Progress has been very slow and very uneventful on the Hyperion Pullover. The yolk is a honeycomb lace pattern, which looks very nice and will be delightful for a summer sweater, but is also rather time consuming to knit. It is also one of those stitch patterns where I actually have to pay attention when I’m knitting. That works great when Kiddo is sleeping and Husband lays claim to the remote, but on nights I’m watching something I want to watch, or when I’m taking my knitting somewhere, or for the hundreds of other times when I’m knitting while doing something, I need an easier project.
So I decided to cast on for the Clearview Cowl. It came in a kit that I picked up on a girls’ weekend in Stillwater, Minnesota a couple of years back. I didn’t really have immediate plans to knit it, the colors were wrong to go with my winter coat, so it sat in the closet for a couple of years.
However, this year, I got a new winter coat. It is a lovely shade of gunmetal grey, which is lovely and doesn’t show stains, but is rather drab. However, handknit accessories are a lovely way to perk up anything.
I am only a couple rows into this project, but I’m all ready a big fan. It is a rather mindless knit, a row of knits, a row of purls, with a color change at the start of each row.
