i don’t have a huge amount of time to post tonight, since i have an early class in the morning (class, blah!), but i really did want to get this up because i’m quite excited about it.
this is my (albeit unfelted) cleo clutch. it is approximately 9in x 6in unfelted. i’ll post more pictures and project info when i get it felted, but that might be a while, since i don’t have access to a decent washing machine until i go home and i don’t know when that will be (which is another story altogether). i have to say, as much as i like the result, i don’t like making the twisty cables. i hate how you have to use the cable needle multiple times per right side row. the straight cables, with just one time required every six or so, is much more manageable. i don’t know if it’s just because i can’t stand the cable needle (the stitches don’t like to stay on it! they twist all up!) or if it’s just too annoying. the last time i did the twisty cables, i haaaated working on the project and i told myself that i wouldn’t do it again.
this is the ropes and ladders scarf (that i knit last summer). please don’t get me wrong, there was nothing wrong with the pattern or anything like that. the pattern was actually very well written, but, for some reason, i could hardly bring myself to finish this thing (but i did!). remind me, the next time i want to do some intricate cable design, that i don’t like them, please!
oh, and jason! when are we sending Christmas? i mean, really. is it going to end up a birthday present? ^^
