After a busy morning, I settled down and started to unpack some of my stash. It is winter here, and colder, which means I “need” to be creative. I am working on some goodies for a swap buddy, but can only show those in a little bit, once the package has safely reached its far away destination.
So I started to look at the yarns I am thinking about using, and unpacked them. It seems I am in the mood for “Fall” or “Winter”. The colours are definitely reminding me of Fall and turning leaves.
I decided on the Manos Maxima (the really dark Caravan) and the Arequipa, which very much reminds me of the turning of leaves in Autumn. I will be looking out for patterns soon, am thinking of a Beanie in the Maxima and a scarf in the Arequipa.
I started the shawl, and after a few pattern repeats noticed a small mistake. :-) You guessed it, I ripped it out and restarted. It is going much better and I am remembering the pattern easier as I make progress.
