Well, today basically disappeared into a black hole of knitting and Harry Potter. Late last night I was starting to feel the tugging tendrils of boredom, so I cast on a Tony the Toybox Monster, also from the Big Book of Knitted Monsters. I’m going to run out of patterns to knit from that book pretty soon. Between the color, which I just pulled out of the acrylic bucket but decided I loved, and the pattern, which hit that perfect sweet spot between easy and interesting, I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. This guy was basically knit in one sitting.
In related news, I’ve been commissioned to knit two more monsters, which will be fun. I’ve filled up a basket on knitpicks and am poised to click to purchase, but can’t quite bring myself to do it, yet. Yarn is much easier for me to purchase on a whim. I’m awful at premeditated purchasing. I’m also torn between starting an Infinity scarf, or a Multnomah shawl. Which ever one I choose will probably be my first summer project.
