I got tired of seeing this unfinished project in the drawer, so I ripped it out this morning, and tied the wool back into skeins.
I must say, I get a bit of a kick seeing how kinky wool gets when it is knitted. After washing, it was a sorry sight, though --
especially since it once was this --
Classic Elite Inca alpaca. The color is apparently long-since discontinued, since I've had it around for I don't know how long. (Cough--twenty years--cough.) Very nice stuff, so soft, in a rich purple that the digital camera cannot seem to capture. Here is the first repeat of the Beginner's Triangle from "A Gathering of Lace".
One of the things I like about blogging is that my resolve to finish things is much stronger. Who wants to show off a bunch of half-started projects?!
