I'd lost the blogging mojo for a while but found the knitting mojo to replace it . I 've been suffering with a severe case of startitis and couldn't wait to cast on new projects before finishing the ones in progress. Usually this spells disaster with a plethora of unfinished knits in the knitting corner . Not this time , things are actually getting done , will wonders never cease !
The first one is a scarf I call Maine Blue , not because it's a blue ( as in sad ) project but because the yarn and pattern were bought in Maine on our recent visit . It reminds me of the colours of the ocean and sky on a beautiful day spent at the beach . An good image to keep in mind on a snowy winter day . The details are here on my ravelry page .
Second up is a stash buster . I've had some Noro Kureyon in the stash since 2004 . I'd bought some on impulse mostly because of the gorgeous colours . I came across 4 balls of 2 different but somewhat similar colourways . I'd cast on simply to see how the colours would work out and before I knew it I had a completed scarf . I don't have a recipient in mind , it'll be going into the gift basket . It'll need a good soak in a wool wash to soften up the scratchiness of the Noro . I wouldn't want to gift it as is . So the yarn is technically out of one stash but into another . Oh well ....
There is one more finished knit and two in progress to show but I'll save those for another day . Back to the knitting before the mojo disappears !
