|The perfect cup for this years Viajante knitting. The shawl need blocking.|
This may qualify for some sort of craziness. I am a part of my own Tour de Fleece. That is a spinner event during Tour de France - cycling by the best of the best.
As I do not spin knitting is fairly close. As long as others do the spinning.
Last year I knitted a Viajante for a friend in 13 days during the race. I did the same this year as well.
Not for the same friend - for another who will receive it late August.
I was so lucky to find a cup on Etsy to sort of underline this knitting madness.
On the back of it the word Viajante is written as well. Oh yeah, I love this.
Well, since Tour de France lasts three weeks, what do I do the rest of the time?
I knit another Viajante... This is my 10th and in my absolute favorite color, turquoise.
Both are knitted in Wollmeise lace. And I have gone from 2mm needles up to 2.25mm needles. My 8th Viajante got a little too thight.
Without a little craziness, life would be very boring indeed
|Finally a Viajante in my favorite color turquoise. My tenth Viajante :-)|
