Here we are at Unraveled Wednesday and yup - there has been unraveling this week for sure.
Gulp! No more Hellebore Hitchhiker. I realized I was no longer loving this and looking back at what I had knit, there were some obvious "problems." Spots where I had dropped a stitch and not picked it up properly and as tiny as those spots were, I knew they would stand out for me. So poof! The other day I completely unwound it.
The Hellebore yarn is just so beautiful and I will use it still for a shawl, but a different pattern. I'm in the midst of reviewing options, but believe I have picked out Zilver as a good option. Time will tell.
There will be more unraveling today as I un-do the raspberry colored sweater I started the other year. Not feeling the love, you know? I'll figure out something for that yarn...again too pretty to let it just sit and marinate a bit (it's been marinating in a project bag for some time now - lol).
I also caked up two skeins of yarn for some socks because you always need to have socks on the needles, right?
On the right is "Aspen" by Less Traveled Yarn. This is a skein I bought the other week when Dee and I were at Purls of Wisdom in Kimberton. On the left is "Hera's Peacock" a Flocksock Fingering by Holiday Yarns. I have no clue when or where I bought that! Patterns have yet to be decided upon, but I will try to figure that out today. Aiming towards something lacy in the blue and something more plain in the Aspen.
Fletch and I are continuing to read (after dinner) "South Moon Under" by Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and enjoying it very much. I'm waiting for a few books on Overdrive to come in.
I'm home today and it should be a fairly easy work day. Hoping to get a short walk in at lunch time. Tomorrow will be a full day at the office. I'd best set my alarm, because it will be back to my pre-Covid days of getting in by 7:15 or so. My bosses will all be in for a meeting that starts at 8 and then we have the retirement luncheon for my peer who is retiring at the end of the month. I was going to say I was jealous/envious of her retiring, but my new schedule of (primarily) working from home is great and I'm really enjoying it. I will stick it out for a bit longer!
As usual, linking up with Kat for Unraveled Wednesday. Head on over to her place to see what she and others are making and reading!
