I don’t know how June seems to be flying by and before I know it summer will be over. I’M NOT READY! And as summer keeps moving on my queue keeps getting longer and longer of what I want to make. Add on me casting on projects when they tickle my fancy and well…that explains why I never get everything I want accomplished.
I know I keep putting my Togue Pond Tank to the side but I think it’s because I know it will knit up quickly. Maybe this weekend I will give it the attention it needs. In the meantime, I’ve separated for sleeves on my cotton Guthrie and am going to try it on this evening to make sure it has enough stretch to get over my head. I’ll be so sad if it’s too tight because it’s working up so nicely. But this is one gamble of knitting colorwork with cotton and isn’t there always a lesson in each project?
But can we just talk about how much I love seeing the neat floats on the inside of colorwork? It makes my heart sing. I’m mildly obsessed with Guthrie and I swear this is the face Cher gives me when I’m super focused on that sweater when I should be focused on her.
And this is the face Jellybean gives me every time I tell her about something else I’m adding to my queue.
I’m also still thinking about doing a knitalong of the Tecumseh sweater, maybe starting in early September? I can slow down and work on it at a reasonable pace and show progress and share your pics of your progress too. I don’t have any prizes or anything, it’s just a pattern I love and many of you have shown interest in wanting to make it too so I thought we’d do it together. Still interested? What hashtag could we create to make sharing easy? I’ve already decided what colors I will use and I’ve stashed them away. Clearly I’m excited about colorwork.
