Behind every knitter, is a huge pile of yarn.
In March, I joined the Rowan Elder Throw KAL thinking I would have a mostly completed blanket in about six months. If you’ve been following my blog for long, you know I often drastically underestimate the amount of time it takes me to complete projects. Time doesn’t magically stand still when I knit. (Wouldn’t that be a cool super power?)
The KAL concluded about six weeks ago. I know there were plenty of knitters with completed Elder Throws. I’m a process knitter. I’ll finish my COVID Comfort at some point. Doing different stitches in each clue is helping me stay motivated on this project. It’s just some times I need to stop to knit a gift or a dishcloth or a MM20 project. Can one ever have too many dishcloths? Okay, I may also be actively working on another blanket and several MM20. Variety is what keeps life interesting, right?
Clue two involved lace with a two row repeat. It was a pretty easy clue to memorize after the first panel. That said, once I picked up stitches for the last panel I was pretty excited to be moving onto clue three and a new stitch.
We let Burt out on the deck for a bit until he gets his naught kitty hat on for chasing the local wild life. He’s a cat so he’s going to do what cats instinctively do, but he has no outdoor sense at all. He does look rather dapper in this photo, doesn’t he?
Hope your week is off to a great start. Make way for September!
