I got a call on Tuesday that the materials for my Olympic short program wouldn't be ready until today. I picked it up afer work and I was able to cast on. I'm gonna give it a shot, but it's gonna be iffy. Here's a picture of the first three rows of corrugated ribbing.
This is the Stained-Glass Hat from Green Mountain Spinnery. I'm anxious to see the progress.
I'd like your advice about class that I'm teaching this Saturday. All but one of the students will be knitting continental for the first time. The hat pattern has several variations to start out with. You can do a single color "rolled brim" before you start the color work OR you can start with a two-color corrugated rib. I'm concerned that joining and knitting the first row in two colors may be just a little nerve-wracking. Plus if we do the rolled brim, I don't have to teach Continental purling!! And I could have them knit the first rows of stockinette Continental, which would give them some practice. You were in their shoes at one point...which do you advise??
I do have a serious need to have a completed project done soon, so I dedicated my last two lunch hours to finishing my red/white striped scarf. (Oh, I have to interject this - I thought of it when I type "striping." I recently saw a calendar of classes that included both socks & mittens using "self-stripping" yarn!!) Anyway, it is off the needles and only needs to be blocked and fringe added.
Well, off to bed - wish I could figure out how to knit AND sleep....
