What was it I said at the end of May– something about looking forward to summertime? Oh yes, summer is in full effect here in Texas. So much that there has been an insanely negligible amount of knitting to show. I knitted a small swatch for a colorwork hat idea I’m working on, but the stranded method I had originally planned didn’t look very good as the floats were way too long, and duplicate stitching the color sections made it way too bulky, so I’m trying a different approach.
Have you ever tried intarsia in the round? I watched a video of someone doing it the other day and it blew my mind. I had no idea it was done with wraps and turns and knitting back and forth while the rest of the piece is worked circularly. Hopefully I will have more success with this method of adding some color to my knitting, because as of right now this hat is looking like a total snooze-fest.
Also, who needs a yarn bowl when you have a sleepy old basset? Five minutes after I took this picture he was wagging his tail and barking in his sleep. Oh Henry, you melt my heart with your sweetness.
