I’m not trying to post really frequently, but I seriously had a knitting dream last night!
There were a lot of details in this dream–friends driving friends to get to dinner, deciding to turn back for no apparent reason, warnings of a cold that you could catch in windy conditions–but the knitting part:
I was at some kind of party. There were a lot of people milling about, and I was there with my boyfriend. An announcement was made, that I only vaguely heard, but I realized what it was saying: It was telling me who in the room I was supposed to knit a sweater for. I found her in the crowd: She had shoulder-length dark brown hair and was wearing a knitted red cardigan (I think it was my Pam, only in a vibrant deep red). I turned to the boy and whispered, “I’m going to have to knit a sweater for her. I should have already started it! And I don’t even have any yarn!” And he suggested I use my lateness as an opportunity to study her and decide what her personal style was so that I could make the perfect sweater for her. (Smart boy.)
So the last thing I remember from the dream was thinking hard about the “perfect” sweater for this woman who, in all honesty, resembled me! Guess it’s time to find a pattern for a really good sweater–not some simple stockinette thing, that’s for sure.
