So I received this chunky wool yarn from a knit picks mystery box, and I didn't know what to do with it. I don't buy chunky yarn much; my stash is full of worsted and fingering weights. But I wanted to use it, and since my last two knits had been really disappointing, I decided that I would knit something fun, free and easy with this yarn. I knew that my box of Christmas yarn was coming and that a difficult project was looming, so quick, easy and fun seemed the right choice.
I searched the Ravelry pattern database and found this cute pattern called Wee Fast. And thus my own wee fast was created, all in three hours and mostly knitted in nap time. I love it! The pattern was easy, free, and also simple. I love how the yarn pooled, and I love the soft colors. Definitely a win/win. Also, no sleeves. I love no sleeve patterns. Easy. I didn't realize I hated picking up stitches, but apparently I do.
After knitting this, I felt refreshed and ready to tackle something harder.
