I Don't Know What I'm Knitting...

When I print patterns, I try to only print the pages with information I'm going to need. I know what the thing is supposed to look like and I don't need a full page picture of it. I'm also usually on the last bits of ink in the printer.

Sometimes I'll need to go back to the original download for a missing bit of information, like a needle size or to figure out what an unfamiliar abbreviation stands for.  It usually works out just fine. Except this time the name of the pattern wasn't on any of the printed pages and I couldn't find the project anywhere in my Ravelry queue or by searching for free patterns for triangular shawls that use 600 yards of sport weight yarn. The yarn company's name was on the bottom of each page, but I couldn't find it on their website, which has hundreds of patterns.

Not knowing the name of the pattern was driving me crazy. I could post progress pictures here and explain that I didn't know the name, but I always want to give credit where credit is due, and to make it easy for you to find the pattern source if you want to knit what I'm knitting.

I sat down with my Ravelry queue (which is 1700+ projects because that's my particular brand of crazy) because it had to be in there somewhere, even if I couldn't find it with the search function. Turns out I'm knitting Halfway Home by Amy Gunderson, a free pattern available at Universal Yarn's website.

I feel so much better now that I know what the name of the project I'm enjoying so much is. Do things like that drive you crazy too?

I am glad you are nuts that way as my good friend is a knitter and I do forward some of your blog posts to her when I see some knitting I like or think she may be interested

Yes, that would definitely drive me crazy! It's a pretty pattern, and I hope you finished it. Or will. The color is gorgeous!
