Finishing and Starting: The Best Thing about Knitting
I will never tire of finishing a handknit.
Done. Done done done! DONE!
And I will never tire of that moment when a new project begins.
Open horizon! Perfection ahead! I love this yarn! I’m kind of yelling!
Finished: Colorwash Scarf
Our little MDK Colorwashalong is producing some beautiful combinations of colors and yarns. I got into a pretty serious zone with mine, finally able to dip into this Lichen and Lace Superwash fingering. (More kits coming soon in this colorway, Pewter.)
The Mighty Redemptive Power of Blocking is what this thing is all about. Before:
I haven’t knit much in the way of asymmetrical crescent swoosh scarves, so this was 100% fascinating to see the curve emerge.
Started: Love and Happiness Cowls (Two of Them)
Thanks to everybody who has ordered up a batch of our new Haymarket. It is fun to discover a yarn, and especially fun to be sort of stuck on what color to choose. My solution? Make more than one. I was doing perfectly fine working Amy Christoffers’s Love and Happiness Cowl with Elation (aqua), then like a yarn zombie found myself winding a ball of Glee (deep rose) while watching Designated Survivor. (It’s the confused stepchild of West Wing and House of Cards, this show. Hopeful? Cynical? Still watching, so don’t spoil me!)
I think Kermit had something to do with my starting up a Glee version.
Kermit is all about the Glee.
