|Check out my awesome yarn bowl. My sister in law got it for me for my birthday. I love it.|
I’ve been partaking in some transitional crafting. The last time I finished a big project I felt down for little while. So, this time I decided that knitting would be the perfect in between thing to do. It’s doesn’t take a ton of concentration – especially when using someone else’s pattern – and it’s fun to do. And it worked. I’m making the Darkside Cowl out of Noro Retro that I impulsively bought at a Sow’s Ear knit night. Phew – lots of name dropping there. It’s a very fun knit and I’m sure it’ll get lots of wear.
On to destruction:
That’s right. I took the unfinished half of a baby quilt that I had left over and unquilted it. I was never in love with it and I realized why the other night. It’s the colors.
They are great for a baby quilt but these denim blocks don’t really want to be a colorful baby quilt. They’re too regular and tidy (relatively, for me).
They want a neutral color thread. Can you hear them asking? I can. I will need to remove the border and separate at least some of the squares but I think it’s for the best.
In unrelated news, one of my chickens laid her first egg. 🙂
