There has to be a word for it. The phenomenon of having a song stuck in your head that replays incessantly and won’t be chased away.
… For purple mountains’ majesty / Above the fruited plain …
As I knit football field after football field of garter stitch of this
brand-spankin’-new Spirit Trail Fiberworks yarn, Brigantia, in the colorway Persian Nights, I can’t get this line sung by elementary-school voices out of my addled head.
It is the perfect recreation of Crayola blue-violet of my childhood. I always loved that color. There’s a lot of it in my garden.
23 (growing) rows of garter to go before applying the lace border.
Maybe then the song will stop.
Please, let the song stop.
I don’t want the knitting to stop, mind you. In fact, I feel a love affair coming on. A rather torrid affair with this Polwarth-silk blend, truth be told. It’s so new you can’t buy it on the website yet, but if you’re coming to Maryland Sheep and Wool, you can find Brigantia ~ even this particular piece in Brigantia ~ there.
Maybe I just need more of it in a different colorway to get the damn song out of my head!
Yeah, that’s the ticket. Stashing for sanity.
