It’s been what feels like an incredibly long winter. Not a bad one by any means – While I miss the sunshine, I don’t mind the cold and snow/ice. And it has been so cold here in Baltimore, I’ve had to curtail Molly-the-dog’s walks which is frustrating for both of us. But we’re nearing the end of it and I’m exciting to see what Spring brings.
I’ve been focusing on some other areas of life lately, so I hadn’t been knitting as much as I would like and haven’t posted here since last November.
But the urge to create is back. With the help of my copy of “Vogue Knitting: The Ultimate Knitting Book”, I swatched, did some basic sweater math, and have cast-on a sweater-vest. Over the last week, I’ve only finished the bottom edge and approximately 7″ inches of the body. The progress is slow, but it is progress. And it feels good to knit again.
I’ve also been combing through the copies of “A Treasury of Knitting Patterns” and “A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns, the Barbara Walker books my mom and sister got me for Christmas. I’m so excited and have so many ideas! I’m going to create some new hats soon. Happy March.
