muse motivation April 10, 2013

Since the weather has been a bit misty and rainy the past few days, my energies have turned from the garden back to the needle, back to the cozy indoors…

Pulled along by TOP OF THE LAKE I’ve made quite a bit-O progress on my HEY GIRL cardi…

Nothing like a little suspense from down under to put the pedal to the metal – I actually think I knit faster watching thrillers! – and this one has some r.e.a.l. interesting moments (whatabboud the head tattoo? find me a picture of Jay Ryan’s bird-head and I’ll send you a free patttern)…

I fantasize now about getting a nice cozy container and parking it near the Pacific somewhere…

Starry-eyed, the knit goes on

And, but of course, this is now at the point wherein I bribe myself with some buttons.

The collection is pretty big right now, but really tips on the black and white side with a lot of brown tortoise-y colors thrown in.

This oatmeal yarn could do with one of those, but its light freshness seems to want to be matched in tone a little bit better.

I’m especially enamored of some light-slivery buttons – they are the most fashion-forward of the bunch, but maybe a bit too flashy? The light tortoise ones have the standard Mr. Rogers appeal and the monotone taupe-colored ones (with the little middle bump) seem just a tad bland.


Mod vs Traditional. Have to think about that.
