moll flanders project

shocking pink coifI have chosen a small knitting project for Knit the Classic's current reading, Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe. Knitty's Shocking Pink Coif. But I chose the color Shocking Red to represent Moll's… um… lovers. The yarn, which I dug out of my stash, is quite different than Knitty's coif, but I think it will work up well.

I was stumped about what to knit at first too. I am enjoying reading Moll, which I find alternately amusing and just sad, but couldn't find a project that felt exactly right. Plus, I wanted to avoid biting off more than I could chew right now (I'm feeling swamped with other projects). I am feeling like a sloooow knitter these days. I'm still working on Jeff's sock (first of the pair still!) and my topdown sweater. They are dragging along. I'm bored with them. The Shocking Red Coif seems like a nice breather!

    I just left a post on KTC moaning about how I can’t come up with an idea for Moll. I’ve knit this coif, though — it’s really cute. Good luck!
