…you knit a doll blanket with ridiculously cutesy yarn!
Today I went to the yarn shop — with my preschooler — thinking to indulge myself in a single beautiful skein of something to make something with. (I was deliberately keeping my options open.) And there she was, being such a good girl in such a grown up store, skipping down all the aisles, pointing out every single pink skein and squealing with delight over them all.
The conclusion was obvious and I am really enjoying this diversion knit. I thought I was busy last year, with a husband in grad school, both of us working, a kid at home, and a kid in school, but we have managed to take it up a notch this year. Oy.
I have been reduced to hiding in my bedroom on a Friday afternoon, knitting pink yarn, and watching Downton Abbey.
Of course when I write it down it doesn’t sound bad at all. Perhaps I do have a sense of self preservation.
The yarn is Plymouth Encore Colorspun in the poetically named color #7722. Now, if you don’t mind, the blue stripe is waiting…
