This. Yarn. Is. EVERYTHING. Not only is it beautiful, it was such a pleasure to work with. And what you can’t tell—no matter how hard I tried to capture it—is that it sparkles. Everything that looks like dust on my photo or weird, stray hairs are shiny, silvery sparkles. Dear cool weather, I am ready.
I’ve been thinking about how to start this post for a while. I like this first paragraph to be something fun, funny, engaging. But I got nothing. Seriously. Instead, look at that yarn. Those colors are spectacular and really soft. Take a moment to gaze upon their color.
After the never-ending Christmas scarf and the knit and knit-again hat, I wanted a simple project using one of my special yarns (those are the expensive or high-quality skeins all in one box that my family has been given special instructions for upon my death). Based on how this particular project is knitting up, apparently I will be the proud owner of my very own crack in time.
Sometimes you knit things and say to yourself, “Hey, I did a pretty good job! Nice work, Me!” Other times you finish a project and say to yourself, “Well, that’s… something.” But every once in a while, you knit something, look at it and say to yourself, “How on Earth did I ever live without you, you gorgeous piece of awesomeness?”
