Happy Wednesday! I’m delighted to be joining in with Kat and friends to talk about knitting. and even happier that I have two no-longer-blobs to share. First up, here’s Sam’s purple cardigan. The knitting is done, but I still have to seam the sleeves, weave in a bazillion ends, sew on buttons and block.
Charlie’s pullover still needs a sleeve and then the knitting is done there, too (ditto the bazillion ends and the blocking).
I’m knitting a size 8-10 for him (his mama measured a sweatshirt and I decided I’d go ahead and knit it extra roomy so he’d have it for longer), with slightly shorter body and sleeves … still, it doesn’t fit flat on the chair seat and wow it seems like just yesterday that his whole self fit into a corner of that chair!
The sun did come out today, but the window behind the chair faces east. I promised Bonny I’d share a photo of my “photography set” today, too.
I purchased a set a Lightroom presets for my iPhone with the Black Friday sales and I’m really pleased so far. It looks like there is bright sunshine pouring through those windows, right?! nope! it was 4pm and nearly dark out… with a lamp on.
So … progress, without any unraveling on the actual knitting front. But my queue and purchasing self-control have been sincerely challenged by all this knitting the instagram, emails and blog posts I’ve “caught up on” while I’ve procrastinated the knitting.
I guess I should be glad it’s only three patterns, and actually, that middle one was inspired by Espace Tricot’s latest podcast. which I knitted through.
I have a lovely queue – and the yarn to knit it! – waiting for me just as soon as I finish that second sleeve (and all those other finishing steps). Still. I’m tempted.
How do you handle this kind of temptation? all suggestions welcome!
…and now off to start that sleeve 🙂
