I've been warned. This is my last issue of interweave knits. And I am not renewing. I have not been grooving with IK in a while. There is only one project in this issue that I find interesting at all (see photo). I read the color wheel article (nothing new there). In 8+ years of subscription I have made only a handful of projects.
I've been in a knitting rut and a ravelry KAL got me working on a project I've been thinking about since 2008. For once I have finished a KAL in a timely manner and I now have a top that I can wear in season. The tantric puzzle top is an unusual, but simple, construction. It is not a pattern really, but a recipe, with lots of opportunity for customization. I made mine stripey and seamless. Stripey because I was worried I would run out of one color (I wouldn't have) and seamless because I know myself and sometimes a project languishes because I have finished all the fun knitting but can't get myself motivated to do the seaming.
Looking forward to the weather warming up enough so I can wear this top.
First completed project of the year. A hat for my BIL to match his son's hat. Finished whilst sitting atop the bleachers at an elementary basketball tournament. Now drying from its bath and soon to ship off.
And here I am wearing a hat I made for my nephew. He loved it so much he said he would never take it off. And he was true to his word, at least for the two days I saw him, except when his parents made him take it off for meals.
