I’m going to stick my chin out a bit today. Do you remember last year, how horrible it was with all the gray and the lack of color? I feared this year would be the same and for that reason I have not started a gigantic dark blue lace project (and also because I’m not particularly fond of dark blue as it is and I already have a big dark blue lace shawl due to last year’s knitting). It hasn’t been as bad yet though and I think that has a lot to do with the fact that we don’t have forty eleven moving boxes everywhere around a dark livingroom anymore but has instead gotten quite a few nice lamps. Also, from the picture in the blog post linked above, it looks like the weather did everything to ruin people’s moods, especially mine.
So far this year it hasn’t been as bad as last year, even though I instead of a huge blue lace am knitting an even bigger white lace but so far it’s okay. White means light. White means snow which means light. And I try to think very carefully before I cast something on and so far it hasn’t been a complete disaster. We’re only in the beginning of February though, there’s still time to break down but let’s just hope it doesn’t happen.
Pattern: Full Spectrum by Cindy Garland. Yarn: Stunning Superwash from Stunning String Studio. Colorway: I have no idea, this was a year long MKAL and there are ball bands everywhere but not necessarily where I happen to look.
