It seems that Wednesdays are my day to post in August. It’s been nice to get back on a some-what regular posting schedule. [Not having a huge audience reading this blog helps since I do not feel the pressure to perform that more popular bloggers do. I can fall off the planet for weeks at a time and not receive a barrage of, “Are you OK?!” emails.]
I have not been taking a lot of time to knit this last week, but this is what I have done so far. I decided to cast-on…
Color Affection. I thought I was ready to work on a sweater after all of the small projects I’ve done, but I was mistaken. A shawl it is. So far, it’s a really easy and mindless knit. Seriously: of the 4 pages of pattern, the actual directions take up fewer than 2 dozen lines…maybe 1/3 of a page. It’s simple but clever, something I’ve grown to appreciate in a pattern. If I find this wearable, I have about a half-dozen more color combinations already picked out and ready to go. Heh.
I guess we’ll see how I feel when I hit the point where each row is like slow, agonizing death. 🙂
