How many variables???
While at home, I tend to mostlymachine knit. There’s always ahand-knitting project on the go, for knitting in front of the TV, and in thecar, waiting in lines, at the doctor’s office, at YRKG meetings, etc.
For our annual trip to Florida, Ienjoy picking a hand-knitting project to knit along the way, and also duringour stay, and the drive back. That’s afair amount of knitting time. I pickmultiple projects, so there is variety, and of course, so I don’t run out ofanything to knit.
Well, this year, was a little morehectic than most, in December, and clearly, I did not read the materials verywell.
Project #1. Harvest Jewels,in Knitters Magazine K104. I thought this was a top-down knit, withfair-isle at the yolk, knit in the round. Great project to try the Portuguese style of knitting, for thecolorwork. Well!!! Not a top-down, but Ican do this, knit it “upside down”. Oh yes!And backwards, since the Portuguese style of knitting is easiest when doing thepurl stitch. This style of knittingreally reminds me most of machine knitting, as I am looking at the purl side asI am working. Well, it’s started. I did decide ahead of time to use only oneyarn for the fair-isle, so that should make it a bit easier?!?!?
I’ll keep you posted.
