Autumn Colors

This is the Moebius that I started to use up the variegated yarn that I bought in a fit of bad judgment. As is typical with variegated stuff, it looks good on the skein and turns into schmutz once knit. Mixing it with a chocolate brown wool, seed stitch and slipped stitches really helps. This is nearly mindless knitting. It'll take me forever to finish because there are 500 stitches per round and I have more interesting things to do. Also, I finally broke down and bought a 40-inch circular needle. I have no idea how I managed to knit my first moebius without a long circular before. Maybe this approach will work when I get back to the leaf obsession.
