Knitting |Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 4:53 PM
tags: , ,

Last Thursday I planned to knit at Tangle in the evening. Except I forgot to bring a knitting project to work with me. I mentioned to a colleague that I needed to leave work a bit early (or at least on time) so I could run home and grab E’s socks to work on at Tangle.

“I suppose you can’t start a new project and save the extra trip?” My well-meaning and non-knitting colleague queried.

Ahem…

It is for this reason that I am now knitting the ubiquitous Clapotis that every knitter in the blogosphere has knit at least one of. Mine is being created with Blue Heron Yarns rayon/metallic in a colorway that is aptly named “Parrot.” I can’t seem to find a picture of it anywhere. It’s predominantly red/pink/orange/gold, with touches of blue/purple/green in all shades and a strand of gold metallic. It knits easily and the drape of the fabric is wonderful. I’ll try to get a picture up.

But it’s not my fault I started yet another project. Right? I was good this weekend and knit an inch on E’s socks. Really! I don’t know why I can’t seem to get enthused about these socks. I like the yarn. I love the color. I like the pattern and it’s not tough to knit. But I will be glad when they are finished.

Knit One, Kill Two (Knitting Mystery)

One of the Thursday Tangle knitters said she had started reading a murder mystery by Maggie Sefton called Knit One, Kill Two set in a yarn shop! This is apparently the first of a planned series.

So of course I had to get it, and I found a copy at the Beaverton Powells.

It’s not the best mystery I’ve read. The plot seems just a little too pat and the characters aren’t well fleshed out. But there is one minor plot line that I just love. The protagonist is being taught to knit by the local knitters who gather at the yarn shop. She has so far learned only the knit stitch — she can’t purl or even cast on. But she already has two projects going.

That part of the book is at least realistic!
