A Knitting Palette Cleanser

January 23, 2015

Just as when enjoying a big, complex meal, sometimes a knitter needs to cleanse her palette with something refreshing. I’m working on a sweater for Michael and am nearly done the second sleeve. But a couple of nights ago, I had the urge to finish something  — anything.

An early Valentine decoration fit the bill. Using DPNs and some of the red yarn for the sweater, I finished the first side in about 15 minutes. After soaking and blocking (I know, not totally necessary but I’m a creature of habit), I had this lovely wee thing.

The next day, I knit its pair and, after a refresher on the blanket stitch, finished.

Aaaah, that felt good.

  2. Funny you should ask, Cathie. No new yarn was required but as you may have guessed from its size, the little heart doesn’t quality as a Stash Buster.

    Curious … Did you have to buy any yarn?
