Part of the reason my knitting mojo has been a bit low is the fact that I had some unhappy yarn. This yarn. When I tried this top on it felt absolutely wonderful against the skin, but I really started to worry about how well it would wear. The yarn just seems fragile to me, easily snagged and frayed. Also, being silk, the top was a bit lifeless. This week it occurred to me that the yarn might be better suited to being crocheted rather than knitted, so I did some searching on Ravelry and found a cute bolero from DROPS Design. Last night I did a swatch, and now I have three rows.
The yarn is happy, and so am I.
