http://mococo.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-file-manager/lib/php/connector.minimal.php i was having trouble
blindfold focusing on just one idea (this often happens to me), so
http://onewish4u.com/products-page/ i cast on for three new things at once
(and no, this is so not the first time i’ve done that either).
first up was new fingerless mitts
in malabrigo mecha.
the rich blueberry color (called prussia blue)
drew me right in, but…
easy enough to rip back, but my motivation veered
onto new project #2.
this is gorgeous yarn from a swap box.
it’s bare naked wools ‘better breakfast fingering’ in mocha.
now, you know that usually ‘fingering weight’ and i are not pals,
but this stuff knits up beautifully on bigger needles
and i was definitely more motivated
to do this, than to undo and redo the longer fingerless glove above.
yes, it does.
but, i got to the crown decreases and lost steam.
i was so enjoying just knitting in the round
and around and around.
my head wasn’t up to the math of the crown shaping, cue project #3.
i’ve been on a kick about octopoli (a plural of octopus).
my friend joan loaned me a book and
i’m just fascinated.
therefore, my third new project is inspired by tentacles.
you might not be able to see the inspiration when it’s done,
but i sure will.
every idea comes from somewhere
and no matter what this ends up like, i’ll know exactly where it started in my head.the yarn is long island worsted in marsala
(i know that the bag says indigo dragonfly.
new and exciting stuff from them is coming later on).
for now, i’m knitting away on the worsted
with the deep lair of the octopus
on my mind,
and wondering how i’m going to regain the motivation
to finish the first two things i started.
