Getting Ahead of Myself

Yarn – Bernat Jacquards in Jade Jacquard

At the beginning of  my last few projects, I’ve taken pictures of the yarn and told you the story behind why I picked the project that I did.  Well, this time I didn’t take pictures of the yarn skeins because I just had to start knitting.  Right away.  No time to waste.

So, instead I present to you the beginning of my new project:

I cast on and I couldn’t stop knitting!

But, don’t worry.  I wouldn’t leave you without the story behind the project.

My youngest child is going to start preschool in the fall.  (Look! I wrote that without crying!  Improvement!)  Last year, she took a Mommy and Me class.  When I decided not to send her to preschool this year, we repeated her Mommy and Me year.  Her teacher has become a good friend of mine and after two years of Monday mornings with me, the woman deserves a nice hand knit scarf.

I’m already enjoying the pattern, the yarn, and the time spent thinking about my friend and my baby girl.

I love how the color is dispersing in this pattern - so pretty!
