Right, so when I intended to not start any more knitting projects, I really meant it. Really. Then things happened that I said “yes” to, and now I have two new sweater/tops on the needles. But, but, they are time-sensitive, and for specific purposes! So that makes it okay, right? Sure, why not.
I somehow agreed for my business, Gaia’s Colours, to sponsor the Victoria Fibre Fest’s fashion show, and the lady organising it suggested that I wear a hand-knitted piece for the evening myself. This is how I came to be casting on for the Green Gable t-shirt last knit, which watching “Iron Man” on DVD. It looks pretty basic – a short-sleeved top made out of a DK weight wool, with a little eyelet lace pattern on the front neckline. Knit in the round, in one piece, I hope to have it done by the end of the month. Like I have so much knit-time…. but these days, despite the need for dye-time, I’m really making time for knit-time as well. It’s really important to me, both therapeutic and practical – I need to complete my projects!
But for today, it’s Mother’s Day and I’m going to go relax with my knitting….
