Up Next........

Remember Tatami? She's been unavailable for awhile now, awaiting a new yarn since Sundara discontinued her Sport and Worsted Weight Merino (gosh, I loved that yarn!) Sadly, Sundara has not found a suitable replacement yet, but she has graciously allowed me to republish the pattern under neoknits. So I am happy to report that Tatami will be available again (in PDF form) very soon!

For Tatami #2, I've picked out Louet Gems Sport in a lovely shade of Caribbean Blue. DB was kind enough to pick my order up for me from Knitty City this afternoon. He even carried it onto the subway, clear bag and all. I'm such a lucky girl.

I've also been working on a secret project for One Planet in Lanas Puras Melosa. In this pile, there are 2 sleeves, a back and 1 front. Magically, the 1 front is off by .25 sts and .5 rows per inch, so it is a little wider and considerable longer than it should be. I still do not know how that happened, considering everything was knit in the span of 3 days! I thought that this could only happen if a project languished for months or years? No, apparently not. Why does gauge always have to be so cruel?

Ugh, gauge. I've been burned by gauge too many times to count. I hope your discrepancy won't force you to frog!

Ha! He asked us for a bag that WASN'T clear though! but we had nothing to give him.

I can't wait to see how it comes out!

Wow, you're cruising along your new project!
Love the Tatami pattern :)

I love my Tatami and can't wait until it's cool enough to wear it again. (Although, I used my own handspun to knit it in, rather than Sundara's yarn. Just because!)

Yea for the Tatami! Yea for a downloadable version! If it is priced similar to your other patterns, they will sell like hotcakes!
