To Make or Not to Make

sheep pillow - Purl Soho

Either way, this sheep pillow is too fun.

Here’s the big question: Will a project’s humor/joy/fun be everlasting enough to be commensurate to the effort? You never know at the beginning. For me, it depends on what’s in the stash; there’s an inexplicable joy in putting previously undesignated yarn to use. And if the project has a home before it’s started, well, that pretty much seals the deal. Like the year I knit 36 little pieces of coal for holiday gifts. Great response – only two people didn’t get it, and I realized those friendships were too lopsided to salvage. I think they did too. A little galvanizing moment worth the effort.

 

Decisions, Decisions

Good thing I live where winter is always cold enough to need a good scarf.

Next up — the Tunisian Crochet Scarf or the Diagonal Twist Scarf?

Or should I finish one of those other projects already on the needles. . .

Finally Fini

Between all the unplanned things of life and a sprained wrist to boot, it took me a year – a year! – to knit a scarf. Now it is done and it is lovely.

We’ve been together through so much, my fuzzy warm friend, that I’m having a hard time packing you up and mailing you off even if your home is with a good friend.

yarn: a soft and lovely merino of unrecalled origin
