Lazy blogger... lazy knitter... lazy in general... soaking up the summer for a bit. My allergies have been terrible so it seems that when I sit down to knit in the afternoon, I end up napping instead.
With so many WIPs, I've resisted starting a new project but I did download yet another shawl/scarf pattern today. Meanwhile, I decided to work on the one project that I'm least likely to ever finish... the Rowan "Martha" Cardigan. I'm almost to the armholes on the back so it's going fairly quickly (especially considering the extra time I've been devoting to sleep)... but I am constantly worrying about the odds of it actually fitting when it's done. I keep re-measuring and comparing it to current items from my closet... but I still worry. There's something about the thought of knitting a sweater out of 4-ply cotton (string basically) on size 1 needles that makes me tremble at the thought of it not fitting.
In addition to buying patterns in fits of fantasy, I've also purchased some of the greatest stitch markers ever!
They are beautiful, affordable, very lightweight, and notice the unique design of the row counter. It really helps me remember to move the number when I come to the marker. I got these from Jed's Joy on Etsy.
I also received the July installment of The Loopy Ewe sock club. These are so much fun to open!
Lovely reds! The little Namaste box was made in this color especially for this kit. And inside...
a cute little Loopy stitch marker. :)
I can't wait to knit these socks... but I must finish the back of the eternal cardigan first. I must! (Bets are open on whether or not I make it.)
