A Day In The Life Of A Knitter...

1. You Get The Whole “Isn’t That For Old People?” Question….You’re reaction might be: 

2. “Can you knit that” You can’t but what the hell nothing ventured nothing gained right? 

3. Then there’s that one kill joy “You aren’t knitting that right and omg you dropped a stitch you’re horrible at this, you should totally do it this way- blah blah blah blah blah" 

4. Spotting Yarn that just makes you sigh…

5. Having to explain WHY you went over your Yarn Budget…That Malabrigo ain’t cheap huh? 

6. Having random people ask you to make stuff…..after they’ve teased you for knitting.

Oh, the wonders of bulky yarn.

Can I just say how much I love bulky yarn? It knits up quickly, which is totally a plus, but what I love more is how sculptural it is. You can see each individual stitch, and each stitch has its own presence. I love it.

I’m currently working on a lace scarf for my mom (pics to come) and I’m using Cascade Magnum yarn. It’s soft, beautiful, and BIG. Like seriously, the yarn is huge. It really makes the lace pattern stand out and the color is gorgeous (I’m using Garnet).

Above: Cascade Magnum in Garnet. Get yourself a skein of this stuff!

P.S. I’m still looking for more followers who want to follow me on this knitting blog. I’ll always follow back. :)
