Crazy Over You

“Every time I dream that were together;
knowing just how much I really love you;
you step into the room and steal my heart away;
can I live this dream just one more day?

About The Name

Desire by U2

I believe it was a random selection from which I received a “feeling” that kind of match my passion for the colors in this yarn. Based on that “feeling,” Desire was ignited.

About Desire

As I previously stated, I’ve heard many knitters express their passion for knit linen stitch and then turn around and complain about the slow progress of the stitch due to slipping every over stitch.

As a continental knitter, the slipping back and forth did not not bother me and I think because I am in learning mode and was working through some major family drama, I was set in knit mode during the last three days. I too ❤ love the knit linen stitch, and I find the purl side extremely appealing for it’s texture.

I’ve always liked Noro. This is my first all Noro project and I am loving it. The other day, I put the scarf around my neck and I instantly felt cozy. At that moment, Desire became mine. Because of the content, I was able to join one skein to the other with a little water and hand twisting. And the colors blend so well.

Desire Scarf: Ignition

Having finished Hey, Saint Peter yesterday, I was in a pinch to have something to work on at my guild meeting, in addition to packing gift for Miss Fox. I grabbed the last two skeins from that bin I’ve been telling you about – Yes, now empty! Bells! Whistles! 😀 – and pretty much was out the door for my eight-dollar Uber.

At the guild, I looked up the knit stitch – keeping in line with my learning theme – I’d never stitched the linen stitch. I’d heard that it can be tedious and slow-going. I cast on at the guild yesterday and did a few rows when I got home. I am happy with my progress and don’t mind the back and forth, which I may account for the tedious comments.

The funny thing for me is that no matter how loose I knit – and believe me I am “trying” because I feel like my tension is so loose – the fabric is even and snug. ❤ ❤ ❤

Desire – artist to be revealed in final post – was another random play choice from my music library. It’s such a passionate song – and under the right influence, an anthem – that the passion matches my pleasure at the fabric that this Noro yarn will create. I chose the word ignition over cast on because desire is ignited.

At least I think it’s Noro. I could’ve sworn I saw one label, but I don’t see it handy right now and I don’t want to have to make corrections to this post, so let’s leave it for further clarification, okay?
