Sunday greetings to you. What are you up to today?
I feel like my YOP1617 post is late. I was going to work on it last night but I was exhausted. All week I’ve had sinus headaches when I usually only have two a month. This morning my head was pounding so E brought me some Advil and water and then I crashed back out.
Thank you for expressing your two cents in last Sunday’s YOP post. BTW, with this new WP theme, Spun, I believe you have to click on the little conversation bubble located at the end of the post to the right to leave a comment; I hope that’s not too much trouble. The last theme seemed to have given you issues so I switched. I really like this one because I was tired of seeing my mouth catching flies from the last podcast and I love the subtle colors and eye-catchy circles of a photo from each post.
So I’ve put away Idlewood. I really do love that plum, but I’m kind of sick of it. I will probably frog it all and use the yarn for something else. I told Kathy of Irisheyesknitters I was all trolling for yarn one night and stalked Knit Picks City Tweed a bit because there was a sale going on. However, I refrained, yanking back my own collar, because when the time comes for me to try that pattern for a third time, I want to have the pleasure of shopping for yarn for it right then and there.
Moving on led me to Purl Soho’s Color Tipped Scarf. I dug around my stash and was inspired by Dishfunctional Designs’ color palette I had found on Pinterest. Each night I’ve dedicated time to my scarf:
I named the project, “Wool & Company” because each skein has wool in it. The Yarn A – Spud & Chloe Sweater (wool + cotton) in Moonlight – section is complete! I will be connecting Cascade Highland (wool + alpaca) in Honey next which will be the main portion of the scarf. That deep purple you see in the bottom, right-hand corner is Plymouth Yarn Worsted Merino Superwash Solids and will be the other color tip of the scarf. This is an easy pattern for beginners and a mindless one for veteran knitters.
Well I’m off to make more tea and get some fibery work done. Have a relaxing and fun Sunday. TTYL!
