My new job required I learn a new skill. Knitting. Last year about this time I attempted knitting via internet and book instruction, using a very feathery yarn. Foolish me. A friend finished the scarf for me and it's become my favorite. Then I picked up a pretty lavender homespun to make myself another scarf. I think I knitted about three whole rows. Not fun.
Coming into my new job I found that most of the girls knit. And the nurses. And techs. No clue why. Girls sit in the evening with entire blankets in their laps, working on them. So I brought my homespun and wound up taking it apart. Then starting over. Check it out.
Pretty color, yes? That's most of one skein of yarn. Of which I bought two. And it's supposed to be a scarf. When the other tech at work showed me how to cast on, I just cast on till the needle was full (I was talking, too - don't talk and cast on at the same time).
So should I take this bad boy apart and start over? Wait! Before you answer, let me show you what it's full of:
Holes! It's full of holes! The girls at work would be pretty upset if I took this apart. Something about it being my first piece and just keep going till it's finished. But it's full of HOLES. And it's barely going to go around my neck. How frustrating. But I suppose they're right. So what should I do?
The color of this - thing - is what I really want on the dining room wall. It's lovely. Maybe a tad too blue. But I took a different picture of the wall for y'all, at a different time of day, from the living room so you could see how the colors complement. I loved your opinions and thought it only fair to give you a different shot of this.
And here, a little farther out:
I think the colors work pretty well together, but it may be a tad dark. I love the depth of it. And the bottom would most likely be a white beadboard. Well, I'm rethinking that. I don't know. Definitely beadboard.The Hunny and I have been discussing a gold or macaroni and cheese yellow on the other walls, but I don't think it will work with the red brown of the living room. Ew. We talked about it while in a different location. Rethinking that too. I DON'T KNOW.
Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi! You're my only hope!
Until I write again ...
