The August Challenge by EtsyFAST

In EtsyFAST Challenges, Mother-in-law on August 16, 2007 at 11:23 am

EtsyFAST challenged all its members this month to create fiber art items with a celestial theme.

I have cast on for my contribution.

Can you tell what it is?


Hubby guessed right, but I told him in advance what it was going to be. So, I don’t think that counts.


As you can see from the back-side, it is being knitted with a technique called double knitting. I love this technique because both sides look the same. On the flip side, it takes twice as long to knit an inch than it would if I would just knit it “plain”. Well, I suppose that is what I get for trying to be fancy. Hopefully, I’ll get it finished before this month is out.

More knitting news: I am steadily working on my Mystery project. Because I am certain to run out of yarn before I finish, I have the Best MIL in the World hunting down more yarn. You see, I purchased the yarn from her favorite store in Maine. And I can’t find it down here. I’ve looked everywhere – even on the web! Ackk! So I called her in a panic (I don’t sound panicky, do I?) and she said she wouldn’t mind tracking it down. It would give her an excuse to go yarn shopping. I think she’s wonderful!

  1. The bead placement looks like the Big Dipper, but other than that, I don’t know enough about knitting to even know how to do double knitting. :) I can barely knit and purl. I like the color, though.
