It began with the yarn this time, which for me, is very unusual; beautiful Rowan Felted Tweed DK mostly in navy and a variety of other colors that were in my stash. I have quite a collection of this yarn due to sales, left over from projects, and some from projects that have been reconsidered. And recently, I’ve made a concerted effort to deal with some of these balls of yarn that have been hanging around now for some time. So, I set out looking for a pattern that involved multiple colors and, of course, would work up to gauge. Figuring it was Rowan yarn, I set upon looking for a Rowan pattern predicting I would have quite the choice. And, I suppose stripes were on my mind as I have been noticing an abundance of striped projects recently flowing through on Ravelry. Of course, fair isle lurked as a possibility, as well. When I saw Julia Frank‘s short row pullover with a 70’s graphic theme, I knew that my search was over.
This could easily be a three part series: storage of yarn as part one, the management of the process of work(s) in progress, and the final ‘keeping site’ of finished projects. And, for me it is that final step in this series that is capturing my attention as the number of successful finished projects continues to grow.
