Here is my just finished scarf! I’m very happy with it and I’m sure I’ll make another one.
The brown yarn is Madelinetosh 80/10/10 (wool/cashmere/nylon) in color Sand Dune. The green yarn is Madlinetosh Vintage (100% merino) in color Terrarium. The pattern is Hosta, designed by Nancy Marchant, sold on Twist Collective.
It was really fun and fast to knit. I finished it in exactly 1 month, even with THREE OTHER projects going on! I know! THREE! I actually finished one of those projects today, but I can’t show it to you because I’m going to submit it for publication. If it’s not accepted you’ll be the first to see it, and I’ll publish it myself.
Meanwhile, I have a new job! Yes, I will soon (in September) be working full time again, which will take some getting used to. No more trips to the beach in the mornings, or knitting all afternoon. I also won’t be teaching English anymore. I might just write a post about THAT adventure sometime soon.
The good news is that I will be able to afford to do the fun things I love doing again. Like traveling and eating out at restaurants a lot more often. Now that I know I’ll be working, I’ve already started on a little pent up retail therapy. Mainly shopping for work clothes since I don’t have ANYTHING to wear to a new job. And a little yarn. Always a little yarn.
