(a friday nocturne at the Louvre)
this post was started on tuesday.
now it's thursday. (?!)
oh well, best laid plans. this week has really taken on a life of its own and i'm struggling to hang on to the last little bits of productive time still in it! i skipped knitting group last night because i just needed to stay put (with a movie and a frenchman!) but i was sure to get that knitting in there too. and that was a revelation: after literally years of swatching the same yarn for a bolero and putting it away because it was just not working and i couldn't wrap my mind around it, last night i finally realized that i had never intended the yarn for the bolero. i had intended it for a cardigan in the same pattern book. a cardigan that is supposed to be knit with that very yarn. thus making the swatching dilemma nonexistent.
that is embarrassing.
but it also means that my first sweater is cast-on and in the works. let's just hope i don't forget what pattern i'm using mid-project - sheesh!
i'll wish you a productive thursday if you wish me the same!
