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?

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

Reminder to myself: PROVISIONAL cast on for EVERYTHING except toe-up socks.

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 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.

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.

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

But I do like that pattern/idea.
