As I mentioned in my last post, I finished Hamsa on Sunday night.
Knit with Knitting Notions Classic Merino Lace in the Very Berry Colourway (I won the yarn and the pattern at the Ravelry Party at Rhinebeck last year).
What can I say about this project? It was a lovely knit, I really enjoyed it. So much so that I ended up doing 12 repeats of the pattern as opposed to 9, partly because I like my scarves to be a bit on the longer side, and partly because I didn't want any of the lovely yarn to go to waste. But honestly, it was such a quick knit (you know,when I actually had time to work on it?), I really didn't mind.
I don't know what it is lately, I'm absolutely overcome with the urge to knit. Cardigans, hats, blankets, mittens. You name it, I want to knit it. It's made sticking to the whole "yarn diet" thing a bit... difficult. All I'll say is: stay tuned for some yarn pron in the next few days, OK?
I'll leave you with a picture of another type of berry, this one taken from one of my flower boxes turned strawberry patch. My good friend Alison is coming over tomorrow night to teach me the ancient and venerable art of canning and preserving, so this shot seemed appropriate :)
Happy Knitting Everyone!
