Ravelry does it yet again.
It has made me fallen back in love with a current WIP that hasn't seen the light of day since, hmmm… May 08!? a year ago! It's sat on the top of my WIPs list, yarn under my bed, and mojo out of my sight. I even contemplated using the yarn for something else. And to be honest that is how I came back to wanting to knit it again.
The project is the ever popular and oh so cute – Phildar Leaf Pullover, my fav verson – Klement's. I bought several balls in a lovely dark red Aurora 8 and casted on last May. I've already told you how I love the new IK spring and was thinking of using the yarn for the Soap Bubble Wrap Cardigan. Alas, not enough balls! So I went on to that fabulous knitty site looking at what else people have made with the Aurora 8 and there the Phildar Leaf Pullover was yet again. I clicked on one and then another and then another and realized – I Do Still love you!
I've been watching a several movies lately that have the supporting all-knowing friend give our hero/herone that whole sideways glance look while saying, "You love him/her!" and our hero/heroine always gives the same response, "Oh, ha. No, I don't. Why… I couldn't possibly…" and the friend just laughs and says "Wow, yes you do!" The Ravelry Projects list is SO my supporting all-knowing friend.
I'm thinking of ripping and restarting it with the fronts and backs together. Skip that whole reverse stockenette seaming mumbo jumbo – although I'm sure it's Not That Hard. Of course all this will happen when the Minimalist is done!!
To realize you want what you already have - woot! Thanks Ravelry!
