I'm not exactly sure where I ran across it, but on a bit of a whim at the end of October, I joined The Healthy Knitter's "A March Through Time" Knit-along and Walk-along, with clues released weekly Nov. 2-Dec. 7.
- Project: A March Through Time, The Healthy Knitter's Mystery Knit-/Walk-Along by Christina Campbell
- Yarn: Make.Do Realize Sport Superwash, Indigo colorway (dyed last summer), 1.7 skeins (466 yards)
- Needle: US 6
- Start to Finish: November 2 - December 10, 2015
- Modifications: 3-needle bind off instead of kitchener stitch to join the piece
The pattern had a musical theme throughout, with theme and inspiration for the five separate sections derived from the seasons; specifically, Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons."
Interlude: The "snow" begins to fall.
Adagio: The stillness, calm, and solitude of winter… "bare branches."
Allegretto: New growth is everywhere with "sweet flowers."
Presto: The bountiful summer… complete with "berries."
Adantino: A final hurrah as the earth begins to show signs of slowing… "falling leaves."
Cheater: Three-needle bind off instead of kitchenering the ends together.
Not a cheater: I walked nearly everyday while knitting the project, totaling over 30 miles in November! I haven't done as well in December, since the tangle with Joe's dog and falling, and with that little thing called Christmas… so many get-togethers and parties, etc. But that will all soon change.
I truly love the finished cowl and have been wearing it A LOT… like, almost everyday-a-lot!!
