And I loved every stitch of it (see the project details on Ravelry). I’m going to gush now. Brace yourself.

I love the yarn (Madeline Tosh tosh merino, in Logwood). I love how the yarn loved my Addi Turbos. I love the fabric. I love how simple the pattern is.

I love that I was so desperate to keep knitting that I “calculated” how many more rounds I could squeeze out of the one skein of yarn. And I love that I was wrong by half a round. And I love that I’m so flippin’ consistent in my colour preferences that I had a similarly coloured (Tosh, no less!) yarn going for another project, so I stole a few yards of it. I love that I don’t care that this pinch-hitting yarn is a different texture.

I used to wonder why people would choose to knit the same pattern over and over again (or, you know, even just twice), but now I know.

I want to make 700 of these.
