  • Fish Tacos

    One summer night, out on a flat headland,
    all but surrounded by the waters of the bay,
    the horizons were remote and distant rims on the edge of space.

    -Rachel Carson

    This is what passes for knitting in the midst of my busy schedule of eating fish tacos: I wound some yarn. The yarn is Cascade 220, The Official Yarn of Knitting Underway (TM). The green is leftover from Am Kamin. The magenta I bought to coordinate.

    I have two skeins (440 yards) of green and one skein (220 yards) of magenta. The yarn is being used double and it will be felted. Can anyone guess what I'm making? There may be a little something in it for you, since I'll be awfully impressed if you can.

    Hint: I've made this pattern once before, used the finished object extensively for four years until it wore out, and now I miss it on a daily basis . . . hence round 2.

    I'm going to guess...that bag you had with the felted applique flowers. Close? I can't think of anything else you made around 4 years ago that was felted and in those colors.

    Hmm. Having not known you 4 years ago (or much since then, to be honest), this was going to be my guess: http://www.blacksheepbags.com/amanda_backpack.html (a felted backpack that uses 3 skeins of Cascade 220).

    No guess, but whatever it is will be pretty in that color combo- and you can't go wrong with Cascade 220. Clever way to set up the swift. Mine fits on only one table in the house, vertically. Now I realize it can go horizontally on a chair, or even a door edge or what have you in a pinch.

    Not sure what you're making, Theresa, but I can't wait to hear more about it. My big question to you, however, is what is that exciting contraption around which you have wound Cascade 220?

    Well, I really did think "felted clogs" before I looked at the other comments, but I'm late saying so.

    Hmmmm, buttonhole bag? Doesn't seem like that's be around for 4 years though.

    French Market Bag!

    That's what I would make anyway!

    Yum on the fish tacos, though it's ironic I never ate them the whole time I lived in SD but have eaten them in OK!

    I'm guessing a needle quiver (I think that's what they're called. It's like a really tall pencil cup, but it's for knitting needles instead).

    late to the party but I KNOW it must be fiber trends felt clogs -- I knew that when you said 2 and 1 skiens and held double. It has got to be

    I bet it is a booga bag, to carry all your stuff to work. Hope the suny skies of San Diego are treating you well.
