Title: Diamond Blossom Scarf from Iris Schreier’s Modular Knits
Fabric: Artyarns Supermerino #111
You may have noticed that there hasn’t been much knitting going on at this blog lately. The problem, mostly, has been that I’m spending my lunch hour riding the recumbent bicycle over at the Physical Activities Center rather than sitting on a bench in a quiet corner.
Bicycle riding isn’t very conducive to knitting. On the bench outside last fall, I could eat a few bites of my lunch, listen to my book and knit, as desired. Not now. Just about the time I would pick up the needles, the fancy bike at the center would demand that I put my hands on the sensors so that it could check my heart rate.
The other problem is that I have not enjoyed knitting this diamond blossom scarf. Unlike the other modular knits I’ve made, this one just doesn’t flow for me. My brain will not wrap around the process so that I can peacefully knit without referring to the pattern each time there is a new section to work.
So, I don’t pick it up.
I’m never sure if I stopped at a place where I must count something, or slip-knit-pass, or just knit…
Being mostly a one-project woman, I’m bound to finish this before moving on. The ball of yarn is almost gone, and I’ve sworn to not buy another. That’s why I started this in the first place–there was more than 1/2 a ball of yarn left from the last scarf. When this ball is done, the scarf is done and I am free to move on!
