We were away last week to sunny California and I’ll share more about it soon, but for now, our regularly scheduled program of yarny things.
I barely did more than a few hours of knitting in the past week which is understandable because we were busy enjoying family and exploring in CA but also unfortunate because I’m working on a test knit that I do hope to have finished by the deadline in July. I’m cruising along on it now and it feels good to see some progress. So, I’m working on a test knit for Norah of FoxandFolk on instagram. It is an absolutely darling button up cardigan with a peplum waist for Phoebe. I tried it on her for fit yesterday and it is just going to be so, so sweet on her. I really love knitting with Berrocco Ultra Alpaca, a yarn blend that is 50% wool + 50% alpaca. It is so buttery soft, and having knit a few children’s sweaters and hats with it before, I have realized it is their favorite wool to wear because of its softness. Noah’s last birthday sweater was knit with it and he wears it almost daily when he’s cold. Anyway, gray may be a boring color but it will be so wearable for Phoebe! And I’m realizing I need a gray cardigan for my wardrobe soon, too! 🙂
I also didn’t do much reading on the trip, but I am still slowly working through (affiliate link) The Artist’s Way, and hoping to make more progress in it soon.
