Now that my socks are done (I added a few more pics and words), I've decided to scratch the itch and knit up my own Hemlock Ring Blanket. I actually don't plan on adding any unique signatures to the pattern this time. Ok, so I tested it out in Kureyon, but it just wasn't doing it for me. Didn't help that I used oddly-colored scraps.
So I pull out my Ecological Wool thinking I'm going to knit instantaneously...just find the start of the yarn...Lo, and behold! I have to wind it myself. Good thing I'm watching The Breakfast Club, because winding that much yarn gets tiresome. Not that it was as bad as anything Ally Sheeds or Emilio Estevez were confiding. I love that movie. But that's irrelevant.
Already long story made a little longer, I have started. Feels good. It's nice to have done a trial run on the center flower. Can't wait to finish, but I don't see this being one of those gloriously portable projects I usually do. The ball of yarn is a bit...beautiful...wait, that's not what I meant to say. Darnit, it's taking over!
