Head on over to KnitCast and download the new update mp3. It’s only a short file but a listener eons ago suggested that I record one so that people who only subscribed but didn’t read the blog knew where I was.
I realised a couple of days ago that I couldn’t remember when I’d last picked up my knitting. I’ve not been able to make the time or energy for it recently plus other factors have got in the way. For example, I need to wind a skein of yarn so that I can continue on a top down raglan but I can’t get into my knitting/spare room full of all my boxed crap into order to unpack my swift.
With another top down raglan, the lovely Art Fibers Kyoto one, I’ve become stuck on the sleeve decreases of the final sleeve. That’s right, all I have to do is finish the last sleeve, sew in ends and a button and it’s done. But I forgot to make a note of how many stitches I decreased to when I knit the first sleeve and everytime I’ve looked at it I’ve been too tired to figure it out. I think the answer is to just look at it in daylight one day. I would like to finish it before New York.
I’ve been trying to decide what to take to knit on the journey and I’m not sure. It can’t be a sock, and I don’t want to take anything too big but I’m also a bit tired of scarves. Of course I do have to organise a way into the yarn/crap room so that I can look through my stuff.
However before I can do that I need to organise some of the other rooms in my house. I’m still renting, I decided to take a break from house hunting since I wasn’t finding anything I liked. So now I’m trying to get some semblance of order at home so that it does feel more like a home and less of a place to store boxes!
