I've been making steady progress on my mum's Sweatshirt Sweater-sleeve 1 is done, sleeve 2 is off to a good start, and I should be able to cast on for the body later this week. I'm hoping to get this done pretty quickly (well, for a sweater) since it's starting to get cold out. Plus, Leah and Teresa are having another KAL for people who've pre-ordered Great Northern, and I've got a hankering for a Filled With Secrets. So I really need to get mum's sweater done before I can feel good about dropping everything for a selfish sweater.
I'm kind of in a rough mood with some of my knitting projects right now. I can't bring myself to look at my pink shawl after realizing I'm going to have to tear out a bunch of it, so that's going to have to get boxed up for a while. I've got tons of other projects on the needles, but something about having to tear out hours and hours of lace just really puts a damper on everything. For now, the plain sweater is good company, but I might have to cast on a hat soon to get my mojo back.
It always sucks so bad when hours of knitting turn out to be a waste of time :( I think boxing is for a little while focusing on some more positive projects is a good coping strategy.ReplyDelete
I'm so in love with the tweed yarn you are using for this! And it's tough, when a big project needs to be ripped back. Sound like the pink shawl totally needs a time out.ReplyDelete
