This week, I’ve engaged in what I think is a well deserved bout of selfish and entirely monogamous knitting.
I’ve loved it, really. Showing the people I love most how much I love to make things for them is really one of the things I enjoy most about being A Knitter. But given the short time frames I gave myself in some instances, it’s been a little trying at times as I raced the clock. But it’s not a bad output.
But enough’s enough. Time for me to get on with some delayed cardigan knitting. Autumn in upon us and I’m so far sans new cardigans. While my Golden Vintage waits to be sewn up, I’m knitting wholly and entirely on my Featherweight Cardigan in Knit Picks Shadow (colour Basalt Heather).
As far as cardigans go, you can’t beat this for its go-everywhere-ness. Literally feathery in its weight, all in one piece and ultimately very plain with its ongoing stocking stitch design, I’ve worked on it every morning in the car, on the way home on the bus, over coffee and drinks and lunch and dinner. Everywhere. And I imagine that’ll continue when I get to the sleeves and the band because it stuffs into a small project bag with ease and can be picked up and put down again and again.
And I’m not stopping the monogamy til it’s done. Probably. Never say never.
