When I look at my Ravelry queue, why can't I see that I have a silk scarf, a Koigu shawl and a log-cabin blanket each in the works? And the Scarf of the Rat, purchased from Morehouse two years ago in the year of the rat, and not yet complete. Surely the purple drop-stitch one could be done darn quickly, if I made it my TV knitting in this sweeps month. Yet I spent more than an hour last night searching the free patterns on Ravelry to find something to do with the four gradient skeins of Tess' Superwash Merino Lace I bought at Maryland a year ago.
At the time I was plotting Eunny's Spectrum Scarf, free via Knitting Daily. But when I go back and look at it, I can't get enthused about holding four strands of laceweight at once. I have many scarves I love already, and at least one other I bought delicious yarn for also last May. So, after lots of browsing, I settled on the wrap called Upstairs.I think this pattern will be interesting with my four gradient colorways. We'll see! I'm casting on wider than the pattern, which does nine repeats across; I'm thinking of 11, which will mean starting with 127 instead of 105 stitches. Stay tuned ~
