Huzzah! The knitting mojo has returned! Unfortunately, All the Time in the World didn't show up along with it, but beggars can't be choosers, right? I'm knitting again, and while I wish I had more time to do it, I'm mostly just glad to have needles in my hands again.
I even managed to knit a whole Something, which you'll have to pop in on Friday to get a look at, but it was really nice to finish something and block it, and have it be all cute and *done*. I got so excited about it, I ran right out and cast on a new project! I know, right? I don't know who I am either. That aside, check out the beginnings of my new Ptarmigan cowl.
I <3 this pattern a bunch. I saw a shop sample at Fancy Tiger last fall and immediately bought yarn to make it because I really, really wanted to wear it. But then I didn't knit it. And it's been sitting in the craft room for aaaaaaaages. So it's cute. And fun to knit. And stashbusting. Triple threat! Anyway, the yarn is Rowan Cashsoft DK, which is soft and sturdy, and has great stitch definition. I'm a fan. Really, it's a pleasure to knit.
I'm also still poking along on the Austin Hoodie.
Nearly finished with the body now, then it gets blocked, the shoulders get grafted together and I get to start on the arms. Hopefully, all those steps will happen this week.
In other news, well... I'm not sure there is other news. It's mostly baby-trying and fertility stuff these days, and I'm on the fence about whether this blog is a good place to go into detail about all that. Is it over-sharing? Would it be helpful or interesting to anybody? Feel free to let me know what you think on the subject. And then go check out all the other WIPW entries. I'm ridiculously behind on reading them myself, but there's always awesome stuff going on over there.
See you Friday!
