During this past winter I found that I enjoyed knitting more than sewing. I managed to finish a few knitted projects, but I accumulated four UFOs--unfinished objects. Four unfinished knitting projects, and I'm quickly losing my knitting obsession as the warm weather is now here and I WANT TO SEW. Oops, I know that I'm not supposed to use all caps when typing, sorry. But seriously, I have a problem with letting myself go to the sewing room when I have these half-completed knitting projects cluttering the space around my knitting chair.
What's a girl to do? Sew or knit?
Oh, and ooooohhhhh, did you know that the new issue of Ottobre is due to arrive any day now?!!!! (Yeah, I know I'm not supposed to use multiple exclamation marks, either). But this new Otto issue looks promising--full of pretty new patterns for summer. For Emily. And I can't wait for my copy!!!!
Guess I should get off the computer and work on one or the other knitting project...or sew something...hmmm...maybe I'll go read a book.
By far the most challenging thing I have ever knit!
Thank you, Tammy, for writing about this lovely pattern.
Silky Drop Socks:
This silk-blend yarn is so soft.
Rambling Rows Afghan:
I started this several years ago and pulled it out again this winter.
It is now at the half-way point.
At this rate, it may be another few years before I get back to it.
P.S. You can see my knitting projects here at Ravelry if you have a Ravelry account.
I have this one lone skein of yarn that I bought for a specific project,
but now I don't remember what. Any suggestions?
The coming-soon Otto!
My poor son never gets his picture on the blog, so here he is!
