Here we are, almost halfway through June. Wasn't it just February? This weekend is the Shakespeare Festival, so I needed something to work on that was simple enough to knit while watching the play. The play this summer is Macbeth, and I'm hoping to see it a couple of times before the weekend is over.
This is my mum's Rocky Coast Cardigan by Hannah Fettig, and I can already tell it's going to be a fun knit. I fell hard for this pattern as soon as it came out and queued it instantly. Last fall though, I went through and did a really massive de-queueing in Ravelry, forcing myself to be honest about what I wanted to knit and what I would actually wear and use. I probably wouldn't wear this cardigan very much, but I still wanted to knit it. Fortunately, Mum liked the pattern, and I get to knit it for her! So far it's been a straightforward little knit, and once the raglan increases are done it will go even more smoothly. And since I'm starting it now, it will be ready and waiting for her when fall hits. Am I good at this planning thing or what?
