the problem with having to knit things – for craft fairs, gifts, samples for yarn shows – is that the minute that’s done, you want to cast on for EVERYTHING in the world.
the first thing i did was make myself a noro striped scarf with noro that was in the stash. 2 balls silk garden and 2 kureyon. a simple and lovely project to guide me back into knitting whatever i want :)
size 9 needles. the second i’ve made this winter season. they’re addictive and oh so beautiful even if the yarn is random and you probably wouldn’t have chosen those colors given the choice. besides, what is winter without a new scarf to wear? especially the craziness that is february. my february needed pink and turquoise. what does your february need?

p.s. my feburary also needed the olympics, pesto-cheese-mushroom rolls, and homemade bread. oh! and we signed up for our CSA for this spring and it starts in april, which is right around the corner.
