It’s all change around here at the moment, finishing up long-standing projects and starting to think about new ones.
This is my poor long-neglected Esmee cardigan. If you go on Ravelry, you’ll see that while this is a beautiful pattern, there were serious editorial problems, and I’ve pretty much had to make the pattern up as I go along. It stalled when I had to split for the sleeves, since at that point it was harder to carry around with me, but I really want to get it up, running and finished. Over lunchtime, I more or less finished the right front, now I just need to check it fits and write down what I did so I can finish the left! It goes incredibly fast once I actually concentrate and stitch, so I’m itching to get going on it again. Apart from anything else, I could really use a new cardigan!
The other time pressure, I’ve decided to take part in the summer sweater KAL over at Luvinthemommyhood. And no, I don’t have anything to tell you – Shannon’s site is just lovely, whether you’ve got children or not, and I liked the idea of stitching a garment along with other people.
Of course most of them will be knitting and I’ll be crocheting, but I’m fairly used to that now. I’m not 100% decided on what I’m going to make, but I’ve got it down to 3. Cameron, Luna or Northern Dreams. Whichever I make, I’ll probably be using Rowan pure wool 4ply in a light grey – anyone got any thoughts on what might look best?
