It's amazing that I have actually finished two whole projects since beginning anything new!
But, this week I succumbed to the temptation of starting a new project. I really need a change from the constant diet of chocolate brown yarn in the simple lace shawl. Sumptuous as it is, a little variety now and then is a good thing. You know, like making sure you include all the food groups. Chocolate, even dark chocolate, can be too much of a good thing.
This week I started Bettna. I needed to tweak my yarn taste buds with something tangy and savory. Bettna is a Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton design. The pattern is featured on the cover of Noro Revisited. It's classic CTH and I've wanted to knit one for a couple of years. So why not NOW! So what if I have all those other projects that could use a little attention. No willpower whatsoever...
You may have already knit the popular Klaralund from CTH's Noro Book #2, which is an earlier version of a similar design concept. Klaralund is the pullover version knit in four rectangular pieces also in combinations of garter and stockinette stitches.
Here's a close-up of the Silk Garden colorway #234.
So, wishing you the pause in your knitting (with a new project, of course) that refreshes! And hey it's ok - its all fiber and no calories!
