Soooo, I began this collar yesterday from the spring issue of Vogue Knitting. I'm making it in a lovely kelly green (in honor of St. Patrick's day).
Since I'm determined to work on creating something each day, I put the yarn, magazine and needles into my purse and brought it along with me for dinner with my family...and then proceeded to get totally distracted, lose track of where I was and mess up my pattern. I had to unravel it all (cussing the whole time..well, my brand of cussing..which usually involves words like "holy peanuts!" and "son of a biscuit"). I think maybe I need to put the yarn down for a little bit and try a different project. Though my sewing and jewelry making projects may not be as portable, they might be a welcome respite as they come a little easier to me.
Perhaps I'll start an embroidery project..that should travel fairly easily!
I'll keep you posted on my progress, and I will certainly be revisiting this collar because I'm totally head over heels for it ;)
Hugs and Smooches,
