Interweave - Fall 2007
Karabella Aurora 8
Knit Picks Options - size 7 circulars
It was a pretty quick knit. I am very pleased with the texture of the moss stitch and surprisingly enjoyed knitting it as well. Seaming the moss stitch was a little more challenging at first but then I just ended up putting right sides together and doing some simple, quick and dirty seaming that ended up working just fine since the moss stitch lacks definition on the edges.
The Karabella is wonderful to knit with and I think this will be a perfect weight sweater for our climate. I imagine I'll get a lot of use out of it.
As for the blocking that I was impatiently struggling with... I ended up tossing it in the dryer. This could've been a disaster but it came out great. (I started with one sleeve and dried it a bit at a time first.)
Now I must attempt to get things in order for my father's arrival tomorrow night. You know, things like grocery shopping, laundry, de-cluttering under and around the bed he's going to sleep in, and properly sorting the silverware and kitchen drawers where my boys tend to dump stuff as they unload the dishwasher. I suppose I could've done all this over the weekend when we weren't trying to get schoolwork done too. But I was so busy with all the football, knitting and napping that I just didn't have time. Oh, and I went to church too. Busy, busy I tell you!
