Nothing feels better than feeling better. After I wrote the post on not feeling well, I spent a few days alternating between napping and working. And, then I was back on the knitting horse. I felt better even if I didn’t sound better. Colds are the best. I started a new project. Couldn’t help myself. I have some Gilmore Girls yarn from Spartickes Dyes and I started a Follow Your Arrow 2 by Ysolda Teague. As I got into the rhythm of knitting, Cooper got comfortable and we spent a lovely afternoon knitting and snoozing.
At first, I wasn’t sure about the color way of the yarn. It is called fire cake and it is a color I probably wouldn’t have chosen on my own. (This is part of the joy of being in a yarn club, the Gilmore Girls one in particular. You get to pick from the inspiration but you don’t get to pick the yarn itself.) Now that I’ve knit it up some, I like the 1970s vibe it’s giving off. This will be a fun piece to have in the fall.
The colors are actually brighter in person. And, yes, even though I didn’t get a shot of Cooper in the project, it does look pretty good on him.by
