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.
