The Mobius I could Handle
I couldn't attempt anything the least bit tricky or new lately. I just needed safe, easy knitting. Anyone who reads this blog, knows that I am not the technical knitter in the family. Thank goodness for Al. :)
So this is the Mobius I made by knitting a strip, twisting it and having Al finish the one measley seam this requires. I used a loop mohair from Knit Together in My Mother's Womb Lynne's swap, and another complimentary fingering weight. This gave it a soft fuzziness that makes trying to find the seam, pretty tricky.
It is nice to wear on these useasonably warm Chicago days. When the wind picks up I just pull it to the top of my head. Someday I'll learn to make the Mobius the intended way. For now, I just needed to keep knitting. What's up next? Another simple simple knit. Embarassingly simple. Comfort knitting, for me.
Please leave me your email or blog so I can thank you for your comment.
