I have my plate so full of designs that I need to complete by not-very-far-off deadlines and full of knitting for myself that I want to complete soon, all I need is a distraction, right?
I was so taken with Nicky Epstein's "Learning the Ropes" knotted necklace designs in the Winter 2010/2011 issue of Vogue Knitting that I HAD to cast on for the "Pendant knot" one. The Noro Daria Multi that I bought a few months ago called to me and I had to start one with it. Since it's a DK weight yarn, instead of sport weight held double, like the pattern calls for, I am knitting with a single strand of it on size 5 needles and doing a 3-stitch I-cord instead of 4-stitch. So far, I am totally loving the results and it's working up fast. It's also not using much yarn at all. I'm going to be making many of these as gifts after I finish this one, which is all mine!
