I’ve been on a bit of a sweater binge lately, which is a little odd because it’s been really hot and not exactly sweater weather. That said, I just finished the Tappan Zee cardigan from Knitty and I’m quite pleased with how it came out.
What do you think?
I have been on such a finishing binge that I have completed all of my works in progress. I was a bit shocked to find that. When I went back to the UFO (UnFinished Object) rack, it was empty except for a lonely Christmas stocking that needs a bit of fixing on the short-row heel and a quilting project where I need to finish the hand-quilting and bind it.
The only thing I have on the needles is this solitary sock:
It will eventually have a mate, but I feel a bit untethered not to have an ongoing project to work on and drag about with me. After all, in my world, socks don’t really count because they are always on my needles. Not that I don’t love handknit socks, nay quite the opposite, but because I am always working on them as fill-in knitting around other projects.
So, I’m thinking about another cardigan, probably this one, also from Knitty:
And of course, there are those three fleeces in the basement that need drum carding, a big backlog of spinning fiber, and some quilting projects. But for the moment, the knitting is caught up. I still can’t believe it . What will I do with myself?
Pick up some cookies, make some tea, and cast on another sweater, I think.
