Trouble on the knit horizon

I am trying to design a certain something to go with a certain yarn. I checked my numbers and knit. It's very pretty...and very big. What ordinarily WORKS in worsted weight wool does not work in this particular yarn. I think that wool's inherent body and snap are entirely absent...so I have to compensate and make this much smaller than I would normally.

I ran across this little blurb "...the charming Rat acquires a large number of acquaintances, but only a select few ever make it to the Rat's inner circle. For them, he will do almost anything. For everyone else, it's just business." HAHAHA! I think it's very apt.

My curiousity is killing me. What in the knitting world are you up to now?
I'd say you're a rat all right. ;-}

Should have added, I mean that in the nicest possible way, of course. :-}

Yup, spill the beans! Enquiring minds want to know what's cookin'. My DH is a rat, and that saying (and the evil twinkle in the eye) is particularly apt for him too :)!

If it keeps going like it is, it will be an 18-wheeler!

SK said...

I know what it is. Ha Ha Ha. A 20 wheeler!

Hmmm. Big and pretty with inherent body and snap.

A bra. DD.

btw, people lately have been saying almost that very thing about my breastessess. You know, that if they keep going like they are, they'll need an 18 wheeler!
