As I was packing for a short trip into town last week (to see my baby grandson, but that’s a different story – just had to get that in!), my dearest suggested I’d need my largest knitting bag so I could carry my sweater project along. That made me laugh – this has become one of the most unportable projects imaginable, with several dozen butterfly skeins spread out on the couch (which I share with Lolita, my knitting buddy), and a few dozen more balls of yarn waiting for me on a nearby table.
While I have the overall colour design in mind, I didn’t chart how I’m going to use them. Rather, by surrounding myself with this wonderful tapestry of mushroom colours, I can arrange and rearrange the little skeins as I work along, and the next right colour always seems to fall into place.
So far, I have Lolita’s approval.
