Remember that yarn I showed you eleven days ago? Here is what I am doing with it. Exhibit A was that complete and total impulse buy yarn. It's turning into a Wakefield Diagonal lace scarf. I think I got the pattern on Ravelry. It's striping up just perfectly.
I don't know what's come over me. In the last week all I want to do is knit. It could be directly related to the fact that I always want to goof off when I have things to get done. Things like cleaning the house before Thanksgiving and such.
Exhibit B is the sock yarn I bought in Norway that was made in Italy. Gulp. No matter, the colors will always remind me of Norway.
I have added some reinforcing yarn and am planning to turn the heel tonight.
Maybe it's the drop in temperatures that has me wanting to knit. Knitting by the fireplace is one of my favorite things to do.
Exhibit C is turning into the "Easy Folded Poncho" from Churchmouse Yarns. This Rowan felted tweed is very pleasurable to work with. It's a brownish gray with bits of blue thrown in for good measure. It's the perfect thing to knit when you want to be knitting but don't want to have to concentrate too hard.
Truth be told I am not really examining my reasons for wanting to knit so much too carefully. I am mostly just enjoying it. But only after I wipe down the chairs and tables, vacuum the living room, and get the tablecloths/napkin situation settled out.
