Not a good day for yellow here in rainy Chicago today but I’m feeling themey so I thought I’d give it a shot. Here’s a possible yellow & white apron in progress for Amy’s new theme and a shot of yellow for Kerstin’s color week (more yellow on thriftcraft too). Why am I knitting? Kay and Ann‘s new book came from amazon on friday and the knitting bug is buzzing in my ear. I don’t really go crazy for knitting. I’ve had my moments…stash building obsessive months of dreaming about yarns every night, making snap decisions at elann, buying up old Rowan and Rebecca pattern books as if I’d ever actually knit myself a sweater (!).. but these wear off pretty quickly. Mason Dixon Knitting is making me all knitty again. It is so fun to read about their love of knitting and their great imaginative approach at making original patterns. And I LOVE the quilting/knitting thing! I really want to knit a log cabin blanket some day. But in the end I’m still all about the fabric so what grabbed me the most were the delecatable photographs of rag balls in the book. I went right at my thrifted sheets and made some to play with.
