I am a ridiculous person

reknitting the first sleeve

I haven’t had all that much time to knit this week, but I have at least reached elbow-length on the Sleeve That Was Ripped Out By Mistake.

Elbow-length on reknit sleeve, the first.

But that’s not what this post is about. See, my ukulele orchestra is going to be performing in my church’s Spring Equinox services next weekend, and I found out last weekend that we are supposed to wear something yellow. I have nothing in my wardrobe that is yellow, so like any Completely Normal and Reasonable Person, my first thought was: “Oooh, I bet I could get some yellow yarn and knit a Willow Cowl!”

I am a ridiculous person

So I used a gift card I had and picked up a skein of Tosh Merino Light in “Candlewick”. There’s a reason I don’t have anything yellow in my wardrobe, but of all the yellows out there, I kinda like the golden, slightly-greenishness of the “Candlewick” colorway. So…yeah, I’m gonna knit an entire cowl because of one concert. A totally Normal, Reasonable Thing To Do.

I am ridiculous.

Yes, indeed, I am a ridiculous person! But in my defense, I do need a small, portable project to bring with me next week, when I’ll be presenting at the CCCC 2019 conference down in Pittsburgh, and I know from last year that I can knit an entire cowl while at this conference, so I think my prospects of finishing are actually pretty good!
