Okay, so I’ve had very little time to knit in the past few months. A while back, I bought this really neat yarn on clearance. It’s silk and ribbon-ish. It’s also bright orange, sort of a tone-on-tone. I’m pretty sure the color is going to work on me. I hope so! I found a pattern that I thought would work great — garter stitch that’s done on the diagonal. Very drapey. But it was an odd combination of crashingly boring, and very meticulous at every edge, since it’s all on the diagonal.
Thanks to a lengthy car repair, I got to spend some quality time on the project today. And realized I wasn’t enjoying it at all. I ripped it all out. I can find a better pattern for the orange silk yarn.
