Yarn Along – Enjoying the Season

Yarn Along
~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here.~ This is how Lisa begins her blog, Small Things, on Wednesdays.

Many of the wonderful items, knitted or crocheted,
I see get added to my someday list.
Books and authors, new to me, peak my interest.

What do you call a ‘yarn bog’?

I have been in a yarn bog during most of 2016.
Nothing ‘yarny’ seems interesting.
All yarn gets moved out of sight.
Even the guilt of WIP’s couldn’t raise its head.

I got a yarn tug mid year and bought a couple skeins,
but ‘plop’ back down I went.

Then in December while house/dog/cat sitting for my son
this little inch-worm of a yarn thought showed up.
I got an idea for a knitting yarny project.
I bought some yarn.
I knew I didn’t like using
because there is no stitch definition.

When I first started knitting I used a lot of this yarn.
I loved knitting.
But not too sure of how my stitches looked.
As I knitted more and learned more about patterns,
I wanted to see my knitting.
I enjoyed hearing “oh, did you knit that”

So I returned what yarn hadn’t been used.
I took a dive in the stash shed and
found white yarn purchased for ____________?
I started a afghan in bulky yarn
using a pattern for a tablecloth
in the old shale pattern.
I’m on row 66 and only had to rip out 5 rows
somewhere in the 40’s.

Not sure if I’m out of the bog,
but I enjoying this season of knitting.
