Giant Sigh of Relief ProjectOctober 17, 2017 / byMichelle / Categories : Feeds
I am so relieved that Heritage is off the needles. It was a fantastic knit, but I had yardage and personal gauge issues that meant I almost knit the whole thing twice. So I was kind of sick of the Heron's Wing colorway by the cast off round.
Pulling out these two skeins of Gynx Yarns (in Charcoal and Lavender Tea) that I've been saving for a two color shawl, was so satisfying. Even though my knitting time was limited, just knocking out the first stripe section last night erased all the frustrations from my mistakes on the previous pattern. This was one of those times when people sitting next to you can visibly see the difference knitting makes in your well-being.
Cumberland is the perfect thing to help me switch gears from sweater re-knit mode. It involves easy lace, stripes, and yarn that I love. Like Heritage and Buckalope, it is designed by a Ravelry/ Instagram friend whom I love. I know that it was just released by Appalachian Knits, and so hasn't had time to accumulate a ton of FOs, but I really wanted those stripes and it has less than 30 FOs, so I'm entering it.
I'm thinking maybe I should interject some of them into my queue, every third project or so. It would be a "coming full circle" kind of experience..somehow... and freshen things up.
