I started a new project and I didn’t even have the decency to blog about it. I don’t know what came over me. Sorry ’bout that. I solemnly swear not to do this again.
The project? A sweater. And, as promised, I am using my new Knit Picks harmony wood interchangeable circs. These are a pure joy to work with. Smooth join, flexible cable and all that. But, I digress. The sweater is actually Rusted Root designed by Sarah & Rachel of Zephyr Style. Originally, I had planned on making this sweater in the yarn that is specified in the original, but after seeing this Rowan Cashsoft dk at my LYS on sale during their boxing day sale, I decided that it would be the perfect yarn. I was right. Although I am not getting row gauge, I am getting stitch gauge, so no problems there. I started this on Friday and am satisfied with how quickly it is knitting up. Yay.
I also finished the second clue of the SOTS II KAL. That makes me only six days behind. With only 75 odd rows to go to finish the third clue and 2 days to get there, I am thinking that some sort of miracle might have to happen for me to get caught up on time. I’d blame the weekend away if it weren’t so dang awesome.
Otherwise, I am just going to keep plugging away at the UFO’s on my needles and trying to get those WIP’s down to a number under five. I think this should be a manageable goal…
