Back to Frog Pond
Not a great photo but who cares. My version of Koolhaas is now history.
Now, I consider myself a master of knitting. I've done just about everything in the 30 odd years I've been knitting. I teach knitting, I understand knitting, I eat, sleep and breathe knitting. But this pattern has me kerfaffled! I was fine up until I reached the second round of the decreases. Then - kerfluey! The pattern made no sense to me, the stitches didn't seem to line up the way I thought they should and I was beyond frustrated.
Couple that with the obvious shortage of this one-of-a-kind, hand-painted yarn and I was done. Koolhaas has bit the dust.
Maybe there is enough yarn for some Maine Morning Mitts?
Meh . . .
