Decisions, Decisions

Today’s topic is to create a poll on a knitting topic.  The first thing that popped into my head was my ever burning of question of what I’m going to do with my yarn club yarns once the year is over.  (All of my yarn club posts can be found under the category Yarn Club if you want to take a look).  My plan is to make a giant Cleveland project blending all 12 yarns into one project.  Now, I won’t use all the yarn for the project, I’ve already dived in and used some of January’s yarn for another project but I have enough left over to incorporate into the bigger project.  We all love Ravelry but I really wanted to figure out a way to search for projects that require 12 or more colors.  In the meantime, I’ve been keeping my eye out and marking any projects I think will work.  So, here’s where you can help – I’ve listed my top 3 in the poll and I’ve included Other.  If you vote Other, please leave a suggestion in the comments so I can check out some other options!

In case you are wondering – here are links for the options: 1. Dotted Rays 2. Memory Blanket and 3. All Colors Work Shawl  I’ll discuss my thought process in more detail after I get the poll results.  I don’t want to bias the voting!

Ides of March

It’s the Ides of March so I figure it’s a good day to share March’s yarn because, of course, it’s green!

And, I just had it photograph it on my St. Patrick’s Day table runner!  I knew as soon as we got the hint for March which what color it would be because I figured out the neighborhood.  This month’s neighborhood is Kamm’s Corners.  The is the western most area of the City of Cleveland and has strong Irish-Catholic roots.  It is home to many of the city’s police and fire force and is where the Cleveland Police and Firefighters’ Memorial is located.  Some of the old homes are beautiful and I always wonder what they look like inside.  The MetroParks runs through the area, including Little Met, one of the golf courses run by the park system.  It is also home to a couple of fine Irish pubs, including the Public House.

One last thing before I close this post – I was excited to see on Twitter the announcement of the 6th Annual Knitting & Crocheting Blog week which is organized by Eskimimi Makes.  This will be my third year to participate and it’s always a fun and challenging week.  Each year I find new bloggers to follow and new bloggers follow me.  More details to come!

And now, I have not had any knitting time in the past two days so I’m going to pull out a project and get to work.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all!
