Yes, I cast on a new project last night. And no, I'm not at all embarrassed about it. And yes, I love the idea of a new project because I love my yarn clubs and last year my enthusiasm for my yarn clubs got all bashed around when I was in the midst of my time of turmoil...so...I decided I'm rebooting yarn club enthusiasm in 2015. So, here's #1:
Outlander, Among Friends. You got the pics yesterday of the package. Last night I started one of the suggested projects, the Pedestrian Crossing Cowl.
And let me tell you that it is a really nice pattern. 2 row repeat, super easy and the yarn? Oh my...the yarn is lovely. So soft, so squishy, so beautifully dyed. I'm a happy girl and so are my hands in working with this.
A couple of interesting things:
Yesterday at work I was enamored of the color brown, so of course, working with this color has made me super happy.
I think I'll use blue buttons to have it match my eyes a little.
Those needles are my Marblz Interchangeable set. I still love them and think they may be my favorite. I'm keen on the Karbonz, but they are so pointy that I split my yarn to death...these are just the right kind of tip for me, and I love the acrylic...who would have thought I'd ever say that after my initial love of Addi's...
And finally: I BELIEVE I will be wearing this thing to work on Saturday. I probably won't, but I BELIEVE (at least for now)...so back to knitting and watching the next episode of Downton.
