Dressed Up In My Denim

As you have likely noticed if you are a regular reader of this blog, I tend not to write much about other people's knitting. Believe me... I could, and I would have enough material for about 16 posts a day if I did. I am fortunate enough to be one of the lucky few who spends her 'work' days gushing over yarn and other people's creations. However... I feel as though for me to blog about these sorts of things is really not... 'my business'.

But, I must make an exception to my (seemingly loose) rule.

Bear with me here.

I marched into the shop today, all dressed up and ready to take some blog-worthy photos of a scarf/shawl that I just released from those nasty looking blocking wires. (Yes. This is me 'dressed-up'). HILARIOUS!

BUT, I had been mulling about my morning business for no more than 20 seconds when something caught my eye.

I promptly stripped myself of my handy-work only to throw on someone elses.

We have Kersti to thank for this one.

I loooove it. Too much. And while it's hers to keep, it's mine to have fond dreams of. It's mine to lust after when she's not looking (or working at the shop) and on those days that I decide to wear my oversized denim shirt (in some parts, clean denim really IS 'dressed up'- I swear), I just might even 'borrow it'. (Sort of like I did today as evidenced by this photo-documentary).

It even looks beautiful skeined!

Ah... the life cycle of yarn.

The story of this cowl? (Nope. It's not a scarf. It's a loooong scarf sewed together at both ends.)

4 skeins of Berroco Origami
Needles- Erm. I don't know. (I haven't even talked to Kersti about this fabulous finished project yet).
Pattern- Just rib those four skeins of Origami until you run out! Sew the ends together.

So, I'm thinking I'm due to knit one for myself in this colour. Jusy because... cleary, I'm in love.

And these are just because...

I feel like I should share something with you that I actually did make.

Bon appetit!
