Happy Wednesday, my friends – I am delighted to be sharing some Joy with y’all this week!
Yes, I know my posts are often full of joy 🙂 and this week my needles are too … behold … Joy
This sweet lace cardigan designed by Veera Välimäki has been in my must-knit queue for almost two years (when my sweet friend Deena picked up a signed copy of Interpretations Vol. 5 at the Hill Country Weavers retreat in March 2018). And a few weeks back, I realized I had the perfect yarn for it – Plucky Solo Fingering in the prettiest ballet pink. At the time, that yarn was languishing in a hibernating project … so I unraveled. soaked. hung to dry … and started Joy. I actually cast on Friday afternoon and got the twisted ribbing started so I could enjoy knitting in front of the fire on Saturday.
More Joy – I’m making good progress without any unraveling. The increases are done, I’ve separated the sleeves, the lace is under control (I won’t memorize this pattern, but I will be able to knit in low light while watching TV) … relatively smooth sailing now.
More joy – The Florida socks are making me happy! (I’m sure they’ll make my mom happy, too.)
And I finished another amazing book. Tell Me More by Kelly Corrigan. Based on what I see in Goodreads, I know I’m late to the party (again). I’ve added this one to my “must read” shelf; so if you haven’t read it, please do!
That’s all I’ve got for updates … thank you Kat for hosting our meet-up!
