I sometimes look down at my project bag and realize that everything that I am knitting is the same color. I am currently in a “light teal” stage. I did finally decide on a project for a quick spring scarfy thing. I chose the Opera Scarf project. I spent much of the weekend walking around with a hank of Miss Babs Moo and Ewe around my neck, knitting right from the skein. The color is amazing! This is the color “Forever.” The one bad thing about Miss Babs being in town, is the amazing quantity of color options.
I am also working on the first project from our Indie Indulgence Club. It is a sleeveless vesty thingy and I love it. The yarn is Savannah from the Fibre Company (now available in a full color range from the shop). It appears to be almost the same color as my scarf…I need to branch out.
Then today Jared Flood released this new triangular shawl pattern! I think I have to make it. I expect to have it at the shop in print version soon, but we haven’t received notice of it being available in print quite yet. I am thinking of using Babs Yet, which we now have in the shop or something in sock weight, like the NFC Luxury Sock that just arrived OR the hank of Dragonfly Fibers Djinni sock that has been “marinating” on my desk for two or three weeks. (For those who don’t know, I “marinate” yarn on my desk to decide whether I REALLY have to take it home…I have this luxury. I realize that you don’t. I am sorry.)
