Since my Works in Progress list is currently a mile long…I started something new! But it’s something I’ve been meaning to start since December. After much harassment and badgering and begging and other unbecoming behavior on my part, Kate gave me her original Ms. Oni opera glove pattern! I wanted to start right away, and was searching around for self-striping yarns, but Kate convinced me that I really, really MUST use Yarntini. Since Yarntini is such a commodity, I had to wait. But I received my yarn last week and Kate was right, the yarn is incredibly soft and the striping is fantastic and the colors are unique and vibrant. I fully intended to use a different colorway, but Kate (of course!) picked the best one. Kate and her darned good taste.
I’m up to the arm hole shaping on the lace hoodie! Actually, I reached that point a week or so ago, but I put it down because I’m not quite sure if there are any modifications I need to make in the pattern. I eliminated one pattern repeat in the body and I’m knitting in the round. If I follow the shaping for the armhole and eliminate a pattern repeat when I knit the sleeve, will all even out? That’s probably what I’m going to try unless someone points out why I’m headed for disaster.
