A TidBite of Yarn.
A few months (probably quite a few months now) I discovered the honeycomb knit pattern. I've perchance become obsessed since them. To claim that I purely read the pattern and whipped it out, and didn't watch every possible youtube video known to humanity to figure out said pattern, might be considered a lie. Really, I can't read. That is... I can't read Knitting patterns. The acronyms make me want to forcibly throw things.
Insert Ravelry.com If you knit, you likely already know about this gem. I believe a friend of mine ran across the rainbow comb on the Pinterest where I first became infatuated. Know that this friend eats advanced patterns for breakfast. The glorious rainbow was tracked to Ravelry where I let the cosmos know that I needed to have a rainbow honeycomb...thing.
The pattern is for a baby blanket. Usually there is a red flag there. In this case the word "Blanket"(aka creation never to be finished ever.Never never ever.) But honestly, I didn't really care. The rainbow spoke to me. It told me to go to the yarn store immediately and spend an absurd amount of money on every color of it's existence. Obviously I couldn't refuse.
Ravelry Rainbow Honeycomb inspiration! er pattern.
Epic personal recreation below.
The pattern is so easy once you memorize it. Which takes exactly 4 combs to do. Cakesauce.
Apparently I'm not one of those people who hates changing colors every 30 seconds. It's what kept me going. Especially after the dumb amount of blues and purples that i bought. WHICH I LOVE.
Anyway, it's not done. It's fate is to become a bag. A relatively large bag. I intend to line the beast with fabric to give it some body then sport it. Boom. This could take another year or two. No rush.
TidBite. -deep breath-
But I heart the pattern so much, partially due to it's semi monotonousness and partially because it looks freaking hard and isn't!
Therefore I obviously needed a scarf too.
TidBite 2: Infinity scarf.
The blue is a touch misleading to the variegation in the ball. It's more of a grey, brick, purple, lime, chartreuse colored ball. With some random ass turquoise snuck in. It's going to be a round, endless scarf OR infinity as the young kids call it. I've got a friend who gave me yarn to knit her an infinity scarf. I'm thinking honeycomb. So the cats out of the bag on that one lindsey. heh
Also during my epic voyage through Voyager I finished my TidBite of Dresser!
I Know! It all very exciting and promising.
The lighting in my house has left something to be desired. But I have my Tv stand back. Rather, my entire house. The kitchen is kitchen sized again as is my floor, floor sized. The chaos the lack of tv stand had created was starting to cause a serious twitch in my soul.
Until the Tid-verse returns I leave you with a recently ID'd "Squat Lobster".
Mr. Pinch Bug
I like that name better anyway.
