It’s the end of the semester, which means it’s a bit chaotic. Spring semester has an urgency to it that the end of fall semester just doesn’t have. Couple that with spring fever in my students and man I’m ready for the semester to come to an end. But the end is near and I’m just weeks away from my first summer vacation in years. I cannot wait.
I also finished my second secret project I’ve been working on (yay!) which means I’m back to knitting for me. A while ago, pattern designer Hannah Fettig reached out to me and asked if I’d be interested in knitting her latest pattern, the Allison cardigan. She wanted to see it knit in color instead of greys and neutrals, so clearly she asked me HA! I like Hannah’s patterns and I love an open cardigan with pockets, so I said I’d knit it. I’m knitting it with Quince and Co. Owl yarn in the color Yucca, a yellow with bits of green and black in it. The color alone is making me happy. And even though it’s wool and I know Maryland is on the verge of being muggy city, we’re going to Chicago next month and it’s always sweater weather in Chicago so I look forward to wearing it there. I started it on Monday and I’m almost ready to separate for sleeves. I’m flying along and back to knitting what I really, really love – things for me with color! And since I’m knitting things I can share, you’ll get more progress and hopefully soon.
