Knitting A.D.D.

I think it might be genetic.

As I was working on the diagonal rib mitts the other day, I had an idea for a new scarflette and I started working on it. (Don’t worry Jennifer, the Mitts are nearly done! )

I rarely use wool that is smaller than DK weight, but I had bought this skein of Koigu Painter’s Palette in a vibrant hot pink ages ago. This fingering weight used to frustrate me with little needles and slow progress.  But now I am a stronger knitter, not to mention a little bit faster, and its appeal goes beyond the gorgeous color.

Its been sitting in the bottom of my knitting box, forgotten.  I wanted to knit a pullover scarflette in an open lace pattern, and I thought the smaller yarn would give it an airyness.

I didn’t want it to be bulky at all.  So far so good, Its got a little button placket at the top, and the lattice lace pattern lets in some air, but keeps your neck snug. Maybe I should call it a Neck Snug…

One thought on “Knitting A.D.D.

  1. I think it’s contagious!!! Don’t be afraid of the skinny yarns, they always look sooo pretty when knitted, I love love love that colour.
