Buggin' Me!
A Sort Of Metaphor

High on Believin'

Here's one that might take you back a bit. . .

 

Normally, I'm pretty thoughtful about what I knit . . . next.  I plot and I plan.  I check out Ravelry.  I think about yarn.  And colors.  And options.

Finally, I buy the pattern.  And start thinking about how it's all going to come together.

But.

Every once in a while. . .

something happens.

Maybe I'll be working at the yarn shop. . . and a new shipment comes in.  And I happen to open the box.

And a new yarn catches my attention.

And a new pattern looks kind of intriguing.

And then. . .  I see that there's something kind of interesting in the putting together.

Is it a cable?

Lace?

Could that be a braid????

Yep. That did it.  I was . . . hooked on a feeling . . . that this was the next knit for me!

Go with that feeling no matter how or when it comes, as you're right on the money! The vest suits you, fits you well and looks like it was a blast to knit!! That feeling is a great indicator of the right way to go.

That is so cool, I am so tempted...
