Slow Going

Working on a Worsted Boxy. Wow is it ever slow-going. I can’t imagine doing the original using fingering. It’s over 200 stitches at this point and while straight stockinette, it just seems like it takes forever to do a round.

The yarn is Miss Babs Yowza Whatta skein! that I purchased at Rhinebeck in 2012. Apparently I never even blogged that trip. But I went and I have the yarn to prove it! So this yarn – I’m on the fence about how it’s knitting up. It reminds me of camo, definitely reminds me of fall. The colorway is “Timberline.”

Speaking of fall, the leaves are changing for sure. It’s noticeable every day. While this year seems a lot colder than years past, we still haven’t had a frost yet. In previous years we’ve had frost by now.

Hopefully my next post will be of me getting ready for Rhinebeck wearing my Worsted Boxy. But at this point I am not optimistic about the sweater!
