Tie One On

I popped out at lunch today to pick up materials for the mellow version of Tie One On from the spring Knitty. I have finally used up my Valentine's Day gift certificate from Eva's (just in time for Mother's Day, ahem). I chose a soft light blue wool blend, with a contrast confetti ribbon in other blue tones. (Yarn is in the car, or I would post brand and content.) It's to be done on size 11 needles, so it should be a relatively quick knit. I'm aiming for no more than two weeks.

One thing that I'll have to learn on this project is how to pick up stitches. Stitches from the body are picked up on either side of the front to start the ties, and I haven't done that before. I should be able to figure it out with the help of Vogue Knitting, the internet, and wild experimentation.

Picking up stitches is one of those things that seems confusing until you actually do it and then you can't believe how easy it was! Good luck, I can't wait to see how it turns out!
