No longer blue, I have restarted the top with a better quantity of yarn. Also, this yarn is more like the gauge called for in the pattern, so I don't have to modify the pattern....less stitches, too. Too bad for the beautiful shrug (from the cover of the latest Vogue Knitting) I had planned to make in lavender.
Also worked today on a pretty cool Anthropologie-inspired shrug in a brown-grey shade of Malabrigo Chunky. Used up a whole ball of it & gonna finish up tomorrow maybe. I'll wear it with a shawl pin closure.
I have had a life-long addiction to string. Love to bead, sew, tat, knit, crochet, embroider (and cook, but I am not sure how that relates in a string-way). It is the perfect way to avoid the other things I am supposed to be doing with my life (notice I did not mention yard work, shopping, cleaning or studying in the above list).
I also love to hang out with like-minded folks, so I do not have to feel guilty about not doing other stuff.
