I have been enthusiastically plugging away at the ABABA scarf from Ravelry. I did have to learn some new stitches (k2tog and p2tog were easy enough, but I'd never actually DONE them, and kfb I had to YouTube) but in general it's easy enough for my stressed out self to handle. I've been sitting in the living room on a reclining chair listening to podcasts and knitting. The pattern is easy enough to memorize so I don't have to constantly flip through it. It's really been rather relaxing, and I've found I'm usually in a better mood afterwards. The constant stitch repetition is definitely improving my tension.
I am using a Zauberball by Schoppel Wolle and loving the long color changes. I always want to knit just a little bit more to see if I can get to the next color before I have to go to bed. And it's pretty soft! I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't had any problems with it so far, it hasn't been too twisty and the thick and thin-ness of it intrigues me. I will definitely be using this yarn again in the future.
I don't have a great picture of the actual project right now. I did, but I got a new phone and haven't figured out if I actually have a way to get the rest of my pictures back from the old one yet. They gave me the memory card from the old phone back when I donated it at the cell phone store, but I'm not sure how to connect it to the computer. Or if my photos are even on there. I need to play around with it... eventually. Or, you know, just take new pictures. Yeah, that would probably be easier.
Here's how I store it though! It's usually in a plastic bag as well for extra kitty proofing. (Please ignore the shoes in the background, we just kick them off when we come inside.)
|It gives you an idea of the color at least. Yay pretty yarn bowl!|
