Seeing Red

Knitting again on this cardigan started last year, which went into hibernation due to other projects that came up, and quite frankly, was forgotten.  Now near completion, I am in a total state of agitation, as I have had to knit the left, then the right button bands over, then bind off again & again. Soon it will be finished, and I can show you, after I get it all blocked a second time and buttons sewn on of course.

In the meantime…

I’ll show you some photos from yesterday’s knit-walk.  I followed Emma down in the meadow above the canyon (coyote-ville), and to our surprise, Emma spotted something very curious flapping in the breeze ahead.

Closer and closer,  curiouser and curiouser !

Ah ha ! There has been someone who has been adorning the mountain with Tibetan Prayer Flags around here lately.   The Masked Flagger has struck again !  They are admittedly quite a spectacle of artistic beauty. (That is, until they become bleached by the sun and wind-whipped to shreds.)

Oh, and is this a little knitting growing on a vine trellis ?

    • Thank you Martha ! It’s just a basic EZ style yoked sweater… you’ll see. I’m making hash of the button band & steek edges way too bulky for my liking. But oh well….

  1. Those colors warm my heart. I must see this one in person. Are you mitering the button bands at the corners? Prayer flags are so spiritual a find on a fall walk.

    • Oh Lizzi, I sure wish you were walking & knitting with me 🙂 So, I’m doing ‘surgery’ so to speak, with an iron , moist rags, and drawing out the stranded yoke more, basically pushing and shoving (gently) and going to maker fit as I want her to fit. I love the vintage wooden buttons I bought last winter for it…. going to be posting them soon !

I'd love to hear what you have to say...
