Perfect knitting

This is the left front of the Hex Coat from Knitting Nature. Knitting it is pure pleasure. There's enough texture and shaping to keep the fingers and the mind busy without requiring full concentration, and it falls off the needles at a surprising speed, leaving the knitter with a real sense of accomplishment. It's the perfect antidote to all the stockinette stitch of the Somewhat Cowl (which should be just dry from blocking, photos to follow).

And best of all? No rush on this one. I won't be needing a wool coat for many months, so I'm giving myself permission to pick it up and put it down at will.

oooh, that's looking and sounding good. I've been considering whether to knit the Hex Coat - I love it. I might have to cast this one on next!

Thanks for dropping by my blog and for your comment too.
