It’s time. I’m starting my Grace Notes pullover. I’ve been dithering and waffling and tiptoeing around this project. It’s fancy. It has short rows. It’s got a construction thing that I’ve never done before at the top, sort of a top-down/pick-up/head-south/add-some-arms situation that I am frankly slightly nervous about.
I’ve been cranking out dishcloths recently, learning Norwegian knit and purl. Am I ready to take on an actual garment as a novice Norwegian purler? I don’t know. But I am willing to start an actual garment.
As MDK Rule No. 72 says: No project is too ambitious if you crave the result enough.
I crave! See? There’s so much interesting stuff going on in here. Joji looks to be having a swell time in her Grace Notes—I want some of that!
The final hurdle to getting this going is, as always, color. As my grandfather would say, I could lose a crop with all my stalling.
Maybe you can help me decide? After ruling out various colors for various reasons (no blue because I’m long on blue sweaters, no color shown in the Field Guide, no low-stock colors, no superdarks because I ain’t knitting all those twisty cables for nothing), here are three finalists. So impossible to choose—help!
Atlas in Wintergreen.
Atlas in Whisper.
Atlas in Shale.
What color is The Color? Thank you for your thoughts.
PS It’s true: we are running low and out-of-stock on some colors of Atlas, due to supply chain issues. We are working mightily on our restock, but the ETA is uncertain at the moment. If you are jonesing for the following colors of Atlas right now, tarry not: Natural, Tutu, Pebble, Pear, Lapis, and Cork. We will have them back, absolutely. It’s just that we’re low right now.
