There are discussions about product knitters and process knitters. I'm pretty sure I fit into both categories, depending on the knit. Bloom certainly falls into the "product knitter" category. It was lot of stockinette in grey yarn, but I do love the finished product.
Pattern: Bloom by Carol Meldrum for Rowan 36, size L
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in 03, 3.5 skeins
Needles: Addi Turbos Size US5
Time to Knit: Sept 29 - October 24
I was driven to knit this after seeing this picture. I was very excited to cast on once I had acquired the yarn, but the knitting stalled between the front and the back pieces. It was kind of, well, boring to knit. I had a new resolve after Rhinebeck, and decided I couldn't cast on any new yarn until Bloom was finished.
I love the finished piece. It's warm and comfy. It will go with a lot of things in my wardrobe. I'm so glad that there's a chill in the air.
