So much more fun than garter stitch.
Yarn: Bryspun Kid-N-Ewe (50% wool/50% mohair, discontinued) I think I've knit 6 balls into it so far.
Needles: Started on size 6's, but it went into deep hibernation and I forgot what size I used and picked it back up on size 7's. (Yes, you can tell. But it goes faster this way.)
At last count, there were 697 stitches on the needle and it was taking 24 minutes to get through one row. It is really big. Like, it is 30" deep, and has a 62" wingspan. To give you an idea of how big it is, here is a picture of it on my full-size bed:
|It was incredibly difficult to get a decent picture so I settled for this one. Sorry. At least you can see how big it is, even if all of the texture is completely lost.|
Naturally, every RS row adds on four stitches and counting them just makes me sad. So I'm just going to knit two, purl two for 4 painful inches while thinking back on just about every other project I have ever knit. Especially the ones that were bright.
Whenever I'm not reminiscing about previous projects, or rhapsodizing about projects to come (hello, pullover!) I will be dreading the epic bind-off that looms ahead...
What are you working on this Wednesday?
