February is coming, and even though Winter is far from over, I can hear Spring knocking at the door. We knitters have to think at least one season ahead, if we want to wear our masterpieces. And you know what? I'm no exception. I'm a knitter, and I'm thinking one season ahead. This is why, my friends, I decided to put warm and cozy Iberville back in the knitting basket. Yes! I mean, why would I want to knit something that I will only wear in several months? I love it with a passion, but my heart is screaming for something else!
One of my 2010 knitting resolution was Knitting must stay a pleasure. Even though I did succeed last year with this resolution, it doesn't mean that it's now out-of-date. I'm sticking to it. And knitting Iberville doesn't give me any knitting pleasure right now.
This is why, after looking through my inspiration board, I decided to cast on something springy, summery, light and feminine. I wanted something that I could easily wear on a chilly Summer night, or all day during Spring. And I wanted lace.
I had three skeins of gorgeous Fleece Artist Merino 2/6 sleeping in the same knitting basket where I've put back Iberville (yes, I have a few). I knew they would be perfect! And this, at least, will be ready for the right season!
