Six Word Saturday:
Too much of a good thing.
I love this blue colour. I was about this far into another knitting project using this same yarn when I posted about it nearly a year ago for the Blue Weekly Photo Challenge. I finished that top and decided that it isn’t too warm to wear over a long sleeved t-shirt on cooler days and I had about one and half balls left. I figured I may as well knit it into a scarf, my default for knitting projects, not knowing what else to do with it.
Initially it felt like it would knit up quickly but after only a few rows I realised just how narrow the yarn is and that it is actually going to take quite some time to become a reasonable length for a scarf. Maybe I’ll have it finished in time for next winter.
As it has been half-term break this week I’ve had a little more time on my hands and have spent some of that knitting, which is a good thing. Unfortunately I’ve woken up today with aches and pains between my shoulder blades, which I get sometimes from knitting too much. Hence, too much of a good thing.

Beautiful color! Your scarf is coming along nicely. I hope your knitting pains go away soon.
Have a happy Saturday!
Thanks Dana. Blue is my favourite colour, different shades for different moods. Happy Saturday to you too
Nice work! Blue is a pretty color! God made such wonderful things blue…like the sky, and the pretty blue ocean,…and all of the blue birds etc.! My fav is the blue of my husband’s eyes! (:>)
I have arthritic thumb joints or I’d volunteer to help, Georgia. Hopefully Winter’s almost over and you won’t need it for a while.
It’s a very pretty colour. I think blue is my favourite colour too.
This made me smile, partly because I had just been reading http://spidersworkshop.wordpress.com/ and admiring her beautiful home spun yarns from her goats.
Also, I love blue!
nice colour! I started a scarf back in November – it’s nearly there but at this rate it will be spring and too hot for it – so I think I will be joining you in making a scarf ready for next winter!
