For the past 10 years (and for several years before that) I have met with a group of friends for knit night. In Los Angeles it was at my local yarn store, and in the beginning in Kansas it was at a local yarn store, but sadly both stores have closed. Now my closest friends and I get together once a week and knit and talk and laugh. I decided that since every Wednesday is knit night, I’m going to start a Wednesday Knit Night post tradition to talk about what’s on my needles.
Ever since the Yarn Harlot started it, I’ve been participating in the Ravellenic Games. Basically, any time there are Olympics (winter or summer), I select a project to complete while watching the Olympic Games. This year I decided to pull some yarn out of stash and knit a Potawatomi by Carol Sunday. I’m using Sunday Yarns Nirvana 5-ply, a 90% superfine merino and 10% cashmere yarn, in a beautiful mauve color called Berry.
My goal is this:
I purchased my kit a few years ago already, but was anxious to get started for this year.
The last official picture that I took was when I was partway through the front section:
At this point I’m almost done with the body, and ready to cast on for that cozy ribbed collar. I hope to get the collar started, if not finished, tonight at knit night. Then all that’s left will be to unravel that column of stitches to the right of the cable, and knot it into fringe.
Bring on knit night!
I think the color is probably most accurate in the middle photo.
