Last night, my friend Kristin and I were hanging out, eating her yummy veggie enchiladas and knitting lace. We came to the conclusion that lace projects are not ideal for social knitting.
So this morning I decided to start a very mindless knitting project and I settled on the Gloria Cowl. It’s a lovely pattern and a lot of the cool kids have already made one or several (Ravelry links, all, and one featuring a snood ’round a rather famous neck). I went up to the stash, where I have a shocking amount of lovely sock yarn. And I happened upon some Koigu that I had forgotten that I had. Perfect!
Or maybe not so much. What I loved in the skein, is not so gorgeous knitted up. Or at least, the predominant colors I see are ones that will make me look very unwell.
It should be noted that, in life, the orange-gold-ochre-olive are not so balanced with the blue and purple as they appear here. I have a rule, though, about not frogging projects that are made with two strands held together, because I value my tenuous grasp on sanity. So the only thing to do is finish it, and hope that someone I know will see it and fall in love.
