I’ve gotten back into my knitting again. I guess it is finally not so hot that the thought of holding yarn in my lap isn’t making me want to break out into sweat. I think it is also because I’m finding myself sitting at the dance studio three afternoons a week. And, it’s too noisy to read, so knitting is perfect. I can relax, knit a few rows, and not pay attention to all the maniac kids who are waiting for their siblings to finish their dance classes.
I knit a few washcloths to get myself back into the groove:
And now I’m moving on to more ambitious projects.
I’m making this one – although the center will not be the same yarn, the one I have is similar. I love the laciness combined with the fuzzy softness at the end. The fuzzy yarn is giving me a fit right now, but I’m going to master it.
Next, I’ll make this scarf:
But mine is going to be a deep purple. Same sequined yarn (purple) at the ends, but a darker alpaca/bamboo purple yarn in the middle. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
And, then? I think maybe I’ll get real crazy and try to make a shawl. Something to keep myself warm in church.
I know. I like to live dangerously.

Love the blue scarf. It’s so unique.
I’m glad you are back to knitting! I find knitting very relaxing–partly because I’ve done anything complicated, but also the feel of the yearn is very soothing.
Yes, there is something about the tactile nature of the craft that is very soothing to me. Great stress reliever.
Thank you for stopping by!
I think so. It is actually closer to periwinkle, but these pictures were taken with my phone so they are not that good.
