Rip Van Dyckle

Yum. Yummmm. Yummmmmmm.

It really is nice. And at $13.50 a ball, the most I have spent on Yarn.
And I have 3 balls of it, just waiting to be turned into a hefty cabled scarf, as witnessed earlier. I dub this little mental jaunt "Beowulf".

Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go fondle the yarn, err, sorry, Cast On, before I go to work (it is these random days that I get called in that have paid for this lovely red splurge). Also, for the sake of interest, should I go with a highly structured, symmectrical patterning, or apply a bit of chaos theory to the pattern repeats?

Knitting and yet, not.

So, me being me, I was bored and thought "hey, cables and latticing are cool, I'll make a braided scarf!" Here you can see how far I got. Two rows later I ripped it out.

This is not bad! I strolled down to the yarn shoppe this mornign after a nice coffee, and bought some Van Dyck yarn to replace it. Photos and progress in a few days!

Umm, yes. More slow progress is being made on deciding on the sweater, and I bought a light pullover for evenings here... Yea. More knitting tomorrow!
