I finished my koivua sweater a few days ago and it truly turned out JUST how I hoped. How often does that happen? Especially when you don’t carefully gauge swatch (guilty!). I love it so much and we even had snow flurries the day that I finished it so I got to wear it in the chilly weather and enjoy it’s warmth. I’ll try to take some photos of it soon.
I have so many projects that I can’t wait to cast on, but I’ve been forcing myself to go back and work on some languishing projects. I am nearly done with the second sleeve on my featherweight cardigan. The yarn is just so lovely to work with, and I adore the color. After the sleeve, I just have to knit the collar and it will be done. It’s so close to finishing, really. In fact most of my other works-in-progress are close to finishing, so I’m hoping to clear at least a few of them off the decks before casting on something else. I have two commissioned projects for a dear friend — a top and a shawl — both larger projects knit in fingering weight yarn, so before I start those I just feel the need to clear some head space.
I’m still reading Gilead, and I’m enjoying it but also not sure entirely that I love it. I’m about half way through — does it get better, those of you who have read it before?
I hope you’ve been enjoying these early March days, staying healthy, and finding some time for making + reading.
