Although it might not seem like I am . . .
(because I haven't mentioned knitting since finishing the big brown blob) . . .
I am knitting.
I just haven't been talking about my knitting.
And things are moving right along.
It's been a pretty fun knit so far, including all my most favorite things about knitting:
And after getting through that first, rather l-o-n-g slip stitch section (which, I'll admit, did get to be a bit of a slog), I've really had fun mixing the sections up, "sampler" style.
Until I hit the last of the slip stitch sections . . . and discovered that it's really linen stitch (which is, technically, a slip stitch pattern). While I really love slip stitch patterns, I am (gulp) . . . not a fan of linen stitch. It's so (deceivingly) simple. But it kicks my butt every time. (PAY ATTENTION, Kym. I tell myself. Just pay attention to what you're doing. It's an easy, every-other-stitch pattern, on repeat. And yet. . . kicks. my. butt!) So things came to a real slow-down over the weekend when I realized I had a linen stitch situation on my hands!
(There was a rip-back of several rows. Sigh.) I'm in the groove again, though. Ever closer to the finish line.
So. There we are.
Consider yourselves . . . up to speed!
How about YOU? What are you making these days?
