Oh, how good it is to begin new things. Fresh starts are on all of our minds this January season, aren’t they? I finished and blocked my Tecumseh sweater yesterday and I cannot wait for it to dry. It’s my first color work project and one of my knitting goals for last year was to try color work and brioche, both of which I did manage to accomplish in 2018! I cast on a new shawl with delicious Woolly Mammoth Fibre Co. Wensleydale 4 ply that I’ve been sort of hoarding. It is such a different fiber than anything I’ve worked with before and I’m really, really loving it. I cast on for a shawl with it and I need to check gauge and make sure it’s working well at this needle size. I think this knit is going to be so relaxing and mindless, while producing a very simple and wearable piece.
I also finished The Quotidian Mysteries last night and plan to start reading The Fledgling today, which I found at a book sale over the summer. Reading fiction sounds really nice right now. It feels good to finish and begin new things.
