Knitting: Last week I started giving into that temptation of wanting to cast on every. single. skein. of yarn I own. (As well as perusing shops to buy more yarn and adding countless new patterns to my queue.) Luckily I spotted a KAL and that reigned me in and redirected my focus. The Very Shannon TTTKAL starts May 7th (I’m leaning towards Saco Stripes) so I’ve decided that is a good deadline to finish my Clairette Cardigan. Not long after I cast on, I made the ambitious-to-me goal to have it complete by the first of May, which would be three months from the cast on date. I say ambitious-to-me because previous sweaters took me more like five or six months. Currently I’m about halfway up the sleeves then all I have to do is the yoke/shoulders. I’m feeling hopeful that I can finish it!
Reading: Not much! Mostly I’ve been flipping through books borrowed from the library—just inspirational, how-to style books with no linear plot. As well as getting caught up on my blog reading.
