My First Moebius!

Between the election day message of unity (Ravelry link/revolving around the symbolism of the one-sided Moebius) from Cat Bordhi herself and taking two days of classes with Cat the following week, I just had to cast on for my very first Moebius.

It won’t be my last.

Celtic Queen helped me make sure my MCO “railroad track” was done properly with a single cross. From there, it was just a lot of knitting until I decided it was time to bind off.

When I finished the attached I-cord bind off, I was worried I had made it too small. Seeing Derf model the Moebius for this photo shoot reinforced that worry. But after wearing it for most of the day at Bloomin last Saturday, I think it’s really the perfect length. I love it!

Oh mama, and that yarn is soooo nice. Wouldn't mind having that around my neck!

It's lovely!! I really need to make one this way. I did it by working the short way and grafting at the end. Not nearly as much fun I think!

Welcome to the wonderful world of Moebius.

I love it! I'll have to make one soon, as well. My niece requested a green one.
