While I knit the second front of Chicane, I'm dreaming about where to go once she's finished. At first, I thought looking ahead wasn't very process oriented as I always think of myself as a process knitter. However, isn't part of the process of knitting visualization and planning for a project? Precious knitting time could be lost if an idea hasn't been formulated and necessary supplies gathered. At least that's the story I've concocted, and I plan to stick with it (for now).Quill. The border I have worked on forever and ever, and may be working on forever and ever more, has an error that may not be able to be fudged. Before facing the miles of frogging, or figuring out what the long term repercussions of ignoring the mistake will be, I've decided to move on and knit something bright and cheery.
Cookie's red cashmere/silk handspun is calling to me, and while I'm worried about the delicacy of the yarn, I'm compelled to cast on. I've decided on Sweet Dreams by Boo Knits and, hopefully, I won't chicken out. The next sweater project in my dreams is Clayton from BT Winter 13. I have a yarn in my stash that could be suitable, but a swatch will need to be knit, washed and blocked before any true decision is made. I may take time to cast on and begin that part of the process, as I want to be prepared to take the next step.
On another note, I'm ridiculously bummed that Google ran off and abandon Google Reader well before the announced date of demise. I was already in a state of grief over loosing my iGoogle page and seeing Reader die has left me with a real feeling of abandonment.Will Google be a nail in the coffin of blogs everywhere? Feeds can be exported and imported into other readers, but I'm not sure how many followers will bother. While I've tried Bloglovin' and Bloglines, I've settle on Feedly, which isn't perfect, but it is easier to organize my feeds than with the two other readers. I hope you find something that works for you and you'll still come by to read my blog.
