Buttermilk Sky Finished!
Don't let me scare you off this pattern. It's just a wonderful knit. It's just I started it in January 2011 and only JUST finished!
Not a commentary on the pattern at all. If I've learned anything about me? I'm very much like a 2-month-old hamster when it comes to attention to knitting projects. I'm a "Oh Shiny!" "Oh! Pretty!" knitter...as soon as something new shows up? I've got to start it (and this is especially true if I happen to have yarn in stash with which to knit it)...
Anyway, Bonnie's pattern is delightful. Mostly a basic 3-stitch pattern, that swaps and repeats. I was reminded of Aibhlinn from Knitty. I made two of those, and was looking at the pattern again this weekend thinking I might knit her again. These three-stitch motifs tend to get me thinking a lot of Maiden-Mother-Crone and the trinity of the Goddess religions (always have).
But if you'd like what should be a relatively quick knit for a warm cowl, this is the one you should try. Buttermilk Sky by Bonnie Sennott.
Now...this will be joining those amethyst mock cable socks and heading to Vermont soon.
And this knitter is heading to bed early tonight. Whether I'm trying to catch something (I don't really think so) or am just worn to a frazzle and feeling the time change and fall temperature fluctuations a bit more than usual, I'm not sure. But an early night is called for.
