The last time I was in Sudbury, I paid a visit to Sweet Yarns, a really wonderful little shop in the south end that has a great selection of yarns and a really friendly vibe. I went to get a replacement needle for a project I was working on, and ended up chatting with their knitting group while I browsed the yarn, and ended up taking home a couple skeins of Malabrigo Rios in ‘lotus’, specifically to make the Honey Cowl:
This cowl, particularly the bigger size that I’m making, is a lot of mindless knitting, which is great- it’s the kind of project you can do while carrying on a conversation, and it’s a nice fit for yarns with a lot of colour shifts, which often look so attractive in skein form and then become a bit of a mess when you try to knit anything with them. However, it’s not my only knitting project on the go, since I often like something a little more challenging for when I’m feeling like a super knitter. But more on my other projects later.
While trying to get photos, there was a little helper who was eager to get in on the action:
See how some stitches are already coming off the needle? Good helping, Lila!
