It’s true. I started a new project before I finished the orange cowl, in spite of certain promises I may have made about finishing that project. But this weekend I was reminded of how much I love making simple children’s rollneck sweaters, and so I cast one on. I’ve downsized the needles I usually use in order to adjust my gauge. So far I think the smaller needles are making the sweater too stiff, but we’ll see. The photo doesn’t show the sweater off as well as it might, but the yarn is a beautiful mallard green.
And This Side of Paradise – sigh. It’s still not very interesting. More details soon.
Yarn Along is hosted each Wednesday by Ginny on her blog, Small Things.
I have way too many WIPs at the moment too, and xmas is coming fast I have no idea how much I will really have time to get done!! That green looks really nice, perfect for a sweater i think!
Thank you – I agree about having no idea about how may projects I will be able to finish by Christmas, especially when I have other goals (reading, writing…) to complete between now and then. Too often knitting has to fit into the cracks between everything else.
Sometimes it feels good to give in to temptation! I bet it is going to look great when it’s done.
Thanks–I completely agree!
I love the angle of your photo – so interesting. I think I also am reading a book that is just not grabbing me as interesting right now yet I keep pushing through – slowly. Your green looks like it’s really gorgeous!
Thanks! I’ve been into artsy photos lately. Before I had a blog, I would have given up on a boring book after 20-30 pages. Now I almost always finish them, if only for the chance to write about why I dislike them. 🙂
