After the Rip

The rip fest mentioned the other day has been accomplished and the yarn put to much better use.  See?  It’s ever so much happier now.  Of course there is the small issue of Rosamund’s wrist being slimmer than mine (freaky man hands, that’s me).  When it’s on me, it opens up a bit more and shows off the fancy stitch work. I’ve got the second one on the needles and should have it banged out with a few more hours of knitting.

The yarn is Nichole by Schaefer in Dian Fossey.  There’s a lovely gray bit hidden in among all that green, and it’s at just the right interval to spiral nicely.  When I found a knot, I made sure to remove enough yarn (and line up the new strand in such a way) that the spiral continued uninterrupted.  I’m far more amused by this wee stripe than any normal person should be, but I’m sure all knitters will understand the delight of well behaved yarn.
