Thanks for introducing me to the Twist Collective. Their patterns are fabulous! And so is your cowl. Isn't that yarn lovely and soft. Happy knitting with the rest of your cardi.

I agree about the gift knitting - most people don't appreciate handknits the way we do. Glad you're back on track with the sweater and I love your new cowl!

no slogging!
what do you think of the manos silk blend?

I'm glad the sweater survived! Love the colors of the cowl!

We all need reminders about maintaining the joy in knitting. Thank you. I also believe your new cowl is absolutely gorgeous and I hope it's for you. You deserve it!

Your new cowl looks deliciously warm. Since our nasty cold snap this week, I'm all about the warm.

You know....I am interested to see how that sweater turns out. I had originally looked at it instead of the one I am knitting and at this moment, I am happy I chose the other one. ;)

Do love the gray yarn.

Wait a minute - you mean no part of knitting something should be a slog? That sleeves oughtn't to be the overcooked veggies we must eat on the way to getting the dessert of a finished sweater? You have much more patience than I do; I can stand about two weeks of knitting on a project, but just about the time the sleeves come along, I am bored to tears with the whole thing and want desperately to knit something, anything else.

Sigh...I have so far to go.

NaKniSweMo: The Adventure! Whew! What an update! Everything is looking beautiful, though. I really liked the wisdom in the Twist Collective article, too!

Love both the article and the cowl..The Manos was a perfect choice of yarn.
I haven't purchased that pattern yet..but it has been on my 'to do list'..today..maybe if I get upstairs to my other computer.

You know...I frequently get in trouble for thinking I know better than the designers...

Amen on knitting only what you enjoy! I think 2008 is my own year of the frog for that very reason!

I have to say that your sweater was the One that appealed to me most in the book, but it keeps falling farther down my list with each installment of your story! On the other hand, I do have a few people in my family who really like my handknits. And then there is that in-law who lives out near you.....

You need a light tent for that sweater. ;) I LOVE the cowl!

Thank you very much. Now I have ANOTHER thing I must knit before Christmas.

That cowl is gorgeous.

Love the cowl.. now for some time.

Gorgeous cowl, and I know that cardi will be worth the effort- the sample from the book is stunning and it looks like you've whipped that KidSilk into submission. Smooth knitting ahead!

Good for you for ripping back and continuing....a lesser person (me...LOL) would have tossed it aside. This is going to be a GREAT sweater when you are finished!

To me,sweater and slog are synonymous. Wait, is that you spell synonymous?

I still like the colors - beautiful against your rock garden. I'm hoping for a good outcome for you too tho!

You were inspired to slog on by my Sabine sweater adventure. Admit it.

I'm a moderation kind of grrl. Some slog, mostly joy. Seems more consistent with knitting life.

The cowl colors are wonderful on you.

Lovely, Margene. And I couldn't agree more about knitting for others. High effort, often with low reward.


I always feel better when I give in and rip back too. Lovely cowl, Margene.

Heh. I just finished my cowl.

You are so right, and that's why I'm ignoring that little voice in my head that says "must knit socks for everyone before xmas!" That's crazy talk.
