The promise was: Finish One Project. Cast on One Project.
Well, how's the Finish One Project. Cast on a billion projects (but finish a small project) promise?
I'm on to the body on the Lightweight Pullover. The alpaca yarn that I bought at Rhinebeck has been such a pleasure to knit with. It just flies over the needles! The pattern is also so simple and straight forward that it's been a great mental "time out" knit - nothing like serenity stockinette. I can tell already this is going to be a much worn sweater when it's done.
OH and of course another Infinity Scarf! It's a bit of a thrill to see my pattern in the "New and Popular" pull down on Ravelry! Eeee!! This time around I used Aslan Trends Del Cerro wool. I only used 3 skeins and casted on about 20 less stitches (221).
I've also got capes on the brain! Just this morning I saw this pretty little thing in the Phildar catalog:
I can't stop looking at it. I've put in the order for the catalog so the yarn scheming has begun. I am thinking some Zara DK for this knit.
In the mean time to fill the cape void I did cast on for Aimee. Oh Kim, how you excite me.
And last but certainly not least I have jumped into Vestvember (Ravelry link)! I'm still excited about my finished Honeycomb vest so of course when I read Minty's post I had to join in to make another.
I am thinking of using the pattern Nederland from the Fall 08 Knitscene. I want to replace the argyle pattern with lotus leaves. I blame these Boden vests for the idea. I actually did a swatch which is turning into a hat for myself. My new knit friend Illanna thought it was very Zimmermann of me!
On top of all this great knitting Mr. Tenten and I are moving! Just a few blocks from where we are now but we all know how FUN (read sarcasm here) packing and moving is! pfffff!! I know we're moving in the right direction and perhaps somewhere in the near future we'll have a good ol' mortgage payment to pay but it still doesn't make the process easy. Ahh the act of growing up.
I do have one more finished knit but I'll save that for tomorrow. I've bombarded you all so much already today ;-)
Until then - Happy Knitting!
