My thumb’s all better, and my mood, too! I’m giving credit for the latter to a quirky book I found at work–The Elegance of the Hedgehog.
Hermanita’s gift is done–on time!–and now I’m casting about for the perfect new project. (I didn’t have time to block the lavender demon, so the reveal will have to wait.)
While I was waiting for my thumb to feel better, I banged out a floppy potholder/trivet with some ancient yarn recently reclaimed from a shawl.
The pattern comes from Weekend Knits, via an old copy of Interweave Knits. I adjusted the pattern a bit to accomodate a bulky yarn, and it was a good instant gratification project, but not exactly what I was looking for.
Now I’m trying a pair of Latvian Socks, from my all-time favorite sock book, Folk Socks. Erm. I guess I should’ve expected this with fingering weight yarn and size 0 needles, but they’re going a bit slow.
The search for the perfect project (as of now) continues….
