Katherine the Great
I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

The fact that this is a saga has nothing to do with the design. And since I, the knitter, am writing this, I’m going to say it has nothing to do with the knitter. As I often do when yarn doesn’t pool in a manner that pleases me, I blame the yarn. Now, I’ll put up with some misbehavior from a yarn if it will in the end, bend to my will. and it did. After four cast ons, I was able to come up with something other than blue on the front and purple on the back.

What I note about pooling yarns is that the first one pools like silk and I get suckered in and then the second one eats me for lunch. Isn’t that always the way? Before too long, Hunter Hammersen will be publishing this pattern, and along with it, there will be more flattering pictures of these beauties.

    They turned out great. I’d never know that yarn was so difficult from your photo. Very pretty!

    In February I will doing a Friday Fo post that shows the pooling on the arms of a sweater I just finished. Drives me crazy! But I couldn’t avoid it due to the st count as I decreased the arms. Oh well, that’s the nature of variegated.

    Saga. That’s a good word. I’m gonna find a way to use it more.

    Good color there, too.
