Recently people have been telling me I knit too much, and you know sometimes I think they are right. But you know I always have my knitting. So here is what is going on in my knitting world because though I have been absent again from blogging, I have not quite knitting no matter how many times I have been told I knit too much.
This past Sunday I finished my different lines shawl, and well I love it! It is just so pretty and the Luna Grey yarn though it started out a little rough once I washed it, it softened right up. The pattern was super easy to follow also, overall great yarn and great project.
I will try to get some non-camera phone pictures as soon as possible.
I was only able to do 13 stripes because I would have run out of yarn doing the 14th, but other than that I couldn’t be happier.
Since my last post besides finishing the shawl I also worked more on my abate and stated two other sweaters. The Pontos from the yarnaid and the ease from Alicia Plum.
Here’s the Ease, I absolute love it so far. This is my homework knitting project though so I only work on it while I’m reading textbooks.
Here’s the Pontos, so far it is rather enjoyable and has an easy mesh/lace pattern to follow.
Here’s the Abate which is for my niece. It is so close to being finished!
And just in case I don’t have too many projects or especially sweaters going I am planning on starting Amy Christophers Long Sands Cardigan in billow from Knitpicks.
The color is spearmint.
And when I think I knit too much I think about this quote:
“the desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.”
