Look! Look! Isn't this cool?
I have my mother participating in the hunt for additional colourways. I have 19 now, and I'm willing to move heaven and earth to ensure I get 24 so that each block is different.
I'm having a heck of a time explaining this to people who aren't knitters, though.
"There's this yarn, and it's naturally stripy. And then you do this pattern so that it makes more stripes, and they're bubbly now but it will flatten out so it's wavy." The price of knitting in public, I suppose. All I know is that I get asked about this more than anything else I've knitted.
