I've been working on calculations for a sweater that I'll be publishing, and while doing that I found myself with a gap of time where I was not far enough along in the planning to start knitting the sweater sample, and nothing on my needles - gasp! The horror. Actually, this happens to me quite a lot now, and I've discovered that the most satisfying way to keep my hands busy while I am in the throes of the other aspects of pattern writing is to cast on for an accessory. Which is exactly what I did. I started on Thanksgiving Day and knit between turkey bastings, and was done by the next night. It was that easy and that fun. And now I have another pattern out in no time flat. This is a good one for last-minute knitting. There may be one or two more in my immediate future!
You can find it on ravelry by clicking here or on the sidebar where it has a semi-permanent home.
I hope you all had a great turkey day. Ours was wonderful, with good food, good football, and good knitting.
