And the wool bug bit recently. Hard. I was innocently minding my own business (and perusing Ravelry.com) when I came across a big, luscious scarf/wrap thing that spoke to me. Well, spoke might be a little too soft; it actually beckoned in a fairly large voice that it really really wanted to be my first project of Fall 2014. It was called Livezy House Wrap.
Oh, and it didn't hurt it's case by being shown in almost exactly the same colors as some scrumptious skeins of Thirteen Mile Organic Wool that I'd been drooling over all summer.
Drooling all summer? Let me back up a sec and clarify: I have the marvelous good fortune of working part-time at a small mill here in the Gallatin Valley, the Thirteen Mile Lamb & Wool Co. Oh. My. Gosh. If you think you have a wool addiction now, just try working at a mill where you are surrounded, day in and day out, with a plethora of amazing, organic wool products of every possible description…. No time to go into all that now; just let me say that there were these skeins in extraordinarily warm and delicious fall colors that went together so beautifully it almost made me cry. Hence the drooling. When I could stand it no longer, they went home with me.
And that's how Organic Livezy became my first and current Fall 2014 knitting project. It's the kind of project you never want to end. I'd turn it into an king-sized blanket or a mile-long scarf but I'm pretty sure I'd run out of yarn before then. So I'll just live in the moment and enjoy every stitch while it lasts….
