It's is this -
My friend posted on facebook that she had one, and would anyone like it, and I cried Yes! A thousand times Yes!
I have been coveting one of these for many years.
Hand knitting will always be a craft that I enjoy, but I have no love for the seemingly endless stockinette that presents itself in some projects.
Since I got this beauty on Friday (late, like after sunset, because I just couldn't wait another minute) I have finished the back and half of the front of a sweater for The Elder,
and this scarf (the body of the scarf was on the machine, I did the face and tail by hand).
I still have a ways to go before I am truly proficient at the machine.
The front of the purple sweater is so short because with one pass of the cartridge I managed to disengage every needle and the whole thing fell off.
Also, the foxy scarf is about 2 feet too long.
Once you get into a rhythm it's very appealing to just keep going.
So, I think I am going to cut the top 20 inches off and make it into a hat, and then re-knit the fox face on the scarf.
In hand-knitting news, I am so very nearly finished with Grettir.
I had hoped to finish it this weekend, but I got distracted (see above).
Just the Kitchener bind off and blocking left to do.
What are you creating lately?
