We're on the other side of the holiday, and I have mixed feelings. On one hand, it's liberating. I don't have to focus any more attention on holiday preparations.
On the other hand, I have to face all the work I let slide while I was getting ready for the holiday. I see a mountain of paperwork and plenty of dyeing in my weekend forecast.
Before I get back to work, I've cut myself some slack for a couple days. Like little kids who have been forced to sit still for too long, I have a long list of new knitting projects waiting to be set free.
I'm anticipating a rapid succession of new projects on the needles.
First up is a sweater. I've been considering two or three patterns but can't seem to pick one. Since I can't make up my mind, I've switched my attention to the yarn.
Maybe if I do a little swatching first, all will be revealed.
This week's color inspiration mirrors my swatch and the season.
