ok, so there's 5 days left until christmas, and i clearly haven't done any more holiday gift knitting since my last post. i figured the gifts that are left to finish won't be delivered until the second week of january when i will personally hand deliver them when i am back in minneapolis, so i have plenty of time to finish them up.
in the meantime i have been working selfishly on new items i figure i NEED, since i will be out in typically 4F to 22F temps for that time of year.
yes, that is koolhaas. lovely design, especially since i am a huge fan of Rem Koolhaas. although this pattern is easy to get into a rhythm with, it's not a good one to work on when you can only dedicate yourself partially. in other words pay attention, otherwise you will end up with an unclosed cable.
it's knit up in ryc's cashsoft dk in color 00515 'tape'. lovely yarn to work with as it is super soft and glides effortlessly over bamboo needles, an absolute dream. as long as you are paying attention. or at least remember to stop and admire your work often, because if you wait until you think you are practically finished as you are just about to weave in those ends and decide to check out your skillz, you'll frustrate yourself to no end when you find a whole row of bad cabling due to one little missed stitch. thank you very much.
