I finally finished by 4 ounce challenge entry and published the pattern. In the spirit of the season - and getting away from the baseball analogy - I named it First Down. This was not a spectacular run and catch first down. No, it was a foot by painful foot running first down. But it was fun and a challenge indeed. Spinning/plying the yarn, imagining something from that yarn, knitting the prototype, writing up the pattern, and publishing it on Ravelry -- quite a feeling of achievement, if I do say so myself. I really need help with some artistic photography (and a model!!). I wonder if I could trade a handknitted item for some artistic help/guidance??
I lost all the before fiber pictures in my hard drive crash. But here's the finished yarn and finished project. Plus the link to the finished pattern. download now
The fiber was Spunky Eclectic Corriedale in the color Winnipeg, spun thick/thin (not on purpose, of course), 2-ply, about 11-12 wpi (bulky weight), 104 grams, 133 yards.
Now I'm off to write up another pattern.................
