This week is all about clearing the deck — both in terms of knitting and the house, to get ready to start some big (knitting) projects and settling into a more normal routine in a mostly put together new place. My Wood Warbler is happily finished and got some wear this weekend — hopefully I’ll get some pictures of it soon! My Bousta Beanie’s drying on the window sill as we speak. I’m on the home stretch of a baby poncho, pictured below, knit in some vintage stash Madelinetosh DK yarn, which is destined for a dear friend in Montreal whose due to have a little one arriving this October. I thought the colorway was perfect for a little pumpkin baby!
Once this is done, I’ll feel full license to start some new projects this weekend — my hands are itching for some new things to knit. I may have already started swatching for one project, which I’m really excited to tell you about soon!
I’ve also really been enjoying Madeline Bunting’s Love of Country. It’s a wonderful mix of travel writing and history, and it’s definitely whetting my appetite for a visit to the Outer Hebrides!
What WIPs are you working on this week? Trying to finish any projects by the end of September??
