Also known as 'structured procrastination', this involves doing something beneficial while delaying more important things. Perhaps you're supposed to write a report but instead answer emails. Or you're cleaning out the junk drawers rather than preparing dinner for guests who are arriving in an hour. You're keeping yourself busy by tackling lots of to-do's while avoiding the one, big to-do that has to be done. PRODUCTIVELY PROCRASTINATING is named in your honor.
I teamed up with Corrine Walcher, a knitwear designer, and she wrote a gorgeous, flowy, short-sleeved sweater pattern using the Productively Procrastinating colorway on the Serama Bamboo base. She is wearing the sweater in the pictures below. You may purchase the pattern directly from her.
Shown on the Serama Sock and Serama Bamboo bases.

For best results, handknit items should be handwashed in tepid water and laid flat to dry. Superwash yarn CAN be washed in the machine on a gentle cycle (but not advised), then laid flat to dry.
Yarn dyeing is done at home in my back room and air-dried by God. We are a non-smoking home with a cat that roams around our back room and yard. He is afraid of the dyeing equipment and special care is taken so that he does not get onto the yarn - he's too old and arthritic to jump up on the table anyway.
Due to the nature of hand-dyed yarns being unique, the skein you receive may vary slightly from the photo shown. If you have questions about the skein, please contact me and I will answer any questions you may have.
