I can't recall why I stopped knitting for a while...chalk it up to a change of season, time constraints, not feeling particularly creative or all of the above. No matter. I am back at it. This particular yarn is a beauty. I've had a sweater's worth of the Deep Teal colorway in my stash for about 4 years now, sitting there waiting patiently for me to finally have the motivation and the right project. I was originally going to design a garment for this yarn but decided the easiest (and fastest) way to get back in the groove is to just get started with a lovely published pattern with all the hard stuff figured out for me. Feels good to be back!
