|From Kitty Knits by Donna Druchunas.|
Yes, those are black cats by the cuff.
In case you didn’t know, I love knitting. I could spend my entire day doing nothing but knit. However, not all knitting is equal. My knitting has moods. Not sad or mad knitting – to me all knitting is joyful. My knitting moods are different.
Mindless knitting mood. I always have at least one mindless knitting project going. These are the projects that I can do blindfolded. Yes! Blindfolded. I do these projects when I am at a movie theater, in committee meetings at church, in conversations with friends, in any situation that my hands work completed separately from my mind. It could be, and usually is, a hat with just a plain stockinette or rib stitch but it can also be a sock in a straight stockinette. Now, mindless does not mean boring. I like to use colorful yarns, usually striped for these projects. I love working on a hat with a red strip, and a few minutes later, I look down and the color has changed to blue. I don’t like variegate yarns as much because they tend to look too muddy.
