When you have a knitting deadline, there is nothing more wonderful than getting a nice extension. My steelers hat now has a two week extension, which is fabulous. They won on Sunday and will now face the Packers in two weeks!! Without this win, the project was doomed to sit in my stash with the steelers socks that I started several seasons ago…I am not good at finishing football inspired knits after the season has ended. So this is the Selbu Modern pattern by Kelbourne Woolens. I am finding each row of the colorwork to be fairly easy to memorize and rock through. It just requires my full attention, which means no television shows that have subtitles (sorry Toddlers & Tiaras) or are mostly all about the visual element (like Animal Hoarders). So without my favorite trashy reality television, I haven’t been able to get much done on this thing. I have to focus!
In other news and speaking of Kelbourne Woolens…did you all catch that Vintage Modern Knits is in?! I haven’t been this excited about a book in awhile. I love the Fibre Company yarns and the entire book features their yarn! I am thinking this will be the knitalong for Feb/March:
I will now leave you with your Pittsburghese lesson of the day: red up. In a sentence, “We are having a party for the football game so I have to red up the house.”
