When was the last time you saw a bit of knitting on this blog? About two weeks ago I posted a finised project, but haven't talked about "in progress" knitting for quite a long time. It's easy to talk about knitting when there is something to share, something to see, but I'm a little at loose ends and can't seem to settle on any one thing.
Sweaters have been started, swatches of a couple more are in progress, ideas for other projects are churning, but nothing feels settled. The sweater, which now has a sleeve and part of a body, doesn't feel right...there may be a size problem, but I'm not sure! Swatches lie, but Summer Tweed lies more and knitting with it is always a crap shoot. Maybe I'm not in the mood for gambling. Swatching for other sweaters as created an even bigger case of indecision. I'm at knits end or wits end or something.
The one project I had on the needles decided to not play nice. Actually, it's all my fault. There was a bit of hubris at the beginning because I did not read the pattern correctly. Much frogging ensued. The scarf/shawl forgave the hubris and we are now back on track. At the moment, continued growth of this project is the only certain thing in my knitting bag. (Well, that's not quite true as I also have a sock in progress and when I give it quality time, it grows, too. Just very, very slowly.)
