It appears that knitting season has begun. After a summer hiatus, I find myself once again trolling Ravelry, plotting and planning, rearranging my queue, and re-visiting started projects that have lost steam. It's not that I don't knit at all during the summer, in fact, I actually managed to finish a couple things. There was the pink lace shawl, and then this past weekend, a little red sweater came off the needles, had a bath, and got some pretty, vintage pearl buttons. I haven't taken the time to take more than an Instagram photo, however. There's no time for photography, I just want to knit right now!
It's actually just a little snug, but should fit nicely when another few pounds are gone. I'm pretty proud of myself for actually finishing a couple projects this summer. I don't feel like I spent hours and hours sitting and knitting, it was really just a matter of doing a row here and there when I had a few spare minutes. Big things can be accomplished one row at a time!
So, does anyone have any big knitting plans? Once my red sweater was done, I immediately cast on this sweater, using some mystery wool from the first sweater I ever made. It wasn't a successful project, but it was a learning experience, so I don't feel bad about unraveling all my hard work. I think the yarn suits this sweater much better.
I also succumbed to temptation and pre-ordered Coastal Knits. I am a huge fan of cardigans, and I love every one in this collection, but I also really like the Cambrian Cowl and the Rustling Leaves hat.
And then there are all the socks I want to knit, and I could use a nice slouchy, comfy pullover, and I don't have any lace currently on the needles, so that situation needs to be fixed. I think I better plan on a few knitting weekends for the next couple months! Okay, turning off the computer now, so I can get knitting!
