Oh, the random places (and by places I mean projects) my knitting takes me.
It started with ‘Joanquil’ Ladies’ Diagonal Lace Top, which was not on my radar until I put it on while at work (it was chilly). Then suddenly I just HAD to knit it. (Doe anyone else think of Game of Thrones when they read the name Joanquil?).
I finished that in a week, after all, it’s a cropped vest. It took only four skeins of Silk Garden (Aran: 45% Mohair, 45% Silk, 10% Wool, 110 yards).
Then we got in Malabrigo Rasta (Super Bulky: 100% Merino, 90 yards) at work. This reminded me that I had Rasta in the Abril colorway tucked away at home in my stash.
This 1 skein pattern took under an hour to knit, literally.
I timed myself out of curiosity. No one knows how to have fun like me.
There is still a colorway at the shop that sings to me daily. Purple Mystery. I knit a CustomFit sweater in this colorway and I have a scarf in this colorway. You would think that was enough. I don’t know if I can hold out. The pressure is mounting. It’s my perfect purple. Sigh. We will see.
Having scratched this itch, I was able to contentedly return to my deadline knitting. Two more projects are almost done, leaving two deadline projects to go. Freedom! What will I knit next?
