Now what?

I have been a Monogamous Knitter for my whole career, mainly, because as an artist, I wanted to see my one of a kind knitted creation, through to the end. Never say never, or so I hear.

The last Finished Object was the “Non Ask”, for a piece that I found intriguing, which is why I Cheated On the project that I was committed to, at that moment. Yes, I know, the reason that so many of you have One Milllllllion project bags is because we seem to be cut from a different cloth and because it is fun to flit from socks to sweater to shawl. I get that and because I knit OTHER PEOPLES DESIGNS, these days, it was easier to be happily led astray.

Today, I finished that first wrap and man, in my humble opinion, is it gorgeous. I know that this was done as a Knit-along, so there are probably oodles of you who made it, but, if you haven’t, I highly recommend it.

Festival of Stitches by Lisa Hannes

See what I mean? You just need three skeins of fingering weight yarn.

I used two different yarns, just because I could, because I appear to be knitting out of my big stash/aka my showroom racks. The light one is the natural Silk/Baby Camel and the other two skeins are Deluxe Sock in Zin ( the dark one) and Blackbewwie. I truly need something to keep me distracted and interested, these days, and this one checked all of the boxes.

As the title of this post implies, I am going through my giant stash of patterns ( yes, I buy them, just like you), trying to fall in love with The Next Thing. I guess that I just need to PICK ONE and get started. This latest Covid lockdown is going to work my last nerve, so for the sake of The Spouse, I had better get on with it.

  1. Oh, gosh! Another fabulous shawl pattern, so we’ll executed that I may have to toss all my other WIPS to start this one. You keep this up & you’ll get a rep as an enabler, just sayin’.
