It has been since I last bought yarn!

Rainbow Connection

Every once in a while I knit something that even exceeds my expectations for it. I have learned that it's not only just how stunning the project is, but a project is also made by the colors you select for it and the yarn you choose.

In this case- I chose well.

Notes: I've made this before but this time this project just blew my mind. I was so pleased with how it turned out and how relatively fast it came off my needles.

It even looks good on the WRONG side!

The whole time I knit this project, and even as I admire it now- I fully admit I had this song in my head. (It's a personal favorite.) I can think of worse things than having Kermit sing along to your knitting! :-)

You would think that with this off the needles and myself experiencing a little blanket reprieve that I would be all over my other projects. You'd be wrong. I'm not sure quite what's with me but I hardly knit a stitch with this off the needles. The good news (if you look at this way), is there a massive snow dump (*sobs*) forcasted for this weekend and I foresee some forced knitting time coming my way. Hopefully it bring a little progress along with it. In the mean time I might pull this out and look at the cheerful colors again.

It looks awesome! ...like rays of sunshine hitting your face on a warm spring day (which I happen to be dreaming of as we experience this extended winter). Thanks for the cheerfulness! :-)
