Knit Along: Elizabethan Collar from Kirkwood Knittery - Day 2

Elizabethan AND green?

Actually, these long rows aren’t so bad.  They go by pretty quickly.  We’ll see if I feel the same way during the next step when I switch to smaller needles and a new stitch pattern.

I can start to see the drape this collar will have, and the lovely sheen that this yarn possesses.  It makes it worth the wrangling of the slippery yarn. You know, I don’t mind putting in a  significant effort when I can see it will pay off.  I’m not a lazy knitter.  Just don’t frustrate me with unnecessary complications–in anything, not just knitting.  Sorry the color’s so odd on this photograph–I was traveling and had to use my Blackberry to get the shot.
This has been an easy travel project once I got through the cast-on and set-up rows; it’s mostly stacking up knits and purls to form a ribbing so I’m not having to continually refer to the written instructions (something I dislike doing on travel projects).

Speaking of travel, take a peek at what I did with the small batch of yarn I had left over from my neck comforter.  This makes me smile every time I use it.  I simply measured the diameter of a “to-go” coffee cup, subtracted an inch for a snug fit, and used the fisherman’s knit pattern.  Because I changed the length, I didn’t get the tie-die effect, but I like what I got anyway.  Now I’m a green as it gets!  Funny enough, this shot was taken with the same Blackberry–what gives?

I may not be a master of my Blackberry camera, but I’m now Elizabethan AND green…and how may women can make that claim?
