Yarn Along

Makai is in time out again.  I don't know if it's the yarn but I'm not loving it right now.  I love the pattern, but I'm finding it a chore to work on lately and with so many other projects in my basket - I am knitting what makes me happy.

So it's back to Brickless

This I am enjoying.  And while I'm not sure I picked a great yarn to show off the stitches, it's fun to work on and I think it's going to be a great knit.  


I am hoping once it's blocked you will really be able to see how pretty it is.  I'm hoping the blocking happens this weekend.  That may be a bit ambitious on my part.


And it goes so nice with my owl project bag.  

I'm getting caught up on my knitting podcasts so I might actually read this weekend.  

Unless some new ones come out...

"I am knitting what makes me happy." LOVE this! We all should be knitting what makes up happy. :)

Hope you finish! Can't wait to see it blocked! ~Lisa

Oh those knits that won't behave. I'm glad you have something to knit that is enjoyable. Knitting is suppose to be fun right?

That yarn reminds me of a Calico kitten. Very pretty.

Hello

Brickless is a lovely pattern and I love the yarn you are using, it reminds me of Autumn.
Good luck with the blocking!

The good thing about knitting time outs is that we always seem to have something else to work on in the meantime!

I love all the colors in your yarn. Brickless has been a happy knit for me too.

May not be the best yarn for the knit, but it sure is a pretty colourway! And yes, good for you for knitting what makes you happy!

lovely! If it makes you feel better I put many things in time out as well. It teaches them a lesson.

Such a pretty yarn. I know of timeouts! My pink cardi just needs arms but I can't bear to work on it right now. Prettier things are calling my name :)
