Sitting and Knitting

 I said I wasn't going to do it but I did it anyway. I started a World Cup project. Since I am going to be doing a lot of sitting over the next few weeks I thought I might was well.

 What started it was this. I found this yarn still in it's original bag with the receipt in the closet from five years ago. I picked it up at the SVFF and I remember making myself a right nuisance in the Wolle's Creation booth trying to pick a colorway.

 It's weird stuff. It's a four ply cotton that is not twisted. It's a bit tricky to knit with.

 It's going to be a Brickless. It seemed a popular pattern for this particular yarn.

While I am sitting on my behind for the next few weeks I also need to finish this sock. It's been on the needles long enough. I'm at the heel so it should be an easy gooooooooaaaaaaaal!

AND a huge thank you to Betsy for sending me this package of goodies. Look at that yarn. That button is just too cute. I have to also thank Kathy B for arranging this 4th of July swap. It's hard to believe that it's just around the corner. This summer is flying by!


  1. That looks like some interesting yarn. I’m looking forward to seeing how it knits up. That package sure arrived quickly. I’m glad you like it. :-)

  2. Fun package!!! The 'new' yarn for the Brickless looks very interesting! Nice to use it up!

  3. You'll enjoy knitting the Brickless pattern. Nice swap goodies!

  4. I'm working with some yarn that sounds very similar - tricky but I really like the feel. Kind of wish I'd remembered the Brickless pattern was in my Ravelry cue!

  5. Looks like a good project for that naughty yarn. Can't wait to see what you come up with for the new yarn!

  6. Strickmich is a fun pattern, and the result is beautiful. I made one for my mom.
    I've got to get going on the swap!

  7. i like the colour in that yarn. I have not knit a stitch in a week! I need to get on it!

  8. The yarn that Betsy chose is BEAUTIFUL! Have fun knitting it up.

  9. LOVE Betsy's yarn for you, heart red button and sign!!!!
