Kristi's Technicolor Dream Bag

Today I’m away from the computer all day for some fun. I don’t think it could have come at a better time. This heat has me vying for the Ms. Crankypants 2008 crown.

The above picture is something that has been occupying the few moments I can stand having a large woolly object sitting in my lap for the past couple weeks. It should have taken me less than a week to knit, but the size and our heat slowed me down. It wasn’t so bad though. Pacing my work on that freed me to get a few more designs in process.

I still can’t tell you what that photo above is. It’s a second of a design that will be hitting newsstands in early September. So, I’m hopeful the web page about it and that will be up soon so I can share more with you.

I can give you a hint - I’m teaching two class sessions on it in the upcoming months. I knit it a second time because I need a class sample and can’t be sure to get my original item back in time. I think the class will be lots of fun and I hope to help everyone be brave in their color choices (though that isn’t required, I’ll be making a third before too long in a palette of neutral colors for my mom). Either way, in the class you’ll learn more than just new knitting techniques. You’ll learn some fundamentals of color theory as well!

Whatever that project is - it has very nice colours. And I agree with you - it’s waaaaay too hot to knit anything woolen specially of that size!

Could it be modular knitting - it looks like something modular?

Ahh - the thing of 1000 ends! It’s obviously garter stitch modular, but what it creates, I’ve no idea!

Whatever it is, it’s gorgeously colorful.

Enjoy your break! Hope the heat abates soon.
