This weekend I told myself that I would work on homework and do some design stuff, but Saturday rolled around and was beautiful. I decided to hit the thrift store and get the ingredients to make a pie instead. I walked to the shops and I remembered that the Farmer’s Market was running later this year than it used to so I stopped by. And what did I see?
Wool! I had never seen yarn at the Farmer’s Market before. The stand was selling mostly meat, including lamb. The yarn was a reminder of what I told myself I would do on Saturday, but I was on a new mission so I went to get the ingredients for pie.
I grabbed some lunch while I was there and I sat down at the tables outside to eat. A few minutes later a woman came and sat down at the table next to mine with a latte. She dug around in her bag for a bit and finally pulled out some knitting. It was like I couldn’t escape yarn. It was following me everywhere!
I made my pie, but I also dug out my little orange sketch book and doodled up some ideas. Last night I started swatching. I know I have two sweaters on the needle already, but nothing beats working on my own designs.
