tied up...
A few of months ago, Paul asked me if I could knit him a tie. I don't force my knitting on other people (except, perhaps, those of the small and newborn variety), so of course I was thrilled. We talked specs and I ordered the yarns (a luxurious merino/silk blend with a hint of sheen). And they were backordered, of course, so it was a full month before they arrived. And then the tiny needles and the skinny yarn and the moss stitch happened in tiny bits while watching Dr. Who and Veronica Mars and all the Harry Potter movies. I finished the length about a week and a half ago and finally got around to the final touches yesterday. I inserted a bias-cut strip of cotton to stabilize things, and grafted the end closed. Then a thorough blocking to bring out the stitch pattern and flow in the increases and decreases. Ladies and Gents, I now present...





...just in time for fall.
