I lost my knitting mojo for a couple of years. The only reason I finished those legwarmers were because I was cleaning and came across my dusty knitting basket and figured I could finish the last 4 rows and a cast off.
But now I've been knitting every day for a week. In fact, I've been itching to get the needles in my hands. Strange, huh? I ripped back this mitten because the decreases at the top were leaving holes that I didn't like. Now I've started again in the same yarn with the Templeton Mittens pattern (ravelry link). I'm knitting with sport yarn on size 0 needles. That makes the mitten extra thick and narrow and squeezy. I love how it is turning out.
But, the real reason that I've caught the knitting bug again is this:
Aren't those colors to die for? I've just found Madelinetosh yarn and I may never buy another yarn again. This Tosh Marino Light is absolutely amazing. It will become a delicious stripey shawl. Rest assured, I'll post photos when I have a good start on the shawl.
Happy winter crafting to you!
