An Explanation and a New Project

I started this blog yesterday as a way to post my first knitting pattern on Ravelry (hurrah for me!).  I'll work more on the appearance and design of this page when I find some inspiration.  I'm also going to try to post somewhat regularly, as I recently watched Julie & Julia for a second time and feel motivated to move into the blogosphere. 

In the meantime, I also want to slow down on my knitting projects and get back to other activities, like reading and painting. 

Having said that, I recently purchased this variegated bamboo dk at Stitches South and am trying to decide between making a tee/tank or summer scarf.  I don't really have enough yardage to do both, so its decision time.  I'm a bit worried that the color change might be a bit busy for a top, but I do like how the colors blend when this yarn knits up.  I think I might try a top - and if I don't like it, I can frog it and make a scarf instead :)
