As I've mentionned before, it is my goal to finish my current projects before I start new ones (though the fair isle sock doesn't count as a current project, I'm still not sure I'll ever finish it, let alone its twin). To keep me motivated, I joined this:
I invite all of you who want to finish those beautiful objects to join too!
I was hoping to post progress pics, but I'm at my mom's for the weekend and I forgot my camera. But here's an update anyways:
Mariah: Things are going well, but I have to tell you, those yoke rows are going a lot slower than I expected. Of course there's over 300 stitches on the needles (the good news is that I decrease every right side row). I'm not sure I'll finish it before the end of my holidays, but I'll try.
Kiri: I worked on it today during the hour long bus ride to my mom's. I love that thing, which is good because it's going to be almost the only thing I'll work on after I finish Mariah.
I say *almost* because of course I'll need to cast on a pair of socks (or maybe I'll go with slippers) so I have something to bring to knitting meetups. But new socks don't count as new projects (as long as I don't have more than one OTN, fair isle socks non included).
I got an email from Elann this week about a sale on this nice hemp yarn. I was very tempted since I remember a beautiful pattern made with hemp in a back issue of Interweave. I resisted, though, because I have many things on my dream knit list already. The colour I wanted (raspberry) is all gone anyways.
I'll end this post by saying that I love the orange sweater on the front of the new Knit Simple. Love it.
