Breather

That jacket, that dratted jacket, is giving me gauge woes. Gauge angst, more like - there's been some fighting and some pleading and some bargaining and finally some cursing to make a sailor blush, but it still ended up with an ugly needle-ripping incident and an order for an esoteric size of bamboo circular. My enthusiasm hasn't waned, no indeed - the whole colorwork portion will need to be ripped, but I can't wait for my needles to come so I can get back to it.

In the meantime, a little something to amuse:

More to show - and the whole Lurid And Tragic Tale Of The 3.00mm Needle - tomorrow.

That is lovely. I am anxious to see the jacket, yes, but the texture in one color is more my style, and that cable set off by yarnovers makes me SWOON.

Can I just gush over how much I adore your website make over? Just so . . . I LOVE it! But, then again, I seem to love everything you do.

I admire your good humor after having to rip out all that work; I would have had to gnash my teeth and wail for at least a little while (or are you doing that in the privacy of your non-web space?).

you tease! what is this gorgeous breather you're taking?

Even in the midst of a gauge crisis you manage to create wonderful little bits of knitting. How do you do it?

Oh, my, and what is that intriguing little amusement?

Great! The more lurid, the better.

BTW, I'm thinking of making your Print o the Wave Stole in Beaverslide light sport. I am layzee and want a great big stole, so bigger yarn helps. Neat-o, huh? Of course, intentions are not finished projects. But if I ever really do it, I'll send you a pic.

OOOh...what yarn is this? it looks so lovely.

I second Jen's question above, the yarn is lovely what is it?

I have been destroying Addi's a lot lately pulling out the cords or warping the needles ( I twisted and bent a pair of 2's almost in half.) So I can truly sympathize with needle problems. It just sucks when they break and you have to start the project over.

This is so sad, but it's reassuring that you have occasional knitting-caused angst, too!

Hi Eunny... I was just perusing your website, and came once again upon the food section. With all of the recent changes you've made to the knitting portion, do you plan to develop the Eat section at all? I'd love to see more...

What is it?!! LOVE the cables...
anyway, I'm currently knitting your Print O' The Wave stole...but by this rate it'll probably take me another month.

Gauge angst. Good lord do I understand gauge angst. It's particularly difficult with color work and yarn that you said feels more like twine than like wool. Is it springy at all? If not, be generous. Think of it as sewing with suede as opposed to cotton knit. Don't assume ANY give at all. I made that horrendous blunder recently. Actually repeated. Same gauge, totally different results because I was working in color and one yarn was springy, the other was not.

DO NOT GIVE UP!

I really love how a breather for you puts any and all of my current projects to shame. "Oh yeah, look at me! I'm designing a summer sweater and getting ready to submit designs to Knitt-- oh wait...Eunny's started a new project. Game over."

All teasing aside, your "breather" project looks awesome!

let it out!! no need to censor for your knitting sisters. if you need to curse like a sailor, then we're here to listen.

If I didn't already know that you knit at or faster than the speed of light, I might've shed a little tear at all the ripping out. But I know that we will be seeing that project again soon and it will be more glorious than ever.

Your breather project is lovely. :-)

Oooh, this looks very interesting. What is it?

It's gorgeous!!!
Eunny, I always visit your blog; you are an amazing knitter! :)

Hmmm, I wonder if I had this same problem with the dreaded 3mm needle? I was knitting a beaded sweater last year and couldn't get gauge for the life of me with standard size 2 or 3 needles - so I eventually discovered the 3mm size, which sits right in between. I know you'll sort it out, and the finished product will be gorgeous!

Just wanted to gush complements at you. Love your informative articles and seeing your fab knits. Keep it up!

I love that sweater! Are you going to post that pattern too?

Hi from Austria! Wow, this looks so gorgeous, the yarn seems to be heaven to work with - what brand is it?

The WHOLE colorwork section? OMG.
Child, please go find a bottle of wine....
