My crackyarn dealer has come through again enticing me with her addictive offerings. I already have a skein of the merino silk laceweight which I planned to use to make this beauty, but seeing the mix of wool and silk and moldable stainless steel and the cables and the random, I fell in love.
Cliffs of Insanity. Awesome.
I also realized that while I very much appreciate lace, it's not me. I don't really like knitting it and it's not something I wear. That doesn't mean I won't knit it eventually, I just want Cliffs more.
Mine will be blue (You punched the highlights our of her hair) with violet Habu stainless/silk. I can't wait to cast on.
And the name, that also got me. My life currently feels like I'm on the brink of a cliff. It's very busy at work, school is coming to an end, with all it's final recitals and ceremonies and soccer season has begun. I'm thinking about where my career is going next and what I want to be when I grow up and I'm running a lot. It's crazy. I think a random, soft, silky project with some steel for resilience is just what I need.
