Wow! I’ve been horrible about posting lately. I have no excuse.
How’s your summer been? Mine has been hectic. I took a part-time job – like many college graduates, I’ve a lot of debt left over from school. Oh well! I like the part-time job, but I no longer have days off. That really doesn’t cause a problem, except in cuts into my yarn-crafting time!
I have finished quite a few projects this summer, even with the reduced time. Or maybe I should say, I’m working on finishing things. I’ve only finished 3 since May – a modified version of February Lady knitted in Belfast Linen from Kraemer Yarns, a baby hoodie knit in Cascade’s Cherub Aran yarn and a pair of Saartje’s Baby Booties in Cascade’s Cherub DK. Oh! And a pair of brown socks in Cascade Heritage, a skein of yarn I’ve been trying to get made into a pair of socks since 2010 (dark brown yarn is not fun to knit with!).
I’ve also been trying to finish my Evenstar shawl – the one I started last June! I’m on the beaded border – and making slow but steady progress. And I’ve joined the sleeves on my niece’s tunic that she designed and asked me to knit for her. I think I’ve got the math worked out right for the asymmetrical neck decreases (I think neck down would have been better – then all this difficult part would be down and I would’ve been plowing through the stockinette! Live and learn!).
I’ve (unfortunately?) cast on new projects too. A friend gave me some beautiful handspun BFL that screamed for entrelac, and the pattern Dreambird has been screaming at me to make it for a friend who will be visiting this fall, so I cast it on too.
Anyone know a good shrink who can help with the disorder of wanting to knit everything?
(I’ll post pictures on another post. I’m having issues getting the posts the way I want it after the last upgrade. Time to play with formatting!)
