delicate lil’ thing
A few weeks ago I taggged along on a business trip to LA while The Husband was speaking at UCLA. While I was packing the night before we left, I realized in horror that I had nothing on the needles to take along to knit. Well, I DO have a pair of socks, but ugh, they are not singing to me. I scrounged around in the stash and dug up some Sereknity Sock Options Good Harbor in the colourway Winter of my Discontent. I’d bought this yarn at SPA last year but hadn’t quite found the right project.
I tweeted for suggestions of what to knit and (Anne) suggested Ishbel. At first I poopoo’ed it, because there’s 80 million of them out there, but then I realized there’s 80 million of them out there because it’s a fun, quick knit.
I cast on during the flight out and knit the bulk of it in LA so that I had only a few rows left by the time I got home. I knit the small version and used just under 300 yards.
This one is going northward for Christmas, but I think I might have to whip one of these up for myself too.
All the details are here on Ravelry.
