You might remember that the very talented gMarie designed and knitted a very special cowl for both Sissy and me. Well, that same pattern has an infinity version, and I originally cast on for Wondervet, for Christmas. I’d failed to realize she’d still be on maternity leave, and now, I don’t know which of the fabulous vet care professionals deserves it most!
At any rate, here’s 2010’s last FO report.
Project: Walks All Over Infinity
Pattern: My Dogs Walk All Over Me, by gMarie. I did make one glaring change. In part because I was loving the pattern and not paying attention, I charged on past the infinity chart instructions and knitted the entire chart. I decided to carry on when I realized what I’d done, for two reasons. Firstly, because I have two dogs, and the full repeat does two pairs of paw prints, and secondly, because Wondervet is long and lean and might need more depth to keep her thin neck warm!
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash. I like this yarn a lot, but I seriously doubt it’s a true worsted weight. It’s at best a very light worsted, but it is nice and soft, and won’t felt when machine washed. I used just over one ball, and I’m pretty sure that if I’d followed the instructions, I could have squeaked by with just the one ball.
Needles: Addi Clicks, #6 tips. I guess I’m lucky, but I find my Addi Clicks very smooth at the joins, and I adore them.
Verdict: I’ll definitely knit this one – in either version – again and again.
Do tell me about your weekend plans, or anything else beautiful and sweet in your world. We’ll be prepping for surgery and a potential significant snowfall…
