It's from the Rowan Plaid Collection. The pattern is called "Flood" and is designed by Kim Hargreaves. The yarn has been sitting in my closet, collecting time (not dust), waiting to be swatched. Waiting to be knit into big chunky stitches. 3 sts=1" on US 11's. A big, chunky, knit. Shouldn't take too much time, right?
At least I got gauge. And some motivation to work on something.
I finished Scout's blanket. I did not finish Scout's edging for the blanket. I worked on it last night, but try as I might, Debbie Bliss patterns continue to elude me. I try so hard. Maybe it's because she's an intelligent, English, knitwear designer and I am nothing but the mere knitter, trying oh-so-hard to keep up. I decided I won't worry about it. The blanket is beautiful with, or without, the edging. And I think Scout is ok with that too.
But when Shawn is home, I'll have to work on the Flood Sweater. Yes, I have the Frost Jacket and Cabled Tunic Sweater, but since they require 100% attention to their charts and sloping and slanting cables, I am putting them aside. I will work on them here and there. But I am determined to knit something that doesn't require so much focus. Something that I can finish in a good amount of time. Suffice to say, I'd like to cast on something new for the New Year as well.
And maybe, just maybe, I'll finish my Orchids Socks and start working that Koigu. Just maybe!
