I am back with Ginny for another weekly Yarn Along. Poking about the "blogosphere" and seeing what everyone is knitting and reading has really become one of the joys of my week. Thanks, Ginny!
After finishing those great little slippers for Gemma last week, I was sorely tempted to cast on another pair for someone, anyone, just because they were so satisfying to knit and put together. But I resisted, and made myself move forward on the two cardigans--Una's Sweet Peasy and Gemma's little Mini Chic. I only have the button bands to do on Una's, and have been putting it off, as picking up stitches is almost as tedious to me as seaming (I wonder if I can ever be tempted to knit a seamed sweater again...) I am about to begin the sleeves on Gemma's (I'll do full length sleeves for winter), but I botched the button band by following the instructions. For a 2T, the buttons shouldn't be so close together, and I noted that too late, so I will have to sew up two of them and then try to cover them, maybe with some needle-felted do-dads.
I am hoping to get these done by the end of the month; if I can, I have one pullover the sleeves of which I must lengthen for Gabriel, and then one more pullover to knit for Adrian, and I will have accomplished my goal of 6 sweaters in 6 months!
I am still reading An Exorcist Tells His Story. I read very little in a day--I am presently consumed with knitting). It is interesting, and not a little creepy.
Join the knitting and reading bonanza on Ginny's Yarn Along and find loads of inspiration!
