Disappointments and updates.
Im sorry. Im not a happy puppy! Two days wear, and Julia ribbings are all flat. You would think a yarn has been tested, not only created for "cool" looks. It is the Rowan Cashcotton 4ply. Cotton, Angora and something. Totally lost its form. Sigh, after half a years work. I should have figured overexpensive and micro-somthing does NOT mean it is great! Now I should really stick to WOOL. So, I started Catherine. Worked like a dog, and, even if I have swatched, I must have counted wrong, Ok, I'm big, but not THAT BIG, which of course means a 2 dm (20cm) should be removed. I did on circular, so, Rip rip. 6 hours work gone. But it will work great. Interesting I will knit small size ;-) Anyhow, I realized I did not have Catherine on wooden needles. So, I needed a new small project on the plane. I found HPNY Knits great Kidsilk mohair in cerise. Just matches the Danish Tussah silk -merino mix (Nikolaj). Wooden needles size 8 (no! NOT US size). And-now are Vouge Knitting on every news stand, and I have NOT got my copy? Why, I say WHY! I sure hope I will not miss IK too!
