AiU is back in action!


After frustratingly ripping back my Audrey in Unst because I was missing a few stitches, I didn’t really want to look at it again for a while. I started some swatches for another cardigan. I wove in some ends on things. I sorted my yarn. I did some grading math. Basically I did anything I could to avoid starting over on the cardigan without casting on a new project. When it came time to pack for England, I stared a bit at my beat up old grey cardigan and decided that I should get cracking on my Audrey in Unst so I could leave my old sweater at home without a concern. I’m on the fourth ball of yarn now (I was at the third when I frogged) and am working on the body increases. It took me a while to get past where I had to frog because it had this dull I-already-did-this feeling to it. Now that I’m past that, it’s flying along. I’ve been working on it during dull lectures and during my film section for my Lit and Film course. We watched the Godfather this week. I got a lot of knitting done.

  1. I love the Godfather. In January, my husband and I decided to have Godfather marathon day before the semester started again. It was a great day.

    1. I really enjoyed it. We used it as an intro to film analysis because it’s so detail heavy that it’s easy to analyze. I can’t imagine all the thought and effort that went in to making it.

  2. Congrats on getting re-started! It’s always so difficult to reignite motivation once you get stalled.

  3. You scared me into finishing my swatch and you also made me realize I need to suck it up and re-knit my owl sweater! After the one I have queued of course 🙂

    So jealous you’re in England, I’ve been three times and will be going again next year. Everything’s so green!!!

  4. It’s such pretty yarn.. your cardi will be lovely when it’s finished 🙂 Hang in there!

  5. My Audrey in Unst has been languishing for ages now, although I finally finished the shoulders last week. I wonder if the Godfather trilogy would get me through an arm?

  6. […] Aunt’s house. I can’t decide which sweater to bring to work on during the train ride. Audrey in Unst or that other one? What do you think? November 24, 2010 | Andi | No Comments […]
