I’m finally making headway on Deep Into the Forest. In fact, in the last few days I finished the yoke. I’ll miss the color, but I won’t miss working with multiple threads. It is challenging to juggle three or more colors, especially on the backside and throwing in a scad of purl stitches throughout the pattern. Most of the rows are just two colors, but even those are a pain when mixing knits and purls.
The results are worth the pain. Here is the entire yoke and one close up of the back, which is almost as enchanting as the front. That is true about so many things. This may explain why “The Making of…” documentaries are of interest to so many.
Wilson and I are getting ready to head out to the state fair, where we will undoubtedly grow a bit, too.
