I had a last-minute-notice trip, and my wips were all too big to pack in my carry-on. I grabbed my one ball of Potluck Bulky yarn (Cherry Tree Hill), size 13 needles, and the sketch/pattern for the Wrap Thingie by Strikkelise. The needles are bigger than recommended for the yarn, but by happy accident, the combination is lovely!

Any serendipity in your knitting adventures?

Cool! Can't think of anything off the top of my head.

But I do like that pattern/idea.

I took a shine to the pattern too, Linda. My winter coat has enough poufiness going on around the neckline, so I didn't want an actual cowl. This is more like a dickey and it is just what I wanted.

I generally shy away from things made with bulky yarn for some reason, but I like the look of that....and downloaded the pattern. Would make a lovely quick gift.

It's not quite the same thing, but one of the first knitting classes I ever took just goes on and on, which feels like serendipity to me. It was twined knitting with Beth Brown Reinsel,and we learned to do these adorable twined knitted mitts. A friend of mine loved them, so I cemented my class by teaching her how to make them and knitting another pair. She's since then made several pairs, and I made up a hat pattern to match mine. Now I'm knitting mittens for the retreat. It's the most useful style of knitting--extremely warm, wears like iron, elegant. Perfect for the retreat veterans! Of course, it's super fun to do, too.

I love reading the comments here...always something new to learn. I googled twined knitting and now will have to try it. Thanks, Robinsteph!
