BUT now this blog is back! Plunging right in--
The days are so drab this time of year and I was craving color! Photo taken from a train window. Colorless and blah!
Ahhhh. . . much better. Colorful--but, not eyeball searing.
I'm knitting a very, very simple garter stitch crescent shape scarf. I had first started a baktus scarf--but the yarn was not happy. After knitting a few rows, I'd make a silly mistake and have to frog it. Or, several times, the stitches jumped off the needles without any provocation. But the last sign of unhappiness was a knot in the yarn--a big knot. Yarn like this doesn't have knots--it's always very smooth without any surprises. So, I read the knot as a stop sign.
The colors are doing the work--not me. So far, I like it. And the yarn seems to like it also. But I'm concerned that, at some point, it will turn muddy. Till then, this is a great travel, sitting on a bus, waiting in the dentist office, binge watching TV series sort of project.
Meanwhile, I have these beauties waiting for me:
Wishing everybody a happy, healthy and yarny new year!
