Friends, where has this week gotten to?!
First, I thought I’d pop in sometime yesterday for a Unraveled Wednesday post. Then I thought I’d get around to it this morning …. and here we are, almost dinner time, and I’ve just sat down to tap out a quick hello!
Not tons to report on the knitting front. I cast on the Talmadge Cloche that I mentioned in Friday Favorites this past weekend, and it’s completely addictive. It definitely requires attention, but it’s really intuitive — I love the result! Sometimes I find I actually have an easier time knitting things that require a bit more focus. I’m less likely to make mistakes if I’m forced to pay attention!
As much as I love the Talmadge Cloche though, it hasn’t been getting much of my attention. I’ve been doing everything I can to try at the very least to not lose any more ground on my Starting Point:
I’ve really enjoyed the mystery knitalong, but boy, do those clues come around fast. I’ve stayed reliably exactly one week behind … the day Clue 3 was released, I wrapped up Clue 2. This week, however, was a little different. I’ve had a lot of time in the car (because: LA) and happened to finish Clue 3 on my first piece (the shawl’s been knit, so far, in two pieces) while on a long drive (as a passenger, of course!). Because I couldn’t easily put Piece 1 on a holder and transfer my needle to the second piece, I carried on and began Clue 4. So now, I’m about halfway through Clue 4 on Piece 1 — and Clue 5 has just been released. So I need to hurry and catch Piece 2 up! Phew. As I said, I’ve enjoyed the shawl a lot, but I’m ready to finish it up — it really monopolizes knitting time … and I do like to rotate my projects a bit!
Linking up, even though I’m late, with As Kat Knits Unraveled Wednesday! What are you working on this week?
