Palate Cleanser – a neutral flavored element in
foodknitting that enables to clear the palate from one flavorproject to another (source: Wikipedia, with my edit).
My knitting projects right now were both meant to be palate cleansers of sorts, after my two-month long stint with Cascades. I cast on a gorgeous shawl in some gorgeous yarn and I picked up the languishing Hualpa Kimono. They were meant to be knit up quickly and be a bit of close-to-instant gratification in my knitting realm.
This really only works if one actually knits the items intended to be knit quickly. Sadly, my wrist pain has returned and my knitting has slowed considerably as a result. Not only does this result in boring blog posts for you, it also makes for a cranky knitter who still carries her projects around with her on the off chance that she’ll be able to will them into existence.
So, cue more stretching and resting and wishing the things would knit themselves. What are you working on this week?
