We were just hit with the blizzard of the decade!
The snow is incredibly beautiful outside, though I can say that since I’m now warm inside. We ventured out into the cold for an hour this morning and the drifts are so high!

It first began when I needed some good study knitting… A provisional cast-on and then almost two feet of stockinette. For some that may be boring, but for me it keeps the hands busy so my mind is able to concentrate. It’s a low-key form of multitasking.
This is the result.
Follow the link to Torsion on Ravelry for all the details – my first pattern and it’s free too!
reverse stockinette fabric is knit at a loose gauge and doubled for warmth.
gauge/size relationship is essential for proper fit: best worn with 0″ to 1″ negative ease.
optional notes and directions appear throughout the pattern.
this pattern is easibly adaptable to other stitch patterns or yarn weights.
sizes: 20″ [22"] circumference unstretched
gauge: 7stitches/1inch stockinette
yarn: 600 yards light fingering yarn
needles: two 16″ circular needles size 3mm, or size to achieve gauge
tools: stitch marker, tapestry needle
note: the grey version, is slightly smaller than the pattern calls for. i only used one skein of yarn, but you would actually require two to knit to the correct size.
Thursday: Yarn for this project (great study knitting)
Friday: Brain food pre-exam
Saturday: Practicing with his new giftie
Sunday: Breakfast of champions
Working on my new pattern

Last weekend I picked up this cute fabric – I’d been looking for a while and finally caved.
Doesn’t it match the clover stitch markers perfectly?
This little guy is my favorite!

I’d been wanting to knit this pattern and try this yarn. It’s very delicate but warm and light, using just under a skein. I only did the cable panel on one side which was a lot faster and let me get it done in time (while cables look amazing, I am not much a fan of knitting them.)
For keeping my love warm.
Then, just because it seemed cute…
for: no reason
