The label of this yarn that I bought Friday says: Stricken kann sŁchtig machen! And if you’re a knitter you understand, even if you don’t speak German…
Knitting can be addictive. Very addictive. And isn’t autumn all about cozying up indoors with a yummy ball of wool and turning it into something wearable? I think so. I think that’s the reason autumn was invented. So we could all roll up under handmade quilts, watch a movie without needing blinds for the windows – and just make stuff. Mmm! Oh, and put those knitted socks to use too.
The yarn is called Zauberball 100, by Schoppel. It’s ombre in purplish, pinks and browns 100 % virgin wool. I was convinced by knitting friends (who recently opened a yarn shop of all things!) to knit a skirt, though I doubt the usefulness, the prettiness and the idea of a knitted skirt. Who wears that? With what, and when anyway?
But so far it’s super fun to knit, so what ever comes out I will enjoy the process of knitting, especially while I am listening to the awesome audio books in the Divergent Series, sci-fi by Veronica Roth. Yum!
The pattern is the free Lanesplitter Skirt from Knitty fall 2010, a hit among knitters then I think. Simple knitting, without too much thinking – just the way I like it.
And also, it’s the end of the month, so time for another inspirational mosaic:
Last month’s inspiration mosaic can be viewed in my fun Q&A post How to become Extremely Creative in 2 simple steps.
