Lately I didn’t knit much. Among other things I’ve been organizing my books. Since I discovered the e-reader a few years ago my paper books don’t get much love. My favorites have been bought digitally so I did a first clean out of our bookcases. Two bananaboxes filled with books have found there way through bookcrossing. Hopefully someone else will read these books and maybe keep re-gifting them to others. With more space around me and in my head I’ve started a new scarf.
I’ve bought Biased transitions from Jenny F here on Ravelry. This pattern has been queued since 2014. I came across Skyhooked’s jeweled wrap and immediately loved this colorway. She uses Schoppel Wolle Zauberball, but I only found this colorway in Schoppel Wolle Laceball 100. So my yarn is a bit thinner. I’m knitting on slightly smaller needles. I guess there will me a bit more color changing in my scarf than in Skyhooked scarf in this picture.
It’s my first bias knitting project. So far I’ve finished the lower edge part. It’s proofing to be a good tv knit project. Lighting is far from great. In real life the colors are so beautiful that I just want to keep knitting. Just looking at colors makes me feel happy. Am I the only one who smiles while petting yarn?
