As I was looking through my WIPs last week, I picked up Wisp. According to my notes on Ravelry, I started this four years ago, but put it down because it's like knitting thread. Mohair thread, which can stick together pretty easily, making it difficult to frog.
Thread Yarn is from Habu Textiles. My friend C bought a skein of it for me as a gift, and then I ordered the cone to be sure I had enough. I cast on 100 stitches to make a wrap rather than a scarf. With variegated yarn, it's hard to see the stitch pattern, but I do love all the pink and purple tones.
Looking at the pattern again, it didn't seem too bad after all. It's nine rows of fishnet lace (yo, k2tog) all the way across, and then six rows of knitting. Repeat fifteen times. At the same time, you make an eyelet every five rows on the borders. As long as I keep a note for myself for when the next eyelet row is coming, it shouldn't be too bad. I've already had to frog two rows, and it was doable. Now I have two portable projects for hospital knitting, which will start again this week.
What project or book have you taken out of hibernation, and how is it going this time around? How is your summer going? Are you doing everything you want to do?
