It was called last night, sometime around 8:30 pm the decision was made that I was done dyeing for KW Knitters Fair on Saturday (please come see me). I have a post for tomorrow that outlines what is coming with me, but for today I am so relieved that the dyeing has been finished. I have some reskeining and tagging to do, but well under an hour's worth of work remaining. Now its time for the knitting to commence.
About a week ago Christina (big sister and exploited studio assistant extraordinaire) was over working for free on one of her days off and we were discussing samples and what I was going to wear. It occurred to me that I didn't have the perfect piece for the Fair and perhaps I should knit something. Yes, less than two weeks away from the show I decide to knit a garment. In the nature of self preservation a vest was decided upon, the Clustered Vest by Miriam Felton. This is cool, well designed, interesting, different, unique construction, and in theory a quick knit (as in no sleeves) and will be perfect in case I get a bit too warm on Saturday. I decided on Franklin Island Lichen, it was a perfect compliment to my planned outfit and fun for fall, plus I didn't have a garment or sample from this colourway. Double bonus.
So its knitting time. I am almost through the front (you knit it like a scarf and then knit the back separately and seam it together) and have a pretty open schedule for the next two days. However, I still think that the odds of there being seaming going on in the hotel room on Friday night is fairly high. What are you working on this Wednesday.
