I needed something a little easier to work on, so I knit a shawlette for my Downton Abbey swap partner. It was single knit on sport weight and came out fine. I'm not sure she's going to like the color, though. I plan to make a project bag, but the fabric appears to have been snowed in somewhere between here and North Carolina. I should be working on a pair of mitts for her, but I'm not sure about the pattern. I'll think about this before taking more action.
I wanted to work on something that wasn't laceweight and wasn't Downton. I picked up the doubleknit sheep pillow pattern I got from the designer. It is every bit as slow as the Doctor scarf and it's sport weight. I like it, I'll finish it at some point, but it's going s l o w l y. Distraction time again.
Now I've got a bunch of projects and no motivation to work on any of them, so I'm back on the Internet. The yarn I ordered for my Downton partner has arrived and I don't know if she'll like it or not. Do I order more yarn? Can I find another pattern to do for her?
No, what I find is that Frivolite Handcrafts has come up with another doubleknit scarf. Be still my nerdy little Browncoat heart, the pattern makes me do a happy dance. It is inspired by the Fruity Oaty Bar commercial in Serenity. I love the Fruity Oaty Bar commercial. I sing the Fruity Oaty Bar song. I have had yarn inspired by it. I have a Fruity Oaty Bar lunch box. I've toyed with the idea of crocheting the Fruity Oaty Bar girls. I want to drop everything and see if the dyer who did the yarn I had before will dye some for me to do this.
I'll be good instead. I'll make some coffee, dig up the yarn for the mitts pattern I already have, and see if I can actually finish something. Well, maybe I'll look for that Fruity Oaty yarn first. I don't have to buy it right now, do I?
