Multidirectional Knitting

Surfing around the web Friday....killing a little dead time at work...I came across a Yahoo group for modular knitting hosted by the woman who wrote Modular Knits, Iris Schreier. If you join the group, you get the pattern for a multidirectional scarf free, as well as other patterns as you go along. I know there are a couple multidirectional scarf patterns on the web, but I was intrigued, and joined. The pattern was sent by Friday afternoon...and I went home and dug out three skeins of Noro Kuryeon that have been languishing in the stash. Have had a really fun time knitting this scarf. After the first triangle I didn't need the pattern, it just becomes obvious where you turn the short rows. I got through one skein and started on the second. Love the way the pattern makes the Noro block into triangles...very cool.

Is this "rocket science" knitting? Uh...no. But is it fun? Yes! Can I watch TV...hold a half intelligent conversation and still knit? Yes! Will I be making more of these? Yes! I have enough Noro for another in stash, and there is a variation to use two colors of yarn that I would like to try as well, which could use up some of the stash as well.

Speaking of stash....ahem. We worked on the hell hole, uh "garage", this weekend. Boxes and boxes, many having been opened and rummaged through...then not closed...crowded half the garage. One by one, Jodie dragged them over to me and I went through...tossing, putting into a pile for Goodwill, or repacking. Ever organized...she had everything put in sections...kids toys, books, bellydance stuff, craft stuff, and yarn. She was flabbergasted at the amount of yarn and craft stuff I have accumulated...hate to tell ya...but we haven't got to all of it yet, especially yarn. Probably another 1/3 of it is still waiting to be discovered. It was sort of like Christmas for me...."oh HERE that is! I was wondering what I did with that...." Having it all in one spot...gee, what a concept. Not having to wander from stash spot to stash spot all over the house, rummaging through boxes? Huh. That's an idea.

I am committed (or is that I should be committed??) to knitting out of stash for a while.... a looooong while. Trying to get my finances in order is time consuming...and means no new yarn, period. Not going to the yarn shop, not looking on the internet at yarn, and especially not even peeking at Ebay. No new books...that one hurts, let me tell you. I did get the new Vogue Knitting mag...and considered it a huge treat.

Have to get the Baby Surprise Jacket sewn up, the shower is this weekend. I hate the sewing up/weaving in ends part. Once I am done knitting on it...I'm done. Need to get my Sofie felted, time ran out this weekend. Longing for the days of taking a half day and going home to knit....but I guess I am paying for all the days I did that when I couldn't afford it....

This is the last week the Boys and Girls Club is open. It is closed the last two weeks of summer....you know...when the two youngest are at the height of their boredom threshold and completely sick of each other. Yay. Color me excited.

I need Jodie to come down and help me organize my two car storage unit. Every January I say this is the year of the garage - and it never happens.

Robbyn said...

I may have a look at Iris' book when it's available and I can afford it. I doubt modular knitting is something I'll ever do much of, but it is interesting in its way and definitely a neat way to look at things :)

Libby said...

How did you get your pattern? I joined and posted my intro, and never received anything. Hmm...

Cute scarf tho'!

Sahara said...

Hey Libby...I noticed several people have said that on the list...they just "reintroduce" themselves and all seems to work out...I would give it a go if I were you, just re-post saying..."gee never got my pattern, here I am again." :) The pattern is worth it in my mind.
