Variety is the spice of life . . . and knitting. I always have several knitting projects in progress. That way I don't have to lug a worsted weight sweater to the beach, and it keeps things interesting.
The other day I noticed that all my focus projects right now are fingering weight. While I dearly love fingering, I felt I needed a little more balance. And so I started this.
Penny had been hovering near the top of my queue for a while, so it feels good to finally have it on the needles. I'm working with Edna Extra, colorway Tide Pool.
Knitting with heavier weight yarn can be a bonus. The inches are adding up quickly. I like this kind of variety.
