Sorry about the radio silence. It’s been quite the… well, let’s just say it’s been a surprising week.
Knitting has happened, of course. Spurred on by Sil’s fab Tangled Yoke, I finished the main part of the body. It’s been pretty sloggy so far, but this feels like a big milestone. Now, just the bottom part of the sleeves before I can join the whole thing and get to the fun part!
I think this is going to be a cardigan I wear a lot, and I hope to have it finished in time to wear it to Rhinebeck. I’m flying back East and going to the festival for the first time this year, with my favorite partner in yarny crime. I’m so excited I can barely even stand it!
Despite spending less than half the time on the Waterlily top than I have on Tangled Yoke, I’m nearly as far.
This is an interesting project, if nothing else. It’s weird knitting on such enormous needles, and the “yarn” doesn’t always act like such. But I do like the fabric it’s producing, and you know what? It’s really good to stretch my boundaries a little. If nothing else, I’m enjoying the process.
My other fun knitting news is that the sign-ups are open for the next Stitches West, and I’m treating myself to a weekend of classes, this year. I’m taking a bunch on pattern modification and design, and I’m really looking forward to it. If anyone else decides to go, definitely let me know. Between this and Rhinebeck, I have two whole weekends of relaxing knitting to look forward to. How did I get so lucky?!
