Ever have a skein of yarn that you fell hard for, but got over it in a hurry when it just couldn’t seem to decide what it wanted to be? Yes, I tend to assign human characteristics to inanimate objects, even putting projects into time out for not cooperating. Well, this particular yarn has been in and out of time out several times. I’ve even toyed with the idea of relegating it to the back of what I call the Not In My Lifetime UFO box. I decided to give it one more chance, sticking it into my carry-on bag for my trip to Bangkok. So far, it’s playing nice and I’m beginning to feel optimistic. 🤞🤞🤞
At some point, the ball band became history, but I think it came from Knitpicks.
Last go at this yarn
I’m hoping that the Ariel Socks from Ravelry will suit us both. 😋
I’ve been missing my pottery wheel a lot the last few days. This is the longest I’ve gone without throwing anything. I’m glad I worked as hard as I did, mopping and scrubbing my workspace. It will be so nice to come back to clean tools and a clean wheel!
A QUICK WORD REGARDING BLOG CHANGES
Wondering about all the blog flipping and flopping? Yeah, me too. 😳 Here’s the deal…..
I let my long time knitting blog slide after getting my very own pottery wheel and spending the time I usually set aside for blogging playing in the mud and getting a feel for my new equipment. I fully intended to get back to my knitting blog, but it was always going to be “tomorrow”.
I missed blogging much more than I thought I would and so decided to add another blog to the mix. What was I thinking?? I’m having issues with keeping iknead2knit going and I convinced myself that adding another blog was the perfect solution?? All I can say is this – DON’Y TRY THIS AT HOME!
Long story short – Condensed the two blogs into one and renamed the whole nine yards, starting fresh. So….,Welcome to new blog, Mud&String. I hope you like it!
A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers.
