It seems like I’m in somewhat of a blogging rut.
I’ve begun a post several times recently only to read what I’ve written and it all seemed like blah-blah-blah. Blogging avoidance ensued. Here I am now hemming and hawing because I still have only blah and more blah, but…
Summer fun…in about two weeks we leave for India for some holidaying – weeee!!! It’s going to be fun to hang out with the fam and not do anything much other than, well, hang out!
Knitting fun…still working on my Printed Silk Cardigan and still loving it:) I’m done with the back and working one of the sleeves. The sleeves are done in 1×1 rib and let me tell you I’m not a big fan of knitting ribbing in any permutation because of all the flipping of the yarn back and forth.
This is the thing, I can usually multi-task on the knit stitch. Not any mammoth multi-tasking like um…knitting, preparing dinner and juggling at the same time, but the plain old TV-read-knit kind. You know everyone does that right? But those purls, now, I gotta look at my knitting to purl. So, you see how ribbing is not my thing?
Ribbing sure makes the fabric look lovely though and I have to admit that I knit Audrey a couple years ago and come to think of it, that baby is completely ribbed! But then again, the yarn was Rowan Calmer which is so gorgeous. Here’s the beginning of the ribbed sleeve with the finished back (sorry ’bout the blurry pic)
Off to plod along on my ribbed sleeve.
See, I told you all I had was blah!
