I am short of time today so I thought I’d just scan the latest patterns in Ravelry to offer you up something thrilling to drool over. Sadly, I just do not have the time to search the trees in order to find the wood. The pearl amongst the swine cannot be found. The needle is lost in the haystack. What am I on about? I am carping about all the dross that finds its way into Ravelry. Yes. I am being a miserable old baggage.Yes. I probably will add to the dross myself at some point 🙂
Knitted cover for your bicycle lock, anybody? Spring Onion bag for your tennis balls…Â or maybe a knitted cover for your milk jug. There are the endless washcloths of course (What is it with washcloths? Who knits bloody washcloths in this day and age? and why?) and numerous uninspiring socks… The Emperor’s outfit looks a little thin these days.
Sorry, no, I cannot offer you the beautiful and challenging knitting thrill that I would wish you to gaze upon today.
So, I’m going to tell you just how thrilled I was this week to be accepted as one of Rosemary (Romi) Hill’s new test knitters.
I am going to be a test knitter. Wheeeeee! Now, that is thrilling.
I’ll tell you something else as well – whatever comes out of that process will be a thrilling pattern, and good value for money.
