After knitting hat after hat after hat, I decided to knit something new and different. An adorable infinity scarf that would be perfect for the winter. And in the midst of this adorable infinity scarf that would be perfect for the winter, I got in a funk. Boo.
There are probably several reasons why this happened. Two are really obvious to me. One being that it was a large piece with nothing but a seed stitch. (Which got boring and tedious.) The second is that after I connected my second skein of yarn, the project felt never ending. A third reason could be because I broke a circular needle that didn’t belong to me and I felt soooo bad. (Thunder Thumbs, right here.) But I finished it last week and it is squishy and thick and warm and will be perfect for the winter. Next winter.
I casted on a new hat at knitting class and I’ve got my groove back. The new hat is looking so pretty and flying by. My funk is over. Which is good because I received the most wonderful surprise in the mail from Dawn at Running at Dawn.
It’s beautiful. It’s soft. It’s baby alpaca, which I’ve never knitted with before. I love it. And I can’t wait to turn it into something special for me to wear. I’m thinking something with ruffles… because when I look at this yarn, I see ruffles. I think you might have started a bad thing, Dawn.
