Ummmmm...ok, they have a point.
One skein of this knitted up faster than you can say "choppin' broccoli" . I finished the skein in 15 minutes, to my surprise, and I have another to add to this scarf. I hope it will make one of my nieces happy this holiday season. Oh yes, I am knitting already for Christmas, but even thinking about it makes me twitchy.
I am also knitting for the upcoming fall weather. I had this epiphany, really, that if I took something out of my stash that I had cast on for months (ahem...years....ahem) ago and, like, knit it, then I would have--get this--a FINISHED PROJECT! So I delved into my stash and considered many pretty, neglected balls of yarn, and found this little number:
This is the Farmer's Market Cardigan, by Connie Chang Chinchio. I always find myself gravitating towards her knitting designs. They look so chic and pretty, yet comfortable. I am knitting this one up in Cascade 220, in a color called "eggplant", but doesn't exactly resemble that. It's black and deep slate blue plied together (eggplant? really?), and I may be sorry at the end that I chose such a dark yarn, that it may not show off the gorgeous cabling in the collar, but 12 inches of it was already knitted up when I got it out of the closet, and I'm goin' for it!
