Gaahhhh!!! I was hoping to have some knitting to post about by now. This blog just feels so strange if I don’t have any knitting for like a month. I blame two books for my lack of knitting posts:
Culprit #1: That would be The Knitter’s Book of Yarn. I have a smaller project that I keep meaning to cast on but I always end up reading this instead. It’s just fascinating.
Culprit #2: The other problem is that the big project that is getting worked on is from A Stitch in Time. It’s worked with four ply yarn and teeny tiny needles. Weirdly enough, this is my first project with four ply. I’ve been knitting for eight years and I have bags of four ply that people have given me and I’m only just now trying it out. The project is going a lot faster than I thought it would, partially because I converted the body to being in the round. I’m currently working on the back armhole shaping. I have the front shaping and sleeves left before I’ll have something to share. Some of you are probably wondering why I don’t share the WIP. The answer is that it’s a big cream blob right now. I haven’t gotten to the color work so it’s just boring pale stockinette at the moment.
The answer to this conundrum clearly is to add a few more hours in the day so that I can work on a second project. If only….
