Must. Knit. Faster.

This past weekend saw beautiful temperatures.  I was outdoors in a sundress and light jacket, soaking it in.  That also means that some of my knitting projects are about to go in to hibernation if I don’t finish them soon.  One of the afghans I’ve been working on since Christmas was accidentally left at my grandfather’s house on Saturday, so that’s gone for another week or so.  Apart from that, I have two summer sweaters on the needles, so I’ve been working on those as quickly possible.


Ellette’s sweater is coming along nicely.  The instructions are easy to follow and I’m zipping through the endless stockinette.  I thought I would be sick of it by now because the puff sleeves were a ridiculous amount of knitting, but I found if I marvel at the bottomless ball of yarn I’ve been using I can keep going.  It’s like a mystery – how many rounds does it take to get to the end of the tootsie skein?  I’m almost done with the body, and still have a few yards to the ball at least.  The world may never know.

I’m hoarding my other fingering weight yarn for on-the-road summer knitting.  I’ve got a few design ideas in my head – now I just need the time to execute.

What summer projects are you itching to begin?
