I tried to be faithful, I really did.
After finishing my Lenore socks, I decided I needed to face my wips. I only had 3, and I thought surely they would keep me entertained until after The Move. I thought forcing myself to knit on these already started projects would do me some good and clear the decks for some inspired fall knitting.
It lasted 2 days.
I tried to focus on my Hamamelis shawl, I really did! But the charts and lace don’t make for good relaxing in front of a movie knitting for me, and that’s really all I have room for right now. The good news is, I did make some progress on it before going on a cast-on spree. Another of my wips wasn’t so lucky…
I have been vacillating over what to do with my long-languishing Hemlock Ring blanket for months. I was pretty sure it wasn’t going to get finished, yet something wouldn’t allow me to rip out all that lovely knitting. Then one day I was casually browsing projects on Ravelry when Sweetie noticed what I was looking at. Those are cool, she said, looking at some colorwork mittens. Knowing she likes owls, I said: I bet there’s something similar with owls on them. A few clicks later we had decided on a pair of cabled owl mittens, and a matching owlet sweater for Peaceful Baby. Suddenly I knew what all that Malabrigo would be good for, and it was very easy to rip out!
I also cast on a little something for PB to protect her tender knees during all the crawling she’s been doing. This project is knitting up super fast, and I should be finished after the weekend. Have a good one!
