So, you know when you drag all the left overs out of the fridge and you have that sort of unappetizing assortment of little bits of this and that? And then you start mixing stuff together and before you know it, dinner looks pretty good?
Well, that's how I feel about my latest project. I had all these leftover bits of linen (and some single skeins I'd bought on sale) and I'd take them out and they didn't look like much but now that I've started to mix them together in this Sonoma Stole, I'm finding them very appealing.
This pattern is pretty easy but it is NOT, however, a mindless knit. You are working in an ever changing rib pattern with increases and decreases because it's knit on the bias. Every odd row you must break the yarn for the fringe. You have to pick your striping sequence and then remember to change colors at the appropriate time. It's a lot to think about and you definitely can't let your mind wander.
But I think it will be worth it in the end. And if nothing else, I'm clearing out the leftovers which will make room for delicious new yarns!
