It's really pretty... simple and easy to knit, and finished I think it will be lovely. A good choice of yarn for the project (and it will clear out my 6 skeins!) And while not as soft as Malabrigo, it is soft and plush, and the colors are soft and muted and don't pool at all. All good things!
I have a single ball of some DK yarn in with similar colors—but a self striping color way—this scarf is likely to be paired with a quick pair of fingerless gloves. And both are going to be gifted, too. (but not till little Christmas in January.)
It's been cold (again and again)-- Last summer was hotter than average, and so far –if December is any indication--this winter will be colder than average. My sweaters are getting used—and I am so thankful for my collection of wool socks! The Peachy socks haven't been touched in a week. It's hard to be interested in these lacy socks.. I find myself looking at and thinking about stranded color work socks--with double and triples layers of wool to keep my toes cozy!
After this wrap, I need to get back to my mystery lace project, (it has a deadline!) and ....
I almost never stop knitting—on a monthy, yearly basis, there hasn't been a time in my life that I haven't knit—but on a daily-- weekly basis—I do take time off.
I read, or cook, or (rarely!) clean or decorate. I stop knitting to sew (haven't really done that, but I keep intending to). I do plan to make a gift bag for my DD's gift—so much more practical than gift wrapping paper.
This past week was a virtually no knitting week.. but I feel the pressure to knit building.
I've made lists, and sketched out some ideas, and the yarn keeps calling out to me...
