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

January 4, 2014


Pattern: Millwater by Beth Kling
Yarn: Plymouth Mushishi
Needles: US8 Addi Long-Tip Lace Clicks
Notes: This was just what I needed, a simple pattern that's not too boring. The reversible cables are on a ground of garter stitch and you only cross them every 18 rows. Lots of simple knitting. Plus I used pretty much the entire skein of Mushishi and ended up with exactly the length I wanted, about a 56" circumference. It's the same size as my Tideline which I have worn constantly this winter. You can wear it doubled comfortably without allowing the wind to get in. Plus you can pull it up over your head when you forget your hat and it rains or your ears get cold.
