The Aussie WIP Wednesday

WIP Wednesday knitting

A month or so back, a little offer popped up in my Facebook feed.Get $10 off any order over $25 at Suzy Hausfrau. I’m pretty sure the speed with which I hit “get offer” would have broken land speed records. Then of course, the problem was what to get. I fell down the rabbit hole of pretty yarn, and my cart was at a ridiculous level (especially for unplanned-for yarn), and so I cleared it and then asked on Facebook, what would everyone buy. Bee offered up the unusual suggestion of camel yarn – it looked interesting to try, and at $22 for 50g, it was something I wasn’t likely to buy on my own without a voucher, which made it the prefect choice (along with some very cute stitch markers to get me over $25). And yeah. It’s pretty awesome. Just this last week, I’ve cast on ready to make myself some boot cuffs. It was my first time trying the long-tail cast-on method, and I must confess, I’m a convert. Once I got the hang of it, it was much easier than conventional cast-on. My next move is to master magic-loop knitting on my circular needles – can anyone point me in the direction of a good tutorial? Or maybe I should suck it up and learn DPNs. Once I work that bit out (my knitting in the round experience to date has fit on the circulars, so this is new territory for me) I have a pattern in mind, and hopefully they should knit up quite quickly.
