And while I've been so caught up in said pattern, I need a little something new to work on so I don't just sit stagnant with no knitting in my life. I need to pull the trigger on a new project, give myself a deadline, and get started.
Enter: Easter outfits.
I have this lovely little number for Elise to wear on Easter, and although the weather looks like it might be quite nice, I've decided a little shrug may be needed to complete the look. And so on the way home, I stopped by the yarn shop to pick up some lovely Blue Sky Alpaca Silk (which happens to be the same yarn I used for Elise's coming home outfit 3 1/2 years ago *sigh*).
The plan: I'll cast on tomorrow after work. I was thinking of starting tonight, but I'm too dang tired. Sometimes, after we get the kids to bed, all I can think about is hitting the pillow myself. Tonight is one of those nights. I've chosen a pattern that looks quite simple and pretty- Seedling Shrug by Monika Sirna.
To be totally honest, Elise chose the pattern. I had her sit next to me and look at patterns on Ravelry. She pointed out her favorite one and we went from there. Of course she's a little bummed that the yarn is plain white, but I've assured her that she'll get plenty of use out of it this way :-).
So... wish me luck, and watch my progress via Instagram!Pin It
