Sometimes you need to update and reboot. musings and ramblings about life-knitting and whatever else comes to mind.

Knitting has been moving along at a good pace. I had a lot of nervous energy the past week or so because of my mother's move,
but I didn't want to tackle anything that required a lot of focus. There has been significant progress on my aperture cardigan. I am almost finished with the body, and hope to start the sleeves this weekend. The knitting on my parabola and the seaming of the staccato layer are complete, but I need to seam the silk cloud layer and block. I don't want to rush through this part, so I've put it off and hope to tackle it on Saturday. Still in the WIP stages are the Falcons socks-need to try to work on them during the next televised game on Sunday [if I can bear to watch!], The Sommer Sleeveless Tank has seen NO love in quite a while. It'll probably languish until the spring when it'll be the right weather to wear it. While I have finished the blocks for Week 1 of the Kaffe Fassett Pure Wool Worsted Knit Along, I have done nothing with Weeks 2-4. I will be ordering the yarn I need for these blocks today. Maybe there will be some progress on these this weekend if I get parabola completed. These blocks are perfect for TV knitting. I did finish my purple socks, they need blocking-just plain vanilla. My goal for the next few months is to knit from my stash, and only work on small projects [hats, gloves, socks, etc.]. I want to really enjoy the holidays and not get overwhelmed with anything that requires a lot of thinking or deadlines. Knitting has definitely been my therapy the last few weeks. I also have some quilting projects I'd like to tackle before 2014 ends so we'll see how that goes! What's on your needles?
