I ripped it. I ripped it all the way back to the beginning. I am telling myself that I will be happier this way. As a way of insuring this outcome, immediately after ripping it, I went online and ordered some yarn! you know what? I do feel better – not only about this project, but also about my upcoming one. Medicinal fiber purchases – they really do work!
I can’t remember if I told you guys but my next project is going to be the Hex Coat from Knitting Nature. When I was ordering yarn from Webs, I ordered Lopi Lite for this project. It arrived sometime last week and was exactly as pictured. The problem is – it is almost the exact color of the Araucania yarn I am using right now. For this past week, I have been trying to convince myself it really isn’t a problem, that the projects are different enough that such similar yarns won’t be noticeable, that if I seem to like this color it’s all okay …….
But the truth of the matter is, I like the color of the sweater in the book. I was feeling sorry enough for myself over that ripping to make pressing the ‘add to cart’ button seem okay. If I ever finish this % sweater, you shall be seeing some knitting of the Hex Coat in Celery Heather. I love food names.
Speaking of love, I forgot to show you guys my Valentine from Cara. All the way from Big Sur and at considerable risk to life and limb. She even has Georgie involved – but I will let her tell you the story.
