Krazy Little Circles


From this perspective, it doesn't look so bad . . . with it sitting in my lap, or peering down at it, my eyes all squinty, and my lips pursed in concentration, it looks like poo.
And I feel like poo when I knit it - it's exhausting! Adding that extra color to the row just throws things into a tizzy - a big, twisted muckety muck. I sort of have a sytem of throwing my yarn, and I say sort of, because I have to really think about it - it doesn't come naturally at all, and I can't seen to find a production machine-like rhythm that I usually have when I knit.
But, I will perservere! Our next class is April 24th, and I hope to get to the armholes so that Lisa can show me how to put the steek in.

I'm glad you are going to keep working on it, because I can't wait to see how it looks once finished - I really like it!

All your knitting projects are FABULOUS! I think this one will be too.
Someday I would like to advance to complex knitting like that.

It looks so good! I think it'll be totally worth all the twisting when you finish it.

I agree with Knitting Novice. It looks great! Remember, people will not be looking at it bunched up on your lap all squinty.

I don't think it looks like poo! I do agree with you that it is going to be an extra warm vest. Good thing there are no arms!
