Of course after casting on a new project I went right back to the old one I had on the needles. I had an hour outside of the house to knit today so I wanted something I was familiar with.
I thought this time I’d take a close up photo so you could see the texture. This is one of those patterns that’s great for variegated yarn. The yarn is the star of the show from a distance but up close its all about the texture.
As a reminder this is Vary The Gate by Casapinka. The yarn is Leading Men fiber arts in Koi Pond. I had to look that up because a certain dog helped himself to the yarn tag and shredded it to bits.
In other news, I spent an hour today while my lunch cooked (a baked potato!) weaving in the ends on the cowl. Once I got going it wasn’t as daunting as I expected but I’m so glad it’s done.
