Ah. Here’s a little green.
Even though I have other projects I should be working on (Cable Luxe Maxi!), I cast on for my Oblique last night. I am in love with the yarn. Ultra Alpaca by Berroco. It’s so soft and easy to work with (so far). I do have a knitterly question for you all though. What is the advantage/purpose for the twisted 2×2 rib? The pattern calls for that (knit/purling half the stitches through the back loop) and as far as I can tell, it’s a little tighter, I guess because of the twisted stitches, but I don’t see any aesthetic difference between it and regular old 2×2 ribbing. I’m so excited to work on it though. Whee!
