It’s funny how a little change in the weather increases my knitting time. I’d actually forgotten that I’d started a new project this summer prior to starting the sweater until a chill in the air reminded me that winter is coming.
I have mittens and a hat that I finished last winter, but I hadn’t gotten to the matching scarf.
The pattern is Monkey Bread, and I’m knitting the infinity variation which explains the contrasting yarn at the beginning. The yarn (Great Northern Yarns Mink-Cashmere) is fluffy and soft, but the pattern is very repetitive so I loose interest after a few rows of knitting and switch to another project. So it’s going to take a while! Of course, I think if I found just the right TV show or movie to watch, I could make some rapid progress. We’re due a warm-up this week, but if it gets cold again that might spur the needles on.
In the meantime, it’s nice to be back to the knitting!
