In addition to whatever I am working on of my own design, church/movie theater knitting, and a sock (handbag knitting), I almost always have something of someone else’s design on my needles. This I refer to as my OP (other people’s) knitting.
My OP knitting of the moment is the Citron Grande using Filatura Di Crosa’s Centolavaggi Chine thinking that I was using a lace wt yarn. Instead, I am using a cobweb wt yarn. I am not bothered by the fact that it is not looking like much on the needles (Lace typically comes into its own once ruthlessly blocked). But I am finding the ubber thin string like yarn to be a bit of a trial. Just a bit of a tug and it breaks. I bought a big skein specifically so that there would be no knots or joins. I was so annoyed that I bought an alternative yarn, thinking that I would rip it out and cast-on with the new stuff.
Then I changed my mind, again. The pattern is past the fiddly part. Wool blocks better than cotton, and I really do love the dark purple color. Surely I can deal with the pretty, thin,
thread yarn for just this one project.
