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.

One thought on “Overtaken

  1. I know exactly what you mean. That happens to me all the time. But it's wonderful to be so delightfully surprised and inspired at the same time, is it not? Happy knitting. I look forward to seeing your finished shawl. 🙂
