It’s been a while since I posted. I am seriously going to try to be a better blogger. However, I’ve been pretty busy lately with putting together applications for Master’s programmes and general back to uni stuff.
On the plus side, I’ve been working on my Cypress vest by Jared Flood. It’s so simple but so gorgeous. I’ve been knitting it in Cascade 220 Heathers which I (shockingly) hadn’t used before. It’s going to be seriously up there for me now with worsted weight yarns. I began shaping the v-neck yesterday, which has now made the project incapable of being carried around. I have to knit with 2 balls of yarn and since I was pretty unsure of how much I used, I just wound up the last 2 hanks into balls.
The photos don’t really do the colour of the yarn justice. When I’m all finished, I’ll get out my real camera and take some nice photos. My phone is a poor subsitute, but it’s also quick and I am an impatient woman.
Today I’m off to go sign up for the LRAM, which is a sort of teaching certification. I’ve been waiting a while to take it, so I’m very very excited to finally have the opportunity to take it. It’s definitely going to add to my workload, but the payoff in the long term should be huge. My next knitting task at hand? Figure out what to do with one of these beauties (either Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock (Lettuce wrap) , or Madelinetosh Pashmina (Kale)). I did not buy them together, although I must have had health foods on my mind!
Marijke out for now!
