Vintage Vespa

I’m workin’ on it, ok?

I started this loop batt just before thanksgiving. I spun on it most of thanksgiving afternoon, working hard to get myself out of the gray and into the green. I did. I’ve spun on it off and on since. At Renegade Knitters, I felt like I’d spun forever on the green, but I still wasn’t done before the game of epic horror Saturday night. I spun through that too, and was only beginning to see a bit of red as I left that night.

Thankfully, tonight I have a little wheel time and maybe I’ll get to see just a bit more red. I was really at a loss as to what to do with this colorway. It isn’t one I would have chosen on my own, but it was part of a club. Clubs are fantastic for getting me to think out of the box, and while I contemplated lace shawls and tree skirts or christmas decorations, I ended up absolutely floored over someone else’s project.

I saw someone weave with this colorway. It was AMAZING. It wasn’t christmasey at all. The colors blended into something else completely and the scarf was just amazing. And now I can’t stop thinking about the loom which resides under my bed and how I could totally make something similar if I’d just get myself in gear and LEARN.
