Good thing I’m not gluten intolerent


I’m going to knit Ripened Wheat by Tanya Alpert from Haiku Knits. It’s the kind of shirt I’ll wear a lot, provided it turns out the way it’s intended to turn out.

The pattern calls for two kinds of yarns held together both from Habu Textiles, one is a ribbon linen/paper yarn and the other is a fine silk stainless steel. Because I’m a total cheap-ass frugal, I’m using Velina paper yarn from Yarn Paradise‘s discount page. I’m all class, baby. copyright Oddknitty I’m pretty sure it will work. Similar in texture and drape, I imagine. Does this mean I’ll swatch to make sure first? Oh, lolz. Of course not.

I thought I’d give you a peek at what my project bag looks like. When I start a project, it gets it’s own bag and supplies because I like to be able to just pick that bag up and know it’s ready to go. The only time it’s not ready to be worked on at the drop of a hat is when it’s been hibernating for a while and the bits and pieces have been moved to a more active project. ripwheat Listy list!

  • The yarn in question
  • A notebook and pencil; inside I have written out the pattern in an abbreviated form so I won’t have to constantly refer to the .pdf file.
  • A My Little Pony notions bag containing: small scissors, stitch markers, a Hello Kitty tape measure, row counter and yarn needles.
  • The required needle tips and cord (Knitpro interchangeables).
  • A canvas tote bag… I have a variety. This one is from Typo. One of many from Typo.

I’m so super organised and stuff a Virgo. You can tell.
