That’s my New Year’s resolution. I’ve been sort of slogging around, not too motivated about a resolution for 2013 until today. It was below freezing for three days when I needed to go to the city yesterday and decided to dress up a little with my alpaca yarn, hand knitted lace shawl.
I discovered a hole in it. %#$%. Most of today has been spent looking for the extra skein of yarn that was used to knit the shawl and I’ve yet to find it. But – in searching I have found all kinds of beautiful yarns that have been squirreled away under the work table, in the corner, and wherever else one squirrels away yarn.
Here’s the shawl that needs repair:
I’d show you the hole but it’s held together with a big safety pin so that it doesn’t unravel further. All the yarn has been “organized” now. Meaning it’s all dumped into a big plastic tub. And a basket. And a big plastic bag.
This is all the sock yarn and a pair that is almost finished.
And this is yarn that just arrived Monday,
to make this scarf with a Classic Elite pattern. That’s the next project.
I shall continue to look for the white alpaca shawl yarn and will probably find it when I’m looking for something else. And, I’ll unsubscribe from the yarn site which tempts me. As I’ve stirred through the yarn I’ve gotten inspired with combinations and ideas for more projects. Maybe I’ll take a little rest from quilting. HA!
