I got another wild hair to cake up a bunch of yarn. I think this might be the leading edge of a fit of “cast-on-itis”. But hey, I have to go where the knitting mojo takes me.
The project started with six skeins of yarn, some lemonade and the Down Cellar Studio podcast in my ear buds.
I ended the afternoon with nine skeins of yarn and many dream knitting projects I can’t wait to cast on. I hope to turn this pile of yarn into:
- Two worsted weight hats with my Shepherd’s Mill yarn
- A DK hat specifically picked out/requested by my mom
- Three skeins of green yarn that I will plan another Into The Light
- Three skeins of pink yarn for a third Into The Light
That is A LOT of knitting. And I’m heading into busy accounting/audit season at work so my energy and free time about to be sucked up. But maybe if the yarn is ready and waiting I’ll have a better chance to keep projects going?
Thinking of the possibilities is the best part!
Sometimes you’ve just got to plan a project rather than dive in – unlike me who dives in too often and ends up with more mistakes than are really necessary (thinking about not doing tension squares, not reading patterns properly, etc …). Looking forward to seeing what those neat balls turn into!
