I have huge news. My Finishing Friday pledge has started to pay off. I am now halfway done with my Twizzler socks. I will cast on the second one tonight or tomorrow so I have swim lesson knitting ready to go tomorrow. I love how these look. They are a little tight now, which usually means they will be perfect after blocking.
I cast on The Weekender sweater at the end of last week. I hope to have it finished for Thanksgiving. That works out to about one skein of worsted weight yarn a week, which sounds totally doable. I am loving this knit – it’s mindless, but you have to think twice a row so it isn’t totally boring.
If you have been thinking about knitting a weekender you should cast one on. Alissa and Shannon are knitting weekenders too, so you would be joining a fun group. I’ll even make small project bags for everyone who finishes The Weekender before Thanksgiving (why yes, I do seriously need motivation to get back to sewing, why do you ask?).
I am in a phase where I want to knit ALL THE THINGS, so I’m doing my best to shrug off any responsibilities and obligations so I can knit instead. My house is filthy, I’ve been relying on rotisserie chicken for dinners, and I’m behind on reading, but it has been awesome.
