feels good to do some knitting.

Seriously. It’s been awhile, which makes me a little sad. When I got back from Market, I re-assessed my knitting situation hoping to get excited about finishing something up. I certainly have enough half-finished things to choose from. Most recently I was working on a cardigan, and it’s pretty far along. I’m just not entirely thrilled with the drape (or lack thereof). I hoped it would sort itself out as more of the sweater materialized – totally not the case. So knitting limbo continued.

Then, I saw this in the summer issue of the Debbie Bliss magazine.

I latched on right away. It’s not that it’s the most perfect thing in the world, but it’s exactly the kind of project that I needed. It’s pretty, it’s something I can wear (in Florida that’s an issue), it’s not a massive undertaking, and it’s not anything that’s sitting around unfinished and causing me frustration…all important things. It is just what I needed to get going again.

And it warranted a trip to my favorite local yarn shop. That place can be dangerous without a specific goal in mind. The yarn I am using is silk, mohair, and dreamy. I can’t stop touching it.

So it goes. I’m very happy to be back on the needles.
