The Kauni


I am unbelievably entertained by this Kauni project. I decided that I wanted to make the Autumn Flowers sweater, and that I wanted my two "colours" to be red-orange-yellow and green-blue-purple. So I have been chopping and spit-splicing (EEEEEEEEEUUUUWWWWWW according to my husband- who, by the way, lets the dog eat from his fork)(spit-splicing is the least of his worries). And this is how far I have gotten-

isn't it cool? I can't wait to see the next couple of rows and how the colours pair up together. It is just so addictive!!!! The way this one goes is this-you knit a 3 x 3 ribbing for a bit, then a 3 x 2, and finally a 3 x 1 in the corrugated ribbing. It has a lovely feel and drape to it-firm, without being stiff. And, I am going up to my in laws and back tomorrow to visit, so that means at least 3 hours of non stop knitting in the car!!! (provided I don't have to look down to often, then I get woozy) (I know- way too much information) Off to go and entertain myself with this knitting-have a good weekend!

Try a motion sickness medication. No more queasies and you can knit (and look at it, too).

It reminds me of a sunrise. Pretty. And mesmerizing.

Gorgeous! Your hubby reminds me of mine, who also finds spit splicing icky, but has French-kissed our Irish Wolfhound (admittedly sort of unintentionally).
