In the Mood
My parents were young when big band music was new and hot. Naturally, they continued to listen to it fairly often once I came along. Whenever In the Mood came on Mom’s feet would start to tap. Dad would take her in his arms, and they’d dance around our living room. You’ll feel like dancing, too, when you get into the swing of mosaic knitting. When combined with lace, the music truly begins to play.
In the Mood begins with a modified tab cast on, and switches between sections of lace, stripes, and mosaic knitting to create a knit song that you’ll be in the mood to wear over and over again.
