As predicted, I messed up the sleeves on Cabled. It’s so much worse when you know that your screwing up as you knit, but you hold on to the hope that it’ll all work out in the end. ARGH. So at least for the moment I am completely unmotivated to carry on. Thankfully, just that same day, the yarn arrived in the mail for my Pinnate project. I’m already addicted, and have covered a lot of ground.

Sorry about the shoddy picture – my usual camera is at the menders.

Far better pictures were taken when I stopped into visit my friend Poppy at her studio – the home of Poppy de Garmo Photography.

She is a wonderfully creative person who inspires anyone she meets. Whats more, her work is stunning. Check her out! Especially her yoga portraits.

[I had cast on Pinnate just that morning!]






It’s back! And in good time.

We are soon to be moving house which offers the great chance to fearfully find all those abandoned projects. I’m trying to wisely utilize the return of knitting mojo and attempting to complete old projects in between the new.

Old Project : Cabled by Hinke

I have adjusted the cable to a braided cable. And… fear that I will have to rip out the sleeve I’m just about to complete because I picked up less stitches than recommended to create a less baggy finish – but, it could look ridiculous. As also could be ripping out mohair yarn. Hmm.

New Project : Pinnate Cardigan by Amy Christoffers

Very excited about this project – I’m knitting it to wear to a wedding this fall… it’s got to be a quick knit. er. really? I have ordered the yarn having decided to knit it up in green and I’m looking forward to be working with a hemp blend. No doubt I’ll be headed to the mail box every day until it arrives! Yikes!
