I was not a very happy knitter this weekend. One of my projects completely misbehaved, and then the cats helped it misbehave more. Needless to say, that project was tossed up onto the time-out shelf, and I haven’t gone near it since.
I finished something! I’m quite pleased! Aside from the sweater, it feels like it’s been so long since I had an FO.
I took a break from knitting during lunches at work lately to walk, but the past few days have been a tad rainy. With no waterproof shoes, I decided maybe it’s time to stay in and knit a little. My pick? Some warm, comfy socks.
I promise I will blog about more than just my sweater in the coming weeks, but I would not be lying if I said I am completely obsessed with this project. Despite not being garter or stockinette, this sweater has become my mindless knitting. I crave time with it while at work, and I have to force myself to set it down to go to bed each night.
The 30 Day Sweater Challenge officially began this week on Tuesday! So far, 4559 people have joined the challenge so far, and I am one of them.
After a couple weeks of hard work and a little grief, the monkey is getting ever closer to being complete. I had my doubts, especially after having to redo the scarf, but I’m happy with the results so far. I’m down to just needing the finishing touches.
I’ve done something quite unheard of in this house. I have been monogamous (ish) with a project. The result was amazing progress on the monkey!
Leading into October, I’m trying to wrap up any projects that have a deadline. Luckily, there are now only two: a monkey and a hat. I figured the best place to start would be with the most complicated project.
That’s technically not the title of the project I’m working on, but if you were to look in my copy of Jane Austen Knits 2011, that’s exactly what you’d see. My husband drew a neat little line through the name “Frederick” and added his own.
