Internet access going in and out, tons of work, and a pretty social weekend make for pretty bad blogging. And not a lot of knitting. Today I had a fabulous Easter lunch at Valentina’s (man, can that girl cook) but although many knitting magazines were perused and talk of knitting was abound, not a stitch took place. I think I really need a Drafty Table session this week.
But I made an executive decision the other day. Since Lisette’s sleeves were going so slowly due to my schedule, and because even if I kept plugging away I’d end up with a long sleeved, wool, rather dark colored sweater when I’m done, I decided to put her back in the UFO pile. Oh, she’ll get done, but right now there’s other things I feel I’d get more use out of. Like my half done Clapotis for instance. I picked that back up this week and I think I can get it done soon. Oh, but I’m distracted, and here’s why.
Yes, You’ve seen this many times before out there in Blogland. It’s the Rebecca mohair wrap. Everyone is making it. I’m not one to usually jump on the “everyone is doing it” bandwagon (exceptions: see, Clapotis, and the Ribby Cardi) but, I already had the exact yarn (same color, even) in my stash, and it’s cute. I bought the yarn to make another Rebecca wrap but decided along the way that it really wasn’t practical and wouldn’t get much wear. THIS, I will wear. And I will wave hello to all the other knitters as I pass them wearing the same thing.
