A New Project!

Today I made a decision. It was not a big decision, but it was a decision regarding knitting and lace. Since my housemate moved out this weekend, my desire to knit has been low. You see, she took most of the furniture with her. I knew she was going to do this, but it was weird to see the living room with no comfy couch and the kitchen with no kitchen table. I should also note that I have been selling my furniture because I can't bring it with me to Florida. As of now I have sold my bed, desk, and drawers. So as you can see, there are no real comfy spots to knit in my house.

Today, however, things changed. Today, I ran out of clean and respectable work clothes. What is a girl to do except go to the laundromat and bring her knitting with her? After careful thought (who am I kidding? I made this decision while stuffing dirty clothes into a laundry bag), I decided to use a hank of Silky Wool to make a Fan and Feather scarf. I am pretty excited, because this is a scarf that I can wear in FLORIDA! It is decorative and provides the perfect amount of warmth. I am a bit disappointed though, because I think I am going to have to frog it and start again. I used a size 9 needle and I think I need to go down a couple of sizes, because the YOs seem a bit too big. I am still going to do a shawl for my official Amazing Lace teammate, but this is a nice "SAK is moving in a week and is totally crazed" project. My mind can only handle a four row repeat pattern at the moment.

  1. Good decision to have a number of lace projects in process - you never know what the circumstances are going to be. Knitting Icarus in the laundromat just doesn't work!

  2. It's coming along nicely! And from a Floridian, yeah, that's a scarf you can wear here! :-)
