Knitting Crack.

Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 (EQ colourway) that is. I swear this stuff is the knitting equivalent of crack. It is so addictive! If I have said "Just one more row" once I have said it a dozen times but then I look at the unravelling ball and see the next colour coming.

"Just until the colour change" she says menaing it full well at the time but I think you know what happens. Yep, then you see the next colour coming.

"I wonder what it looks like with the next colour added" she asks herself curiously and then proceeds to knit a whole other repeat.

There are at least a dozen other things that need to be done in this house but I just can't drag myslef away from the crack! Maybe I will just knit to the red.....

I have just started a new Noro project, and I have the gradient colour change going on at the moment too.

Hi. My name is Bec and I'm also a knitting crack addict! LOL - AAs for yarn addicts!!

I used the Kuani EQ for my Northern Lights shawl and was exactly the same. It softens quite a bit with a good soak as well.

Pattern looks fab - can't wait to see the end result!
