You know how it is — you’re surfing Ravelry, maybe cleaning things up a bit. You come across a pattern you added to your queue a couple of years ago. You click on it, then go take a look at what else the designer has listed. Just casually, you know. Then there it is: the next thing you want to knit.
The pattern is Zephyr Cove by Romi Hill, part of the “Home is Where the Heart Is” collection of small shawls. I wanted to use the same colors she used in the sample — green and blue — so I went into my stash and came up with several possibilities. None of the combinations seemed to be what I wanted, until this: one of my favorite yarns, Brooklyn Tweed LOFT. The green is “Artifact” and the blue is “Old World.”
I’ve been overtaken by a new project, one with a delightful little leaf at the beginning. I think I know how this day is going to go.
