Madness!

Hi! Remember me? It's okay if you don't. I won't take it personally. :) On the off chance that you do remember me, though, I find it's high time I show you what the hell is happening over here!


Here's a big box of secret. Well...maybe not. I'm never really sure if sample knitting for an existing pattern is supposed to be secretive, but I'll keep it that way anyway. Ish. It's Hawthorn by Courtney Kelley in The Fibre Company's Road to China Light, which I kind of want to sleep in every night and have a tendency to pet just because. I wish I could afford some of my own! Mitts. Some mitts might be in order. You won't get to see the finished object until she rereleases it. Just in case.


And here's the progress on my Exeter. Yep. Two weeks and it's only grown by two repeats. That sample's been keeping me fully occupied. Not for long, though. It has been super nice to set aside the stockinette or garter and dig into some intense cables!

I've also picked up my Rams and Ewes again, but there's not enough progress to share. I need to have it done before the end of the month, so I better get rockin' on it. This weekend, I also plan on starting a project for an awesome swap with my friend Eliza! We're knitting something for one another. It's going to be awesome! I've been thinking about it non-stop since she proposed it, so now I just have to do it! You should see it in a week or two.

So, how have you been for the last two weeks? I've been reading your blogs, just not writing my own. :) Friday I hope to distract you from the fact that I suck at finishing things this month with bangs and a dress. But we'll see. I could have socks or a tank top. But probably not.

  4. All of you projects are great! Plus they're not mindless knitting projects, so you can't breeze through.

  5. I was wondering where you went! Although I know that you have a crazy busy life, so I guessed that you were off having some fun adventures! I love the projects! That sample knit is going to be particularly wonderful!
