Hello lovely people. How are you today? I'm nearly fully functional, if a bit scatter brained- per usual. Without the structure of monthly, self-imposed project goals, I feel I'm experiencing some knitting project ADD. I have numerous projects in progress, in varying degrees of completeness. I'm like a rubber ball on a staircase bouncing between them.
The latest project to join the parade is this _______. It's somewhat secret for the time-being. Any guesses what it might be?
As intended, I devoted a large chunk of Monday to sewing my Hollyburn. I'm down to the hand-finishing already! At some point this week (hopefully), I'll get that waistband fully secured, add the buttons to the tabs, and finish the hem. I didn't make it to the blouse, but I did get the fabric pre-washed, so it's ready whenever I feel inspired to start.
Then, there's the Fargo sweater I started. It needs another sleeve and some seaming. But, it's close.
I haven't stopped progress on my Oolong. Though, things have slowed to a crawl now that I'm seaming all those little stitches. Is it strange that I'm enjoying seaming this? It was a conscious choice to modify the pattern from its seamless, raglan design to a fully pieced, flat knitting project, but I didn't expect to find pleasure in the tedious act of mattress stitching a fingering weight sweater. Weird. I have one sleeve and the raglan remaining before I can pick-up and knit the collar.
Additionally, I have started sweaters for Dulce and Danger. They weren't excited about having to go outside naked yesterday while it was -2F. I think that's it. I'm probably missing something(s). What are you working on this week?
