This is particularly true if you are, like me, a lover of dpns over circulars, and if you are knitting something with a small circumference with standard 7 to 8 inch needles. Porcupine or no, knitting circular on double points gives me pleasure.
This is another wee gansey I am knitting for the store to help support the classes I teach. With 2 stores, its kind of nice to have 2 samples. I've been dawdling on this sample all fall, trying to fit it in, but as a hand stress relief from the cotton, it was just right.
I knit (and reknit) one of the body sections and now am moving along quite pleasantly on the sleeves. Another inch or two and on to the other sleeve. With only a collar and ends to weave in, I aim to have it done this evening.
When the cotton top is done, and when I have finished another project from the WIP bucket, then it will be time to knit myself a nice gansey. Gansey modern though. Its going to have to have some a-line or other shaping in it for fit.
I have a plan, I just need the time.
