Imagine When I Found My Mojo

My missing mojo has been found! It was hiding in a knitting group and a wool festival.

After joining the knitting group a couple of weeks ago, I picked the shawl I started in April back up. Getting back to the needles felt good. It didn’t hurt that the yarn was something as beautiful to work with as Anzula Cloud. The pattern is Imagine When by Joji Locatelli. I absolutely love the play between the simplicity of the garter stitch and the skewed sections created by short rows. And the color  - petunia, a shocking pink. And the squish factor – what’s not to love about merino and cashmere?! This is going to be a favorite.

But Shipping Was Free

I needed a set of double pointed knitting needles to finish the sleeves on my sweater. I could only find the size I needed locally in bamboo, and I really prefer nickel. So I bought these from Knit Picks for $6.99.

But shipping was going to cost me $3.99. So I added a back issue of Interweave Knits, four skeins of yellow Imagination fingering weight alpaca blend, three skeins of grayish Shadow merino lace weight and a Knit Happy sticky note pad. For a total of $44.67. So I could get free shipping.

Don’t judge.
