Mon tricot



At vampirefan's urging, I joined Ravelry a couple of weeks ago: all this shopping in my closet finally got me down to the Boxes of Yarn level, a stratum of clutter that I never cleared during Project Empty.

Last weekend I used Ravelry's "Stash" function to inventory my yarn. That forced me to quantify it (it's...not quite as bad as I was imagining), and of course got me thinking about all the things I could knit out of it.

After several years' absence, knitting seems like a worthwhile endeavor again: I haven't wanted to put that kind of effort into making the serious traditional sweaters that I like to knit, when I was going to look like a woolly mammoth wearing them.

(NB: This my neurosis talking and has no bearing on anyone else's reality.)

Now that I'm less mammoth every day, the creative possibilities are just flocking in.

Meanwhile, one of my old sweaters, which had lost its buttons as well as its fit, once again goes easily around the Torso of DarkEm, so today I sewed new buttons on it (ELEVEN of them!) and wore it out and about.

Today's "Isn't It Spring Yet?" bicycle-riding outfit:
Norwegian sweater, black pants, and Doc Martens posed like a person, with tulips and shopping basket
In addition to the Norwegian sweater, closet shopping unearthed the pants and, oddly, the Doc Martens which, though they never stopped fitting per se, became intensely uncomfortable and too heavy to wear when I got fatter. Now they're the most comfortable things in the world again.
