Joining Ginny for the Yarn Along.
It took a good deal of perseverance to get through this last project; I just was not motivated. My head was filled with visions of the many other projects for which I wanted to cast on, but I did it and I am pretty pleased with the result. The soaker turned out a bit big so I felted it down and love how the the wool bloomed – it’s soft and cozy and very pretty. Next I’ll block the hat and then hopefully the mama I’m swapping with will get a lot of good out of the set in her photography work. Ravelry notes here (diaper cover) and here (hat).
After that was done, I was finally able to switch up the knitting and I’m now feeling much more inspired. I cranked out these sweet, super fast washcloths for the girls for Valentine’s Day and started a rainbow Tulip Sweater for Aurelia, my Ravellenic Games project, one that will not only match her blanket but that also shows solidarity for those discriminated against by the host country of the Olympic Games.
Once I’m done with that or at times where I need mindless knitting, I’m going to work heavily on the blanket. One year will be here before we know it and I very much want it done by then.
