So, Dani recently gave me about 9 balls of Debbie Bliss Cotton DK in a really awesome orange color. I wanted to make something wearable with it, because I LOVE being able to wear my cardigan around and I’m really proud to tell people that I made it.
The more I look at the projects on Ravelry, the more I REALLY want to make it. A few things are troubling me, though.
- I’ve never purchased a pattern before
- I’ve never done lace before, and it has a lace panel
- I’ve never knit really anything big in the round
By “big” I mean, “bigger than fingerless mitts, or socks.” Not even hats. I’ve only really made one hat, and it was knit on US15 straights, because I don’t have circs bigger than US11. Sidenote: I should probably order the bigger Harmony tips to go with my set. Hmmm.
I’m really, REALLY strongly considering buying the pattern. I really love looking at all the FOs on Ravelry, and I want mine to be there, too! I even found one that was made in the same yarn, in the same color! I was like, “That’s what MINE would look like!” So, well see.
Also! We’re flying to New Orleans today! I’m completely done packing. In fact, OVERpacking, which I always do. And I’m taking some knitting that I need to get done before the end of March. I called both airlines that we’re flying with, and both said that I could bring knitting needles, so YAY!
