Well, I hope those of you in the US also had a great long weekend! My mum and I hit up the farmer's market on Saturday, and Sunday and Monday were spent making soup, relish, stuffed peppers, and veggie lasagnas to can and freeze for later. I also snagged some plum jam to make a cake I've been conceptualizing for a while, some pickles, two pounds of some of the best cheeses I've ever tasted, and some okra that I fried up to have with pizza on Sunday night.
As you can tell from the picture (which is NOT of a green garter stitch monstrosity), I finished my Easy A sample over the weekend. I'm really pleased with it, and I'm planning a cropped version too, once I get more yarn. I picked up my Jean Pullover again, and yesterday at lunch I was halfway through a row when I admitted to myself that I wasn't loving the sweater as much in person as I'd loved it in the pictures. I hate to knit things I won't wear, and I love this yarn so much that I really want it to be something fantastic, so I ripped it out.
After scrolling through my queue, I came across Henri, which has been high up in my list of "Sweaters I Love" ever since Heather finished hers. Lo and behold, I have enough yarn, and I cast on last night. I'm already having a ball working on this, and I can't wait to see how it works up.
Good for you for ripping out something that you know you won't wear! It's hard, but so much better to knit something that you will truly enjoy.ReplyDelete
