On the knitting front...

I needed a bit of mind rest and so I switched to knitting. Remember the scarf I was making? I've knit that one and FOUR others since, and have another one on the needles, plus this little beauty.

Some of you might recognize it. It's Versatility, from Knitty. It is such a fun pattern to knit, and this yarn is such a delight to work with! A half pound skein at $18 a skein, its going to be a present for my mom this Christmas. Although since my knitting is a little rusty and I have to work on it at night after the girls are asleep so I can pay attention to the pattern, that means I'm already really tired by the time I grab my needles, and I can only knit about 20 rows, tops! And that's rows with less than 50 stitches and a not very complicated mesh pattern plus some cables!

Still, I'm eager to knit a little bit every night. I love the feel of the yarn, because it's kind of... Buttery. It feels the way buttered sour cream biscuits fresh out of the oven for breakfast taste like, if you know what I mean. The pattern is the hot cup of coffee that goes with it.

It's a turkish acrylic and the color way reminded me of the Noro yarns! I think she's gonna love it, and I really like working with it.

I'm afraid I'm gonna have to start saving and buy more of this yarn in the future!

See you around, friends!

Looks really nice! At first I thought it was Noro yarn - lately I am seeing it everywhere on other people's needles.
I am a slow knitter too, nothing to be ashamed of! Vísteme despacio que tengo prisa. ;-)

It does look like a Noro colorway. It's beautiful.
