Rainbows: YAAAARRRNNN!!!

August 18, 2010

Look what arrived in my mailbox today!

Yarn Love Marianne Dashwood in Pizzaz, Saffron, Candied Lemon, Vintner Green, Solstice and Frosted Mulberry. Just look at that beautiful rainbow!

Perfect timing, too, as I’m leaving tomorrow on vacation. I am basically bored silly with endless garter stitch (it is still not finished, although it’s getting closer*), so I’m excited to bring this with me and work on knitting my sample!

*I’ve discovered that while endless garter stitch is EASY and FAST, it’s also challenging for me – because there are no forced stopping points (ie, stopping to check the pattern, or measure, or see if it’s turning out properly), I knit and knit and knit without any breaks, so I’ve been suffering a bit from a recurring repetitive strain injury I’m prone to. Hopefully a long weekend away will give me the break I need to finish that project!
