I haven’t clicked my needles lately. But I have good reason. Really good reason. Or… reasons.
I got this wise idea last year to knit matching infinity scarves for my three lady friends. I found the GAP-tastic pattern and immediately fell in love with it. Simple. Trendy. Useful. So I casted on with light brown yarn and got started. I finished in about 2 months. And then I casted on with pink yarn. I finished it in about 3months. Finally, I casted on with purple yarn. Six months later, on Thanksgiving Day, I wove in the ends. And it will be a very, very, very long time before I even blink at another pattern that has a seed stitch. But the screaming fingers and 11-month time line was well worth it. Because they were perfect.
For Natalie, a natural color.
For Abby, a bright and lively color.
For Kelly, my Little Skipper, purple. When I look at her, I see purple.
Squishy. Warm. Perfect for a cold winter day. I really want one for myself… but I will be waiting a long while before I even decide what color I want. Just the thought of knitting the seed stitch over and over and over again… yeah, it will be a long, long while.
