Last week’s exciting new project was forgotten for yesterday’s exciting new project. Yesterday’s exciting new project is also now a thing of the past! Allow me to introduce today’s EXCITING NEW PROJECT: (I am really that excited!)
The photos don’t begin to capture the amazing colors she used! In the last box, I gravitated to the warm colors, not my typical color palate! This time, it was definitely the cool colors that grabbed me! To say Mom knows her audience is an understatement! I love this yarn!
The pattern is Stephen West’s Dotted Rays. I loved this pattern from the moment it was released. At this point, I’ve actually bought 3 copies of the pattern, the single copy when it was first released and it’s been in two of the compilations I’ve bought as well! I talked about casting it on all the time but I just never got around to it. Clearly I was waiting for this yarn! Yes, it is my third WestKnit on the needles. Yes, it is my third skein of Mom’s hand dye on the needles. Add in that I own 3 copies of the pattern and someone mentioned doing a 3-3-3 closet cleaning project, it all made sense. The universe wanted me to stay up all night an knit!
The only thing that could make my day better is a nap, preferably at 3 pm!
