Happy Wednesday! I missed my regular Wednesday post last week because my site was down and my live in IT guy was riding his bike. I was planning on writing a catch up post all week, but I have been so busy it never happened. But I’m back at it now, and I have a lot of update you on.
My knitting needles finally arrived (3 months after being ordered), so I’m back to working on the owl sweater for Audrey. It is going very fast, which is a good thing because I’m afraid she will only be able to wear it this year. It is already the middle of August, so I really need to get going on the sweater if I’m going to finish it in time to convince my mom or sister to sew the buttons on for me by the time it gets cold. I hope to have the sweater finished and blocked by next week (this might be because I will see two possible button sewing helpers on Saturday).
The Wonder Woman Wrap is gorgeous, but sitting in a bag being ignored until I finish the sweater. I’m looking forward to picking it up again. I’m on the second yellow W. I’m nervous that I will run out of yarn, but I’ve weighed it and I should be OK. I want to quickly knit through that section to see if I’ll really make it. It will be a more relaxing project once I know I have the yarn to finish (or a very frustrating project if I need to decide if I’m going to splurge on another skein of yarn love yarn).
I’ve finished one self patterning sock for John, and should be able to get through the heel on the second sock before next week (if I manage to cast it on).
Let’s pretend the huge cardigan that still needs to be seamed doesn’t exist, OK?.
I’m feeling overwhelmed about all of my in flight projects. I think it is because Elliot is on a mission to go to the ER with a head injury, so I’m not able to knit as much as I was able to before he was so climbing everything. I’m hoping that even with significantly reduced knitting time I’m able to make some progress this week. Winter is coming, I can’t ignore the cardigan forever.
Have a great week!
