I feel the start of a new project coming on. This feeling has been percolating for a while now. I look at patterns, take a break for a day or two, repeat. If I come back to the same pattern over and over, I take that as a sign it's meant to be.
I'm closing in on the pattern. Oh wait, I still have to dye yarn. I might not be starting the project as soon as I had hoped. While I'm waiting for all the pieces of the new project to come together, I spent a little time sampling a new yarn.
I used this blend for a custom order a few months ago, so I decided to explore the possibilities. I dyed several samples and cast on. Knitting a swatch with a new yarn is always a relaxing exercise. There's more sampling to do, but so far I love the way this knits up.
Knitting with silk . . . I'm not complaining.
