Currently on the needles is a clapotis that I’ve started using Noro Matsuri. This is a cotton/wool blend, cable plied from what I can tell, and gorgeous in colour, as Noro does so well. It’s coming along slowly, but the heatwave hasn’t been very conducive to knitting.
Oh jeez, I just had to check out my Ravelry projects to see what else I’ve got on the go. Not a good sign…..heatwave brain is still in operation.
There’s a pair of basic socks I started, but my sock mojo is still m.i.a. so that will probably languish in a project bag for much longer.
Oh yeah, my crocheted flower tiles purse! I started that with such great guns, and now, sadly that is languishing in a waterford vase of all things. I really thought I’d have that done to take to Hawaii… maybe for our next planned trip to the big island.
Honeycomb vest… I really have let that slide too. Just as I get closer to the finish line, I set it aside. I’m not really sure why, but….huh. I need to pick that up again and finish for the fall.
Amelia sweater I set aside to knit up the February Lady Sweater. That came out fabulous and I can’t wait for cooler temps to wear that. I’ll get Amelia going again, I promise myself.
And last w.i.p. is a log cabin blanket that I started quite awhile ago. I was running out of yarn and set it aside, but did a swap with my sister and have a few more skeins to finish it off. It’ll go into the gift/donation box and wait for just the right person.
What has been my main obsession these days is my spinning wheel. I can’t get enough of it. I’m slowly learning not to overspin, not to break the fibres…etc etc. I’m in constant search of more fibre and have joined a couple of fibre clubs…so I should be swimming in it soon.
I need to weave! I’m thinking one of my first handspun yarns would make a nice weave. I need to get the thought processes going on that project…but heatwave brain has gone into survival mode and it’s all I can do these days to just clean and feed myself and get my work done on time.
That’s it…for now.
