For over a week now my knitting mojo has been MIA. MIA. MIA. MIA.
I think it evaporated once last month's siege of stress came to a close. I have been unable to count stitches for cast ons, for gussets, nor for anything knitting related, really. I have two projects still at the cast on stage after HOURS spent attending to them Friday afternoon and evening, and a small part of Saturday. I have never made this big a mess of casting on and frogging for as long as I can remember.
So what was the commotion about? Moebius's or Mobius's, take your pick of the spelling. I thought I would try the free Mobius pattern Cat Bordhi has on her website. Well, it turns out it's only free if you already own a copy of her very unique cast on instructions, known as mobius cast on MCO). Even with a printout of the directions from her Knitty Gritty episode on DYI, I grew very petulant towards Ms. Bordhi and her CO from hell the more I spent time on it.
With the hope of rectifying this pattern crisis, I hit two LYSes Saturday afternoon with the ultimate goal of getting a copy of Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitting Around, which among many other great things, has a moebius pattern. I had no luck, and though most certainly disappointed, I found something to sooth:
I didn't stop to register the name of this Lorna's Laces colorway but these skeins are soft and sproingy and mine, mine, mine, all mine! Maybe another Digitessa sock?
