When I couldn’t find the yarn I wanted for the next project, I eventually remembered that it is yellow month in Project Spectrum world, and I do have a yellow blankie on the needles… So, grown up and moved across town Neighbor Guy and his bride will get a yellow blankie for their baby… if I finish it this time. (Very old photo… I’m well past halfway!) With all the rain and clouds of late, it’s actually quite cheery to knit on something so sunny.
In other knitting news, I finished a project. I’ve finished the knitting part of two other projects, but one needs to be blocked and another needs to be blocked, sewn, and then have a waist band added, so don’t hold your breath on those finished object reports, but despite taking 10 months to finish this scarf, it’s a quick, easy project.
Pattern: None, really. I saw the shop sample at Dog House Yarns last year, asked Rosanne how many stitches she cast on, and then decided I liked 18 stitches and gartered away.
Yarn: Universal Spice Berry in Herbes de Provence. (Love a good colorway name!) I used roughly a ball and a half to get about 60 inches of length.
Needles: US #11 straights.
Verdict: I have 1.5 balls left in this color and 3 more in another colorway, so there will be more very mindless firehouse knitting for Christmas happening.
While I’m talking about Dog House Yarns, anyone going to the spinning retreat later this month?
