Hank to ball to I’ll decide in the morning if it’s finished or if I want to add another repeat. Malabrigo Mechita in Whales Road colorway, and I’ve only used 32 of the 100g so far. That’s one very cost-effective hank of soft, washable merino yarn.

A confession: I was working on what I wanted to work on rather than the colors I think the next person in my mental queue would prefer, and that made me want to push on and try to get it all done by the end of the day. I didn’t, quite, but tomorrow I can get to hers instead of having this still in the way. (Much.)

Sometimes you just have to recharge your batteries by knitting what pleases you, and that’s okay.

Bring on the icepacks.

Talk about a gorgeous colour! And thank you for this post: I often forget myself in the queue of items to knit.

I shall follow your example and remember to recharge my knitting batteries as well.

I had to take some muscle relaxants last night. I am happy I was able to knit that much. 🙂

Absolutely, knit for yourself, too! You do so much for others, you’re totally allowed. Once in a while, anyway.

That color is amazing…
