[knitting] a little update

Knitting for grown-ups / Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

oh dear, this section of my poor blog is completely abandoned! and let’s not talk about my Ravelry project page 🙁

A few years ago, I used to compile lots of information on both this blog and my Ravelry page and it was very useful for me: I knew which size of needles I used for which yarn, etc. And I miss having this info, so I’m trying now to give myself a little kick in the backside and come here more often. I’m going to set myself a challenge: I will try to come here a least every two days once the little one is in bed. I have no excuse not to spend some 20 minutes on my blog!

Let’s say I do this until the end of the year (December I mean). I don’t know if it will work, but at least I’m going to try. Everybody says blogging is dead. I don’t know if it’s true, but if that’s the case then it’s sad because I’ve learned so much from blogs!

Anyway, let’s keep it short and get to the heart of the subject: a little update on my knitting.

I’v recently finished knitting my raglan seed stitch jumper and I will not talk anymore about it since I think it needs a proper post with photos.

I’m back on my Miriam Cardi (by Carrie Bostick Hoge). I knitted it last year but due to its 3/4 length sleeve, it never really fitted in my wardrobe. So I’m lengthening the sleeves to have full length ones.

I still have the Polwarth jumper by Ysolda that is close to completion and staying in the basket of shame. I don’t have enough yarn (despite having the correct amount per the pattern) and since it as uniquely hand dyed, I have to think of a way to finish the jumper anyway!

After that, I’d like to knit another Folded by Veera VĂ€limaki. I really love the first one I knitted in 2011 and I really need another one. I’ll be using yarn by the same brand – Holst Garn – but in Coast and in deep blue. I initially planned to use this yarn on the Moroccan Nights, but after two failed attempts, I think it needs to be used somewhere else.

So for now I’m knitting on the Miriam Cardi, it’s pretty mindless as I’m going round and round on the sleeves!

I’ll leave you for now and I’m planning to be back soon! and if I’m not back in the next couple of days, you can yell at me :p
