I've been sidelining sewing the last few months because I've started knitting again! My mom first taught me when I was a kid and I will take up the needles and knit a scarf every few years. That was the extent of my skills. Knit, purl, rectangle shape.
My eyes were opened this summer and I discovered the lovely world of yarn! Especially, speckled merino. It's almost as satisfying as shopping for fabric. MadTosh is currently my favorite brand of yarn. All Wound Up in Edmonds is my favorite local yarn shop (LYS).
I have started branching out and actually following patterns and have started slow knitting projects like a sweater and now I'm kind of obsessed with doing stranded colorwork. A friend told me that I need to start doing double-sided knitting next, so I'll be looking for a cute pattern for a new project.
It took a really long time, but I finally buckled down and finished this. The next goldwork piece will probably be a butterfly.
Crafting and creating keeps me sane and happy. Previous projects listed here.
