Dun, dun, Done!

So, I feel like my posts have been a little lacking in content lately.  I’ve written a bunch of little, silly posts, about TV and such but nothing with  a lot of meat lately.  Sorry about that.  But I have an excuse.

I’ve been working on a monster of a design for KnitPicks.  And it’s been eating up all my time.  While I still can’t talk about it (not until next year when it’s published), I can tell you I’ve finished it!  A little under a mile of worsted-weight tweed in garnet red.  Tons of cables.  And, well, that’s about all I can tell you.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASorry to be all secretive and mysterious, but I’m super excited about this one, both because it’s a really pretty finished object, and because I don’t have to work on it any more!

I’m sure you’ve had projects like that- huge knits that are marathons of complicated stitches that never seem to end.  And after they’re done, you sit back and go “Wow, I made that!”

I’m looking forward to showing off this project down the line, but in the meantime, tell me about your most epic knits!  I’d love to hear about them.

    My most epic knit I can think of offhand was a cream colored scarf with cabling similar to yours, for a friend of Irish heritage. And fingerless gloves to match. She loved them so much she asked me to make a set for her daughter for Christmas, which was flattering!

      Oh, that sounds lovely! Old-school cables in cream wool are some of my favorite things. Since I started knitting, I’ve always wanted to make an old-fashioned cream-colored Aran sweater. But I have yet to get up the guts to try it.
