I’m resisting casting on for another project with my delicious Tart with the Olympics just round the corner.
(don’t these babies look so yum)
I don’t want to tackle something as large as a sweater right now. Also, anything that I’ve swatched for lately doesn’t seem right. Somehow my stitches are loose, and I mean REALLY loose. To get gauge, I would need to go down 3 or 4 needle sizes and so I wait…until I get my swatch mojo back. There IS a swatch mojo, right?
This floppy knit and purl has got to be from the lace knitting that I have on my needles. Yes, I’m back with the lace and my drug of choice this time has been this beauty.
To even things out, I’ve got another very interesting knit on the needles. A second shawl and this time by the very talented Lily Kate. I think she’s only 12 (or maybe 13) years old!!!!! I’ve found the perfect pattern for my funky Fleece Artist yarn.
There have been plenty of other goings-on in these parts but somehow I only seem to talk about knitting. We still get out every weekend if it’s not too wet and I have to say that over the past couple months it has rained only two Saturdays, la dee dah! Our most recent traipsing around was over here. Will share more next time.
