I swear must be a masochist. It is the only reason to explain why I am using US size 1 needles and fingering weight yarn to knit a baby blanket (Pinwheel Baby Blanket) . Why am I causing my sanity (and hands) such agony? It is all for the love of beautiful yarn. Sweet, sweet, beautiful yarn. Ugh… certify me ridiculous!
But maybe you will see it my way?
Look at these beautiful purples and blues! I am using Knitted Fever’s Painted Desert Collection in Medium Orchid and Grape Stomping. The center is a wool blend that I had lying around in my stash. I am so ecstatic with how the colors have formed such beautiful stripes that blend together. It really does look like the striated rocks of the southwest landscape.
And look at those stitches. I love tight stitch work as it looks so polished. With knitting this tight there really isn’t much tension correction that needs to be done when wet blocking.
*Sigh* this project and I have formed a love/hate relationship. I love watching it unfold, but it is a pain to make it. However, let’s be real… my love of knitting will always outweigh the “suffering.” Haha
