That awkward moment…

I see these “awkward moment” statuses on my Facebook feed and I find them amusing, mostly.

Today, I had one myself. Here’s my awkward moment…when you finally find (and buy) the yarn you wanted for the pattern you bought last summer, and you finally have time to get going on the project…but you can’t locate the pattern, and even worse, you’re not sure if you’ll recognize it when you find it. It could have been Minimalist Cardigan by Ruthie Nussbaum

simple knit cardigan with seed stitch trimmed in stockinette for the front band forming the collar

Maybe?

or this..

peasy

or this

And before you know it, there are a dozen new ideas for that yarn! Should have called this post, why I need to clean out my knitting/shopping bags more often.

Hope you are finding plenty of wonderful projects to start and a few to finish, too!

Alpaca inspires a zoning variance

Sue: did you buy one? 😉
Wylie: Wouldn’t fit in the car. Crap.
Ann-Marie: Not from lack of trying, I bet.
Sue: They are so freakin cute. I thought about being an alpaca farmer at one time- who knows….
The Intrepid Knitter: You would be surprised at the price of an alpaca! I’ll stick to spinning the fleece for now.
Sue: Oh, I forgot to mention what stopped me…..
Wylie: “‎Pat K” wouldn’t let me.
The Intrepid Knitter: I don’t believe it. Pat K and I have been scheming on our suburban alpaca farm for a while. We”d call them “Gradoodles” (cross of Great Dane and Poodle) and shear them. Getting them to bark instead of making alpaca noises is a sticking point. (Editor’s Note: Pat K assures me she has a line on a barking dog burglar alarm to solve this problem.)
Sue: I have seen goats and chickens in the city. Surely alpacas cannot be more of an annoyance 😉
Ann-Marie: Oh, “Intrepid Knitter”, this has GOT to be a blogpost!

The Intrepid Knitter : @ Ann-Marie: consider it done!
