Sometimes when one is more in the destashing stage, it's a thrill to get a skein of yarn in the mail that really floats your boat. I did a trade and got this lovely merino-silk lace weight from No Two Snowflakes. This of course assumes that I will finish my current lace project(s) to be able to start a new one. This is certainly inspiration.
Forever ago, I started a Norwegian sweater. I got the entire body done. (This was the design your own Norwegian sweater from Donna's Ethnic Knitting Discovery book) Then a year passed. I realized that I was not going to finish this sweater because I didnt' feel inspired to wear it. I've changed my sweater style and am going to thinner layers instead of heavy. My colorwork sweater there was DK weight and quite a lump-o-wool. Last week I decided to make it into a felted totebag. Here is the "before" shot and I will post the "after" shot when I have some handles on it and line it.Yesterday for Sunday knit together we went to Gaby's and saw my 2 year old boyfriend.
Paula finished her latest sweater and modeled it for us. A good time was had by all, but especially me.
