I broke down and bought the Artyarns Taj Mahal Shawl kit. Yes, I know. Expensive as hell. But it is so pretty. Meanwhile I am working on Lilli Pilli wrap in Tosh Merino light. My white isn’t quite as white as I wanted it to be, but I think it will be pretty. I’m tempted to join it into an Infinity Scarf. I do have to say that endless rows of garter stitch without any break are boring.
Also I found a cool article on scarf patterns. 🙂 Not sure what to knit out of there. I’m biased toward bright colors and gradients.
While I was cleaning today – by the way, today is one of those weird days when I can’t seem to sit down for five minutes, because minor stuff just keeps happening – I found a bunch of bulky, very soft yarn in white, grey, and charcoal. There is enough for a scarf and I really do need to make it into a scarf because it’s loose in balls of various sizes, so I suppose something with stripes of varying width. If I don’t knit it up, it will go to waste, because I will just keep shuffling it from spot to spot until it felts on its own.
How are your projects going? What are your favorite knitting needles? Bamboo, steel, wood, any particular brand?
