Thoughts and inspiration for the winter months coming up: Never deny sunshine that is trying to flood through your windows. Open up the blinds and welcome it in. Especially on cold days. Fill your life with color and texture. Laugh.

The other day.

Exert from my traveling journal:

Ripping out the “my so called scarf”.
How could I mess up this pattern?
How could I knit the wrong row on the wrong side?
It is totally recognizable as to which side is which!
My poor, poor laceweight alpaca.
It made horrible noises when ripping it out, like matted hair being brushed.

I turned to my husband in my distraught and muttered, “I am above this.”

Maggie Smith as Thetis

Which in turn caused a conversation including Maggie Smith, as Thetis from Clash of the Titans, cursing me for being so vain. Vain for knitting something for myself and humbling me for doing so.

So that is when I decided it was time to start my Wooly Wormhead Mystery KAL. I will show her how vain I can be!
