It’s been a lovely week, I have very little accomplished and I don’t mind at all, as I’ve been doing some mental work with a design and planning to revise my view towards my knitting/stash/projects. (There’s more about this down the page.)
I’m trying to become a more minimalist knitter. Ok those who know me can stop laughing or gasping whichever way you were overcome 🙂
Here’s my FO. Per usual, the new shiny took precedence over other things on the needles. This is my design I have named “KnitFlix”. It’s just a recipe really as you adjust it with your own favourite heel, toe and lengths. It’s perfect for watching or bingeing on your episodes on the large screen.
I also have a FROGRESS event in the works, I’m not going to do the the Advent Scarf. As one of my minimalist knitter projects I’m spending my knitting time pursuing only knits that make me happy and that won’t end up as a project bag and lonely needle & yarn wip. I had knit only two days so my time loss was nominal, besides its firmed up my desire to knit only that which gives me joy.
It has become clear to me that I don’t enjoy knitting flat. On one cardigan in fingering I added a steek panel so I could knit it in the round, I ended up frogging it anyway due to gauge, but I saw a sign then. The Advent Scarf is totally worth the knit but I’m going to fashion it (with the designer’s permission) into a series of cowls. I’ll change my yarn to some KP sport in the colour green and gift them for Christmas or birthdays. Voilà!
The green is so very seasonal. My eyes are in love with it.
My wips are where they were, minus the scarf, no new cast ons, but I feel the pull of a hat or 3, we’ll see if I resist in the coming days.
No lights on the house yet, but the bins of decor and lights are ready to go by the front door, fingers crossed for a day of sunshine in the coming week.
Tomorrow I get my pathology results and these blasted itchy stitches removed. Finally!
I hope you had a great week.
