Dear Knitting Mojo –
Once upon a time, there was nothing like socks. Knitting socks made my heart sing.
Then, we fell out of sock love, but it was okay, because I was testing my knitting wings and taking on lace, cardigans and more. But earlier this summer, you packed up and moved away. There was no knitting joy in podunk.
I couldn’t resist the Plymouth Grass in this green at Dog House Yarns & More. So much so, I cast on. More progress was made last night. I meant to knit a couple of rows and go to bed, but Mojo, you are powerful, and I had trouble stopping. (Pattern: Buttercup, shown in this post.)
Mojo you are strong when you lock into a particular project type, so I actually had to be talked into just matching some stashed Blue Sky Cotton in a soft red and Lutea for another day…
And Mojo is taking the blame for a sweater’s worth of Spud and Chloe Sweater coming home with me from Pins & Needles’ going out of business sale.
It’s going to grow up to become the Tea Party Cardi. I bought that at Knitting Addiction last time we were at the beach.
So Mojo, I just have one favor to ask… Please stick with me through these projects, and on into the stuff I want to finish for Christmas.
Speaking of the beach… I hope Earl will ease up, change course a bit or something. I’d really rather that he not hit the Outer Banks at all. Those dunes are so fragile…
