First I wanted to. Then I didn't want to. But I never forgot about it either. A trip to Lila & Claudine's was all the inspiration I needed to make up my mind: it's time to learn to knit.
The yarn that tipped the scales is this alpaca-mohair blend in shades of green, blue and grey. It's super uneven, to hide any beginner flaws, and I really wanted something that would feel amazing every time I touched it.
I'm on the six-month plan for this scarf. No rush, lots of other irons in the fire. I'm appreciating a project that is completely unrelated to my creative "work" and a change of pace from the other ways I use my hands. (Although with the way it's snowing today, I may just have to hurry a bit.)
