Really slow knitting week around Chez Yarn Diet. I am dying to cast on for my American Brilliant, but need to get one project, at least!, off the needles first, and if you recall I had a bad case of startitus in the few days it took my yarn to arrive.
I am almost exactly at the half way point of the circular portion of my Opposite Pole. I should be much further along, but I kept getting distracted.
I am a few rows further into the free form cardigan, this has been my lunch time knitting as it is mostly brainless - a little counting involved, I don't want to miss dividing for sleeves - and easily picked up and put down. It will go a bit faster after I throw the sleeve stitches onto waste yarn. The plan is to knit to the waist, cut the yarn, knit the sleeves and see how long I can make it. The yarn is from the stash that I was gifted last summer and not something I would ever stand a chance of matching. (My understanding is it had been stored in a house for a number of years and before that stored at an early education/child care center for even more years.)
Finally there is the baby blanket that is my tv knitting...which as I watch about an hour of tv a week means very little knitting gets done on it. I am about half way through the border chart, but I will probably add some more rows just to bring it up to the size I want before starting the edging. Funny, when I cast on I forgot how much knitting is involved in edging....seems like I always do!
Kids are starting to get excited for next weekend, when we journey off to my "yarn thing". It looks like there will be some interesting vendors there, hopefully I can find some wonderful things to share with you when we get back.
