One of my goals this trip was to get my projects cast on. Starting a new project takes extra time and attention, and it’s my least favorite part so I avoid it. Here are all my knitting WIPs.
These sweaters are all in a good place to pick up and carry on knitting.
Celtic Myths Shawl – I started the edging.
Midnight Merino Raglan – this has been the easiest to work on and I will probably knit this on the trip home.
I inherited a new machine. It was my Grandmother’s last machine before she passed away. This is timely since my machine is having tension issues.
Hit the gauge smack on for The Oa and I love these colors! Now I’m supposed to knit it again in a smaller needle size, and I suppose I should do as I’m told, but you know I want to cast on the sweater now.
I am still making good progress on Celtic Myths. It won’t be long before it’s cabled knotwork time!
It’s Saturday and I don’t have to work and I might knit on the couch in my pjs all day.
ETA: My first version of this post was a little snarky. I felt bad about it so I deleted all that nonsense, but if you subscribe to my posts via email you get the original, unfiltered for snark version. Bob calls this “the real Alissa” and saves these posts for posterity.
It was just me grumbling about Instagram fatigue and how I should have artfully strewn flower petals in my knitting photos.
My Celtic Myths shawl is coming along. I love the colors. It’s an intuitive knit so far, which I like, and easy screen time knitting. Right now we’re enjoying Kingdom, which is a South Korean zombie show!
