The Practically Invisible Pocket

Today I:
  • had a fresh, hot croissant with a cup of coffee for breakfast
  • ate a banana for Second Breakfast
  • am having a Vending Machine lunch

With the assistance of Jeanette (who took the role of Enabler) I was able to cast on the Katia Fanny Cardigan from the Elann website last night. Unfortunately, because I had not read ahead, I was unprepared for when the pattern struck. I was also unwilling to trek all the way home, leaving behind half a panini and a soy latte, for the sake of one cable needle. The pattern is postponed, and I have only what you see below. The color is fairly accurate.

Fortunately, I am a quick eater. But I am also fickle. When I got home I did not look for my cable needle. Instead, I did this:
I knit more on the Vintage Raglan Cardigan and seamed the pocket. And look! The pocket is practically invisible!

I don't know why this pleases me so much, but it does. I have been a bit of a grumpy blogger lately - the no hot water thing is starting to really bother me, and I'm not making the transition from Winter to Summer very well - but there is still that strange, inexplicable ray of sunshine that is the practically invisible pocket. Who knew?

Last night, I:
  • had a panini, a bag of chips, and a soy latte for dinner at the coffeehouse
  • drank a soy white Russian
  • thought about plotting
  • read some more of The Mystery of the Yellow Room

What do you think of the name Henry Kitteridge? Because he has the bag of yarn.

The pocket looks great! Very invisible. It looks like starting a new project was just what you needed to progess on the vintage piece. Have you thought about cabling without a needle? Is Henry the "right" sort to have all that fabulous yarn?
