If there are any quilters still reading my blog, you’re probably wondering if I will ever quilt again. I don’t know! Right now, quilting just isn’t exciting me. Don’t worry about Boots. I can sit in the sewing room with him and knit most days . . not always, but most of the time.
My next project is Blue Sand Cardigan which I’m making for Nicole. I also have yarn to make one for me but figured I would make something for Nicole since I’ve made four sweaters in a row or myself.
Yesterday afternoon I got the swatch done and then started knitting last night. This one starts with a provisional cast on with waste yarn and that was pretty confusing and even after I thought I knew how to do it, my hands weren’t doing what my brain was thinking needed to be done. I could sense Vince wanting to say “Give up!” but I didn’t give up and I finally got it done.
The yarn is Amy Butler Belle Organic, which is a DK weight by Rowan. I’ve used it before to make a cowl and liked working with it. I have no idea how it will hold up as a sweater but that’s kinda how it is with all the yarns.
Hopefully I will have made some good progress to show you in the Friday “On the Needles” report.
