Well, that is a ridiculous statement, I realize. But, after taking a month long break, and not being able to knit much a day (for now), it's not so ridiculous. This weekend I was able to spend a little time knitting, carefully. The poor sock had to go into hibernation, Sprössling grew slightly, and a new project (larger needles!) started its journey.
As soon as I saw it Que Sera, by Kirsten Kapur, made my eyebrows pop up with pleasure. A new summer weight cardigan had been on my mind, but the perfect pattern had not been found. Plus, 8 skeins of Cotton Fleece could be heard calling from the stash. The color is a little out of the ordinary for me (the color in the above photo sucks), but about a year ago, the depth of this black/brown/green yarn spoke right out loud and, well, what's a grrl to do? (The color in the photo on the right may be more true.)
My intent is to keep blogging as often as the ideas come and I appreciate your comments of encouragement. I will do all I can to fix the arm/shoulder problem so I can "knit on, with confidence and hope, through all crises", as well as through the best of times.
