Alright, folks....I'm recommitting to the blog. But, not for the sake of my few readers (hi, mom!) but for my own sake. Too many of my projects are getting a quick 15 seconds of fame on Instagram and nothing else. And, Instagram, while great for showing others what I am making right then kind of sucks as an archive. My blog is a great personal record for me. It's where I turn when I have questions like, "What exactly did I make them for Christmas three years ago?" and "What yarn did I use to make Anna's absolute favorite sweater?" and "My babies were the cutest babies of all time, right?". To find the answers to questions like that on Instagram I'd either have to remember what funny hashtag I came up with that day (yeah, right) or do a whole lot of scrolling. So, long story not so short- more blogging. Hold me to it.
First up, a recently finished project.
My mom fell in love with a shop sample while we were shopping together at Harmony this summer. One problem- she doesn't knit. So, I told her if she bought the yarn, I would knit if for her. I should have thrown a skein for myself in the bargain as well because this stuff is heavenly- so soft and beautiful.
The yarn is Juniper Farm Moonshine. The pattern is the Twin Leaf Lace Cowl and it's available for free.
