My partner is saying that I'm insane... but after finishing the back of the Dave sweater on Saturday, I was itching for something new to work on - I wanted a "break" from the monotony of knitting plain knit and purl row after row... but this... Kaffe Fassett is a genius (and wayyyyy amazing) - I'm starting the Gridlock Cushion and I have done 10-12 rows so far. Ther notes aren't 100% accurate in the pattern - the pattern for the cushion is the same as the one for a blanket in the book - but the blanket "squares" are 25 stitches across, and the cushion "squares" are 20 stitches across... This means that everything within the pattern has to be adjusted accordingly - it's a pattern that you have to stop, move slowly and pay attention to in order to keep it looking they way it's intended...
I also started a month or two ago this seed stitch scarf - we bought the yarn early one morning (after a brunch with friends) and I started the scarf while watching "MILK" (great movie!) - After the movie was over, I had knitted quite a bit but decided it was too wide so ripped back, cast on less and began again... it has been sleeping in my closet - I decided to take it out tonight for sleepytime knitting... I love this yarn - 240 meters, (Austermann Murano) - it's 51% wool and 49% acrylic - the way the colors change it's pretty cool... we'll see what it looks like when (if) it is finished...
