Getting Started

Welcome. Teresa and I have decided to write a knitting blog together. We email each other about our knitting almost every day, so we thought: “Why not post our knitting diary and include photos?” It may be kind of cheesy to “borrow” the idea from Mason Dixon Knitting, but sharing a blog is a whole lot less intimidating than writing one by oneself. (Besides, I might as well disclose right up front that I can be cheesy sometimes.)

So here goes:

The project du jour is the Basalt Tank from Knitting Nature. It’s my first Nora Gaughan pattern, and I’m loving it. In fact, I raved about it so much T decided she had to drop everything and knit one. There’s something really fun about completing a hexagon, or partial hexagon. I’m nearing the end, and I’m still not tired of it. (This is highly unusual. I have the attention span of a gnat.)

The yarn is Sonata from Elann.com in the Capri Blue colorway. You’ve got to love Elann! I bought 5 skeins of Capri Sonata last year with a different project in mind. Over the past few days it’s become apparent that I’m going to need more, and Elann still has the correct dye lot. How lucky can a girl get?

Now that I know I can get more yarn, the remaining suspense is all about fit. I’m using size 4 needles and following the directions for the smallest size. However, my gauge is always way off, so the tank will be much wider than the 30 inches the pattern predicts. Hopefully, it’ll be done in the next week so you can see for yourself how it turns out.

Over to you Teresa.
