Wow. It's April! And I have only one FO to show for 2011, thus far. The Honey Cowl.
I was in love with this pattern while knitting it. I mean, it really is comfort knitting at its best. Interesting enough to stick with, mindless enough to have a good conversation or watch a movie. And it kept going, and going, and going....I used two full skeins of Madelinetosh DK--colorway Lichen, on #8 needles.
I thought it was going to be a bit longer when draped as a single wrap, so next time I might just got up a needle size. The colors are fun, but the next one (yes, already planning a second!) will not be variegated. I don't have much to pair this with. But that's ok, we all need a "signature" piece every so often, don't we?
My "no new yarn" in 2011 resolution has remained in full force and effect, a fact of which I am immensely proud (and honestly, a little surprised). That being said, I haven't been knitting at all. We all go in and out of our knitting mojo, though, right? I always get worried when it happens for this long, though (it's been roundabout two months). Will it come back? What if it doesn't? What the hell am I going to do with all this yarn and these needles and this spinning wheel and this FIBER?!?!?! *sigh*
With spring around the corner (and I say that because it's been in the FORTIES this week) I think I'll be casting on (even though I shouldn't, with so many WIP's on the needles) for a two-tone shawl out of skeins I have been eyeing for months. Maybe some knitting eye candy will thrust me back into my knitting mojo.
Time will tell.
