The other day I was feeling tired, hormonal and cranky. So I decided to take a trip to Imagiknit for a pick-me-up. I’d had a 10 percent off card in my wallet for months and I figured it was time to use it. Here’s what I got:
I just discovered Never Not Knitting’s podcast and blog. She has lovely photos and projects. Through her, I discovered the Red Rose pattern. Since I’m on a bit of a hat kick, I thought I might try it. If I change my mind, Malabrigo Silky Merino knits up into a lovely scarf.
I also got this:
Since I am looking at my pattern books in a new light, I was drawn to Brooklyn Tweed’s Beaumont Tam. (As with Nutmeg, if I decide not to knit the garments I first liked in the book, I’ve still gotten use out of the book by knitting some hat projects.) I’ve never tried this yarn before, but I think it’ll work great. It doesn’t have the mohair of the worsted and bulky Lamb’s Pride, so I don’t think it’ll be itchy.
