I was bored the other day so I thought of checking the Swatch website. Now, when I get bored the lengths I’ll go to amuse myself range from extreme (getting a tattoo) to mild (starting my 35th WIP). I think buying a watch leans towards the mild side. Besides, what are the odds of finding a watch that has a knitting pattern on it AND dropped stitches, I mean really? There was no likelihood of me resisting. Especially considering that it’s pretty accurate (although the hole in the pattern had to have been made by a virtual moth, the yarn bars are missing, but still good attempt).
My boredom was appeased for all of the 10 minutes of the purchase. What should I do next…? Then it hit me, I have yarn in almost the exact same colors from the Webs retreat a year ago. I was saving it for a cowl, why not make a matching watch/cowl combo? So I did and if anyone wants the pattern it’s in the pdf below.
BTW: The Valley Yarns Peru is AWESOME, it is so soft and it has amazing stitch definition.
Oh, and this is the watch: Amaglia
