I've gotten back into both Outlander and knitting this week. This bright little hat is almost finished. As I hit the decreases, I started to mull over what should come next. Since I'm traveling, I wanted to be sure to bring enough yarn along. Naturally that meant winding my skein of Empire, which weighs in at a solid 1.7 lbs, a perfectly rational amount of yarn to lug along on a week-long trip. It'll become a Ramona sweater, if I can monkey with the gauge a tiny bit to achieve an in-between size. Peter and I were crunching the numbers before I left. Math is so much more urgent and fascinating when it's about knitting. Suddenly I want to know the right way to figure things out and am not content to let him just give me the answer. It feels good to flex those muscles again.
