castonapalooza success

I can cast on like a champ. Last weekend I cast on 7 new projects.


As we all know, my struggle is with follow through.

So far so good though.

I’m done with the ribbing. Miles of 1×1 of ribbing.

And then the short rows with cabling on the WS rows.

Then we have the adjustments to remove a bit of the cabling on the front. Because we all know I can’t leave well enough alone.

And so far? Total, unabashed love for this pattern.

And what rock have I been under that this is my first introduction to Annamária Ötvös patterns? This is one of the best patterns I’ve used in a very long time. It’s complex and she’s thought it out in great detail. And bonus – it comes in 10 sizes. Given the amount of detail in the pattern that’s a lot of work.

I’m very impressed.

And so of course, I’ve already started looking at more of her patterns. A couple more faves for the future…

Tatu – fun stitch pattern and less than 2 skeins of single ply fingering.  As if I needed any more excuses for single ply fingering.

Gaufres – a removable cowl. Genius.

Prelude – this looks like a simple, versatile, well-fitting pullover in a great gauge.  Hello  single ply fingering.

I know. I’m never satisfied with what I have on the needles.

I’ll catch you on the purl side.
