Wednesdays Are For Knitting

Although it may not look like much, I have made some knitting progress. Yes, it’s miraculous.

The Rhombi Sweater body is finally finished and I’m working on the collar now. It’s a 10 row repeat that is knit twice and although the rows are looooooong, at least they are interesting. I’ve got one of those repeats finished and then I just have to finish the sleeves (they are short so that should be relatively painless) and it will be done. Dare I hope to be finished by the end of the weekend?

As for the Tulum Socks, well, they are growing. Two Town Meetings and a colonscopy helped with that. I will say that I remember now why I stopped knitting socks with dpns. It’s way slower for me than magic loop. In any case, I will not NOT be knitting these come July 1. Of course, I’m pretty sure I said the same thing about June 1 but whateverrrrr.

As I tell myself quite frequently these days, it’s a hobby not a job.

    I was going to put “finish a pair of socks” on my June list, but decided against it – I really want to get my mojo back for them, not feel obligated to check them off my to-do list. love the sweater – can’t wait to see FO shots next week!

    Exactly. Hobby. For fun. :-) That sweater looks wonderful! I love the color(s). I just finished a pair of socks. It took me about 8 months. But I finished!

    I’ve got a couple of slogs going – a baby sweater and a second sock. Your sweater looks quite nice! I hear we’re getting a nor’easter and I’m headed to the White Mountains tomorrow…looks like knitting weather to me!

    The colors in your sweater are gorgeous! It makes me think of lilac bushes :-)

    BTW, I made the peanut butter squares recipe that you shared last week and they are fantastic! My family said that I really needed to practice though and make them again. Haha!

    I confess I don’t get the magic loop thing. I know HOW, but it seems like too much shifting stitches, and pulling and looping, whereas with dps, you just go round and round. I’ve tried socks on a tiny circ, too, but that’s really awkward and strained. So dps remain my choice – for now – but I’m ready to change my opinion if you can show me how magic loop is better.

    I love knitting socks on an 8-inch circular. Still need dpns for the heels and toes.

    Love the sweater and the socks – both are beautiful yarn. Can’t wait to see the finished projects.

    I’m looking forward to the sweater unveiling. I have a second sock that I’ve needed to close for several weeks, but hey, I’m not wearing them any time soon – what’s the rush? Oh, love knit companion btw. Finished configuring the charts for the Percy shawl and am ready to get back to fixing it. Awesome tool!!

    Exactly! The key word is HOBBY.

    I don’t even use my dpn’s anymore. I am a magic loop gal all the way :-)

    I can’t wait to see that sweater finished – it looks so pretty already.

    I’m not sure I’ll finish anything any time soon. It’s the process…:-)
    That sweater is going to look so great on you!

    I gave away and sold my large collection of dpns. I only use Magic Loop now.

    Isn’t it nice to be able to knit a SMALLER SIZE sweater???
