I’ve had this yarn for nearly two years (Taria Tweed from Plymouth, a lovely wool, silk & llama blend!) I wound it at the shop before it even came home with me.
I took myself on a birthday yarn buying spree but I tried to buy with intent, instead of the usual impulse shopping. I picked the pattern and even found someone who had used the same yarn on Ravelry. Muh-Muhs, it hit all the right notes, half circle shape, garter stitch, stripes, only a tiny bit of lace.
It only took me until May to set up my ravelry page and another 3 months after that to actually cast it on. I finally did it though. I was having an ‘I don’t have anything to knit moment’. It’s worse than an ‘I don’t have anything to wear’ while standing in a closet full of clothes moment. And so…
I still don’t have anything to knit though. I may have to start another sweater this week. I did swatch for two pre-Olympics, after all. It’s only Wednesday…anything can happen!
