Criminy! I have been writing this post as a first post for a new project I started today, having forgotten the project I finished today and for which I had been awaiting a sew job by mother, which she finished. I had photographed, measured and BRAIN FART!
Name pertains to hibernation and frogging of Stairway To Heaven, and going in another direction a la Highway To Hell, the primrose path. Highway To Hell also refers to the challenge of knitting with yarn so slippery it does not knot, on slippery needles. Fortunately, I that did not happen at all.

Unknown 1 represents the brown-gold glitter yarn and Unknown 2 represents the braided ribbon/tape.
In truth, this is the third to last thing that was on the same shelf that needed to be worked up into something. Immediately, knitting was option one because crochet of tape, ribbon yarns makes a too-dense fabric.
I found a pattern that I like – Shalom Cardigan by Meghan McFarlane, but the portion I am interested in is part of a sweater/top. I may be able to interpolate the extra increases I will need to consume the spool of ribbon, but help may be necessary. Fortunately, I found a class where I can find assistance, but being such a cheap-skate, I will check the El Segundo Slipt Stitchers again during sit ‘n’ knit. I previously received assistance from a very talented knitter, but since it was on the fly, I don’t feel comfortable.
It is working up quickly so far…just wait till I get to the hard part: interpolating the increases…aiyaa!
