I thought "Tie one on" would be a real quick project, but it took me a whole week to finish. I was progressing like a snail when I came to the front ties. Maybe it was because of the 1x1 rib stitches ... which I don't particularly enjoy. I have to say Rowan Kidsilk Haze is an evil yarn ... it is definitely not easy to work with, and yet I can't help loving the silky soft and hazy feeling of the knitted piece.
I have chosen a very subtle grey colour, which always made me think of Trevor and Igor. Lovely!
If I had this with me when we went watching the Maverick's Surf, I wouldn't have felt like Medusa on the beach of Half Moon Bay because I could have worn it like this and kept my hair tidy on my head:
Now I am greatly tempted to use this yarn again for this.
Note: Special thanks to Claudia on advising how to weave in ends of KSH. I should have asked her earlier ... when I changed for a new ball of yarn. As she said, weaving in the ends is not really a problem. But I stupidly chose to tie a knot when changing to a new ball.
