I've stalled out recently on my From the Ground Legwarmers. Fortunately the benefit of having multiple WIPs means I always have something at the ready. Weirdly the only other project I have going is my Rosemary Cardigan, which has been very slow going. Something about the gauge at which this cardigan is knit has really slowed me down, but now that I am farther along into the body I seem to be picking up a little bit of speed.
Yesterday morning I finally reached the end of the first skein of Cascade 220. Because I'm fighting off a cold I really did not fancy doing my usual felted join and decided to try something new that I have heard a lot about but have not tried. I pulled up videos and taught myself the Magic Knot.
Yes, I was still in my pjs. There's nothing more comfy on a Monday morning than cartoon Darth Vader pj pants. Even if it is 90+ outside. This knot really is magical. I tested it by putting a lot of stress on my yarn and still it didn't budge. And then I knit it in. Can you see it?
Really? I promise it's there. Can't you . . . Ah, well . . . that Jane Richmond. She's a magical lady.
