Kiri B Gone

That's right. I made it to row 47.


Its just, well, the Kiri, she is the right pattern at the wrong time.

The yarn is wrong. The intense varied colors are so beautiful but not on this. The symmetry and repetition are lost.


Its not doing the yarn or the pattern justice. And I am all about justice.

Also wrong? I'm a social knitter. I knit while sitting with others. I like to talk with those I sit. The Kiri, she demands the attention. This morning my friend Peg invited me over for a swim & knit.

Here's the conversation:

Peg: So, what're you doing next week?
Me: Mmmmm, hold on, wait till I get to the YO.
Peg: Oh oh I'm, look at this row and tell me if I increased right.
Me: Yeah, Mmmmm, oh damn, hold on,it looks like you did it.....2,3,4, 5 K2T, hold on, wait till I get to...
Peg: Oh, sorry. What do you think of...(interesting idea for neighborhood crazy parade next month)
Me: Damn. Was that a YO? Hold on...(*cursing, counting,cursing, repeat from*)

I will make a Kiri in the future, out of a lovely solid yarn, when I'm having some quiet knitting time to myself. For now, the Kiri, she is history. My sister will still receive a wrap of some sort later this month, it will be made from this wonderful variegated soft yarn that I'm still crazy about. It will NOT require undivided attention.

Maybe a simple short shrug-like sweater. Or...can you say Cla-po-tis ?

I'm guessing Kiri and a six year old jumping on the couch are not a good combo either...

I'll be interested to see what you come up with for a wrap. The yarn is gorgeous, and I think some kind of lace would be lovely, but not something that demands that you see a a leaf...because no, I don't see the leaf either. You could always go with a feather and fan kind of deal, which tends to look really nice with the variegated yarns.

That yarn looks like it would be perfect for "the clapper". Can't wait to see what you decide. :)
