One Kind of Incentive
I'm now in a hurry to finish the Flower Power Throw. Because a couple of weeks ago, I bought the yarn for this:
En Pointe Pullover, by Alice Tang, from Interweave Knits, Spring 2011. Thanks to them for the photograph.
Everything about this sweater called to my spring-hungry eyes -- the graceful moebius twist, pretty color, sheer texture. So, I'm being quite unoriginal and bought just the yarn the magazine used.
I've also bought a longer needle (did you know they make 60" needles???) for my throw, and more yarn. I'm nearly halfway, and weighing the yarn on my rattle-trap kitchen scale (I have bad luck with kitchen scales), not to mention counting balls, revealed that my fears are probably well-founded. Not enough.
