Speedline!

Holy poop, it's pattern time!!

(I'm a maaaawwwdel, you know what I mean, and I do my little turn on the catwalk....)

Speedline! You know, like those whooshy lines they draw in comics that mean "Hey, you! I'm going fast! You don't need to watch tv for motion and excitement! I got your motion and excitement right here!" (Is that even what those are called?)

I don't really know why, it just makes me feel whooshy.

Gray: Malabrigo Silky Merino, Smoke, 3 skeins
Yellow: Malabrigo Lace, Frank Ochre, 1 skein
Needles: US size 7

Speedline is knit from the bottom up, so each row gets shorter (though let's not kid ourselves, they are long rows- but there's relatively few of them!) It uses neato techniques like this one and maybe also this one, if you choose to use lace for the contrast stripes like I did. Though I'll be honest- it'd be easier to just use another color of Silky Merino, but I wanted Frank Ochre, haha.

Looks pretty good on cranky farmers who are tired of taking your picture all the time!


You can find Speedline on Ravelry, or:
