A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

December 27, 2009


Pattern: Incognito by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Verde Adriana (exactly half a skein)
Needles: US8 and 9
Size: Adult
Notes: I needed a project to take to the movies so I quickly cast on for this last night. I managed to knit the hem, do the turning round then knit the another 7 rounds just as the lights went down. I had to do the joining round by feel and was pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. I knit through the whole movie. (Avatar. It's very long and I hated it.) The cowl was slightly longer than it needed to be and I think my gauge tightened up a lot as I got more and more frustrated with the film. I did the duplicate stitch in Lamb's Pride Worsted this morning and stitched down the hem. It's for my older son and fits him fine but it would be too snug for an adult.
