This, my friends, was the first knitting project that I’ve really enjoyed in a very long time. Love the yarn. Malabrigo Rios in a gorgeous colorway. Love the pattern. The Windschief is a fairly quick knit that allows for some mindless knitting while still having enough interest to keep things from getting boring. And I LOVED the process. That is something unto itself. Under the best of circumstances, I’m a product knitter, not a process knitter. I really had a good time with this one. Add into the mix that this is for the totally knitworthy Ami–a Silverbackks badass–and it was a winner all around.

On a related note, this was my first time knitting with square Kollage circulars with a firm cable. I’ve used the Kollage squares in the past but found the soft cable version to be a bit flippy-floppy for my liking. The firm cables are pretty awesome though and the square needles were very comfortable to use. I’d consider getting more of them.

This, BTW, is not Ami. This is me and my round melon, running around all willy nilly in her hat!
