Rave-Lovely weather. I mentioned I’m reading Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitting Workshop. Note that there is a second edition published in 2014, which is the one I have.

Deep Thoughts

Joy and the Journey. I’m going to stop knitting patterns and colors that don’t give me joy. So much of this process that I revisit again and again centers around me trusting myself and my instincts instead of forging ahead because “they” say it’s the correct thing etc. This is the hamburger color cardi I mention which is the #294 Open Summer Cardigan by Knitting Pure and Simple

Also look into the #yarnlovechallenge over at instagram. It’s a lot of fun.
