I was feeling indecisive again, but really missed knitting. I did a few rows of my monster blanket, but really I wasn't feeling it.

So I began to look for the frogged yarn that was once Granlibakken. I could not find it. I have looked in all the usual places, including the office. I have also looked in some unusual places ... nothing. Now, I was not sure if I wanted to knit this right away, but because I cannot find it, I really want to knit it. Now, I have yarn. I probably have another set of US6 needles I have the pattern already printed out. But I want to know where that bag is.

I think I've fretted a total of 3 days.

I finally cast something on. I have been wanting to make A Lady something with this emerladish green Tosh Vintage. The colorway is actually, "Forestry". I had one hank.  One for me, One for Little Snoopy and one for A Lady. A Lady doesn't knit ... (so 2 to knit for me!)

I know 1 hank, it's a purchasing problem I have.Good for a combination but alone? Hat? Handwarmers? I decided to do The Downton Cowl again. As you can see I haven't gotten very far. The sad part is, I was knitting the tired knit and should've put it down a few rows back, but kept going ... I kept going incorrectly and now, have to back it out a couple hundred stitches to see where I went wrong.

That's just how I knit. It's not pretty, it's not fast, but it's pretty amazing that I still love it so much. Madelinetosh is so dreamy. I'd like to finish this by the end of the week. Just because.

But you know, "no promises in love." And that's how this yarn makes me feel :)

unlike that bad mean sock yarn that is hiding from me. ugh!


  1. Even though you had the frustrating experience of making a mistake in your knitting, somehow knitting with Madtosh makes it all bearable, right?

  2. Hmmmm let play Medium...

    I see a hot dog. Is the yarn in the fridge? near a hot dog?
    Wait wait the name WIlliam is coming to me....
    is your yarn a ROYAL pain.

    ha haa thanks for obliging me

  3. You may have special powers! I couldn't find the hotdogs in the fridge this morning. (hot dog rolls for lunch) But they were there (my husband found them). Near the ginger ... see that? See that GINGE - ERR? ha!

    No yarn though
