After a few nights, I have all the pieces of my gift cactus knit. They’re small, simple seed stitch tubes, so super fast to knit. Now I just need to stuff and sew together! And maybe add a tiny flower or two. Then I’ll add some straight pins for the thorns or needles or whatever those prickly things are called on a cactus.
It’s a good thing this one is going quickly because for some bizarre reason I thought it would be fun to do a test knit. Now. Right before the holidays when I’ve also decided to do another Christmas gift knit. And also I got the pattern this morning and it has tiny cables. Of COURSE it does. Sigh. Where’s my brain these days? But it’s a DK weight cowl, and I just bought a gorgeous skein of DK, so it’ll be fine. Just fine. Everything’s fine!
Happy Wednesday, friends! The weekend is in sight!
OMG. I am dead of the cuteness.
But it’s not even done yet!! And not for you, sorry! 😉
That’s going to be an adorable cactus! I hope the test knit works up quickly for you. I know what you mean about the timing of it, though. I usually pick the worst time possible to do test knits, too.
We’re like dogs when they see a squirrel I guess!
That cactus is cute! Good luck with the test knit. I hope it is fast and fun. At least you get to use good yarn?
It should be fine; cowls don’t take too long. And yes, I’m using the gorgeous blue DK I got at Yarn Social the other day!
