(I know this isn’t an Olympics-related entry, but I’m not supposed to start until Friday, so in the meantime…)

Look what I have!


Perfect for brightening up the dull February days.


This yarn, chosen in a late-night marathon online session, is destined to become Bad Penny for my sister, minus the contrast colour trim. (That is, it will still have the trim, but in the same colour as the body). This was originally intended to be a Christmas present, but I knew full well that I couldn’t just choose a top to make for my sister without consulting her — she has very good, but very specific, taste. So I asked her to pick something… and then things got crazy before Christmas, and continued so, and, in the end, we decided on the pattern and colour in the beginning of January, and the yarn arrived about a week ago. I’ve started, and am about halfway through the increases, but there’s a long way to go. I was vaguely hoping to make it in time for Morel’s birthday, but it’s only days away, so that’s not happening — especially with the Olympic knitting starting soon! My guilt is somewhat assuaged by the fact that this is definitely a spring/summer top, so it’s not like she’d be able to wear it in February, anyway.

But I’m enjoying working with sunny, shiny, yellow cotton. So I’ll surely be back to it pretty soon!

Wow, beautiful! Especially in February.
