Once again, work has gotten in the way of important knitting! Oh well, work is fun too.
There has been time for knitting, but not at the pace I would like. Here’s the status of my Lilac Haze Tee:
I should have the back finished tomorrow … maybe the front will be finished by next weekend?
I spent a lot of time knitting, ripping and knitting the row which transitions from knitting in the round to knitting flat. Frankly, I couldn’t (can’t) see how the pattern would work as it’s written. I found a way to proceed, more on that in the final notes.
Interesting challenge ahead: 3-needle bind-off. That’s gonna be a new one for me. I look forward to it!
This latest project is made from organic cotton … Simply Cotton in the Haze Heather colorway (organic cotton from Knit Picks). The pattern is “Summer Tee Top” by Claudia Olson, a free download on Ravelry. After getting gauge, I reduced the CO by 28 stitches. I don’t know if this will result in the desired 36″ size and just the right amount of negative ease … or another gift for someone else (wah! I want to wear it myself!). Anyway, the suspense will keep me knitting, ha ha!
I actually have completed both the tweed sweater and the fuzzy scarf … EXCEPT for the finishing steps. A tiny bit of weaving in will finish the sweater and all I have to do is bind off the scarf. For some reason, I don’t want to take them off the needles. Maybe I’m just not interested in wool and mohair now that the snowdrops and witch hazel are blooming!
