Since when... I hold my working yarn like this?

Holding the yarn

I noticed this change started happening a few weeks back...but it wasn't consistent, and didn't feel "wrong" so I didn't stop.

But it JUST happens. No rhyme or reason. I'll be knitting happily along and viola...there it goes again!

This morning I noticed it on the train and quickly took a picture.


*Note: I'm knitting a pinwheel baby blanket for Evelyn. So far I'm up to 460 stitches...and on my 3rd ball of yarn. I'm thinking I'll get to 500sts and see where that leaves me. Has anyone ever done one of these? Any thoughts as to size/stitches? I'm thinking of working a couple rows in further bust the stash!

I took these photos for my 365 on Saturday. I figured out how to combine them in one excited when I learn new things! The really cool thing is that my grandmother made that sweater for me approx 20 years ago and I recently found it in one of my sweater bins. The colors might not be stylish (they weren't 20 years ago in fact) but it's cozy and reminds me of my Grandma who taught me how to knit.

That is great to have the sweater no matter what the color. Isn't if funny how we change our knitting habits after a while. I want to change the way I hold the working yarn but keep drifting back to my old way.

So are you a thrower? This new way of holding yarn could work for you it looks like!
Hey, gold is the "new black" this year so you are more with it than you thought!

Nothing better than a memory-sweater! Look at you go, the camera can't keep up!
