Happy New Year – Here are a few things I’ve been thinking about: Knitting, what other people are knitting, watching tv while I’m knitting, listening to audio books while I’m knitting, listening to podcasts while I’m knitting, Downton Abbey, Valentine’s Day, and what you’re watching or listening to while you’re knitting.
I’m working on a cowl from my good friend and fabulous designer Carrie from Irish Girlie Knits. “My kind of Saturday” is a casual and Summery little thing knit with a yarn made from recycled jeans by Kollage Yarns.
While I loved the concept of upcycling old jeans, I didn’t expect to love knitting with it. I’m much more of a wool kind of gal, and rarely knit with cotton. This yarn has completely won me over.
And the pattern is simple and only needs one skein so it is a perfect way to test the yarn for yourself.
But you’ll probably be like me and start imagining all kinds of items that would be perfect for it. Like a toddler’s top or a little girl’s dress.
