Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)

The Name

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) by ABBA

First song that came on when I sat down to post this…however, I’ve been told I am spoiled so yes, since I am in between projects, “please do, gimme! gimme! gimme! (a man after midnight)!” Ha ha ha ha ha!

The Cowl

Dimensions: 16-inch height x 13.5-inch diameter
Destination: Charity

I started with lighter weight yarns, ending with heavier yarns. I made it extra high because of the natural curling of the stockinette fabric. Except for the militant rigidness of the Kmart Sayelle, I think I did a pretty good job with manual color manipulations – this makes me smile.

I began with the White Boucle double stranded with a mercerized-cotton-type thread. I presumed the boucle to be worsted, but now see that it might have been a lighter weight, especially with the Mint Green Baby yarn right next to it. My guess is that the baby yarn is probably a sport weight. Then the Banana/Avocado Ombre Boucle, which I presumed might be bulky, especially when I noticed it poofing; I think it it turned out to be a more of a worsted. I had left-over Kmart Sayelle sitting on my desk and I wanted to incorporate to be rid of it, and add balance to the cowl by knitting it with another purple thread.

I can only hope with further laundering, the Kmart Sayelle might soften up and not be so militantly rigid.
