Kim posed the following question in per post today: "If you could knit anything you want, unlimited by money or time, what would it be?"
It just so happens that I had just cast on Na Cragna a couple days ago. It is my dream knit! The pattern is beautifully written, with no mysterious instructions open to interpretation. I have made a couple minor errors which were easily corrected by "unknitting" down. The cabling is deceptively simple - very rich looking but using easy techniques. No cable needle needed - a big bonus for me because I prefer not to use one.
I must thank Katy for going to all that trouble to knit one of these up in Cascade 220 just to show me how perfect this yarn is for this sweater. Plus, she took that long trip to Rhinebeck to show me in person! Thanks Katy! This yarn is soft but substantial and the cables really pop.
Kim's question came at a time when I have been a bit "stash bound", so I must admit I didn't really close my eyes and try to imagine no limits - anything is possible. I'm sure, without much straining, I could come up with quite a list, like, say, this, this or this. But in the meantime, it is quite satisfying to be working on something so pleasurable while keeping my promise to myself to stick to the stash!
Happy Dreaming Everyone!
