As fair as knitting goes, I've been going crazy. I started my fall knitting! I know the weather's been crazy hot, but I've been sitting in super blast air conditioning here, and I'm really really excited for all my winter sweaters. I ended up frogging my Colina, I knit about 12 inches of garter stitch, and lost all interest. That was going to be my teal yarn. I'm not sure what I'll knit with it know. I think also instead of knitting a Begonia Pullover with my navy yarn I'll knit another Petrie, because I really love the shape of the first one. The Sunday we moved up here I cast on a Sperry, which is my X-mas gift for my sister. My plan is to make a sweater for someone else, and a sweater for myself at the same time. My plan was to knit a Sperry for my sister as well as for me. When I started her Sperry, I thought I would lose interest really quickly, and start mine and kind of knit them row for row. Instead, I was really invested in hers. I have a nice lace cable pattern for interest, and it went pretty quick. I actually knit a ball the first day, and then a whole second ball the second day! At this rate, I'd have a sweater done in a week! Then I went for a third ball....and I had misplaced all my other yarn for this project! 6 balls I swear I had and can't find. I'm not too worried, everything we own is in the garage right now, so they HAVE to be in there somewhere, but it was a bummer to get kicked out of my groove so quickly. I needed something new to knit. I did have yarn for a Sperry for myself, but the shine had worn off starting a new one. I ended up casting on a Faux Cardi Pullover. It's not on my official fall knit list, but I've low-key been wanting to make for a while, and actually in this yarn, but just never got around to it. Tomorrow will be a week, and I've managed to complete the body and started the sleeves today. Of course, the whole moving thing will be slowing me down significantly.
I ordered yarn for my 3-in1, which is what I plan to knit next. While I knit that I'll finish up the Fireside Sweater for a friend I started last year. I have the body all knit up, I just need to do the sleeves and seam it together, so that should give me lots of time to work on the 3-in1 :) Now, lots of pictures from the weekend!
