I hear voices

Lately I would look at yarn and see full garments. I remember when I looked at a ball or skein and think “that would make a cute hat or scarf…”. Not anymore. Now I always envision full garments like a sweater, a vest or even a dress. Does this mean I have graduated from a beginner’s way of thinking to an intermediate student who’s not afraid to be challenged? Seriously. The yarn speaks to me. Especially if it’s the good and luscious stuff. The kind of yarn you can’t stop touching or admiring or dream about being wrapped in or…..you know what I mean.

I opened my yarn closet doors and thought the first thing that catches my eye will be my next project for myself. This is the one that screamed out “KNIT ME!”:

The red just popped out from behind all the other muted colours. So I grabbed it and started knitting at 1am. It’s nice and chunky so hopefully I’ll be done soon. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.

Until then….keep your ears and minds open 😉

    This has happened to me too. I looked at my stash and realized I didn’t have many choices for large items. I had bought yarn with the “I’ll just get a few balls” mentality and it left me without sweater yarn. Now that I have changed that the stash is starting to become to big for its storage. But I’m happy, and soon I will have two new sweaters =)

    That is going to be cute on you. You MUST hurry and finish it so that I may live vicariously through you.

    I have that yarn! I made a few items (scarves, funnily enough) out of it, and have about a ball and a half yet. I really want to make something nice – the red and the orange are so lovely….but I can’t figure out what. 🙂
