It's that time of year, in more ways than one. It is chilly most of the time and DARK very early in the afternoon, and almost non-stop football/hockey. Oh, and pre-Christmas. So that means it is TIME FOR KNITTING!!
Above is 20% of Stephen West's Spectra pattern. It is UNFORGIVING! Which means I will not ever be planning to enter this in a state or county fair, AND this is not the project to pick up if I am sleepy. Short rows!! AND Intarsia!! AND size 3 needles. I am pretty sure, however, that when I get it finished, washed and blocked, it will be beautiful enough for casual wear!
This is the beginning of a mystery project. I am so glad that I mustered the courage to try a two-color cast on... AND to follow that by a slip-stitch rib. Those Baltic knitters.... SO smart!!
This is the most mysterious part of all. With all those spikey sticks, I'm thinking it looks a little like sushi! (But it's not!)
