This cozy little scene by my bed currently bringing me joy. So I’ve been knitting on a few different projects this week. It’s funny how a project can sit neglected for awhile and then suddenly you have the desire to pick it back up and finish it. That’s how it has been with my featherweight cardigan. I mentioned a few weeks ago that I thought I would run out of yarn for this project and I went ahead and ordered another skein but, of course, the dye lots are drastically different. As you can see above, the skeins I did have were already pretty different. I started alternating skeins just toward the bottom of the cardigan where it looks pretty stripey in the photo. I don’t really mind how it’s looking, but I don’t think I’ll keep alternating skeins on the sleeves so hopefully it turns out ok and not too odd looking. I’m almost done with the ribbing on the bottom, and then will move on to sleeves. I’m sort of hoping now to not need to use the extra skein I ordered and just make 3/4 sleeves with the two balls of yarn I have currently going, because the new skein is a much brighter purple. Maybe I’ll knit a little baby cardigan with the new skein of yarn? I’m sure I’ll find a use for it. 😉
I finished Francine River’s new book and have been back to reading A Circle of Quiet in the evenings before bed. I’m really enjoying it. I so appreciate her thoughts on writing and creative work.
