I knitted this this afternoon, before and after a trip to Cottage Yarns for Rios colors I needed for various people. Who knew I had nearly entirely knitted my way through my stash of navy? C wasn’t next because I didn’t have her favorite. Now I do.

I took this up again after dinner. I ran to Trader Joe’s a mile away to make myself take another break and then got back to it for nearly two hours more, determined to get it done tonight. This one just had to be ready for tomorrow. I’ll deal with the ends then.

Thanks go to the power-line workers who got the electricity restored at our end of the city so I could safely open the freezer and take out the icepack: I couldn’t have done that much repetitive motion without and I have the sense not to try.

Note to self: loosely-spun dk-weight cashmere, shades of gray and near-black plied together, a Colourmart set108 stitches, 4mm/US6 needles.

And here it is after spinning out in the washing machine. Nothing fancy, just mindless potato-chip knitting.

I think I like it.
