my goodness, you guys. i love me some knitting. and i’m going to share with you what is possibly my favorite knit project thus far.
ever since i pulled together images for fall color inspiration, this one has stuck with me:
the way the cream melts right into the hot chocolate. as my daughter would say, gorgeous. now, i know it could be completely pavlovian. i mean, to be honest, i look at this photo and i start to get twitchy and wonder why i haven’t got a cup of this goodness in my hand. (cue: oh darling husband of mine!)
hot chocolate for me signals the transition to the colder months. it’s when you start replacing the ice cream with a mug of steamy chocolate and curl up on the couch and read. or knit, if that’s your pleasure.
this is my first colorwork project. it was fiddly at first. i knit continental and tried to do two handed knitting. no good. took too long and it was exasperating. patience being an overrated virtue (santa, please don’t listen to me here), i went to that indomitable fount of all wisdom: google. i promptly learned to knit with both colors on one hand. off we go!
and i think baby bean agrees with me. these gloves have been well worth the effort! i mean, really, don’t his little legs look cuter being cradled in these gloved arms? amirite?
seriously, though, because i can’t resist: baby feet. *nomnom*
i’ve entered these in the celebrate color event.
