Summer Sweater KAL again this year in an effort to finish up a few sweaters. My buddy Margaret has outright forbidden me from starting any new sweaters until I finished up some of the...more than I'd like to count...sweaters I already have on needles. And since I'm biting at the bit to start my Skogafjall, I'm focusing on some of my old wips.
But first, I have to finish the second sleeve and then button band of my Amiga, shown at the top of the post. It's probably going to be the most wearable sweater I'll ever make, but dear pete is it ever a boring knit. Stockinette stockinette stockinette in solid black. UGH just magically be done already.
a baby sweater right before the KAL started, and finished it within the first week of it. It's a store sample in Diamond Luxury Fine Merino Superwash Aran and A Simple Baby Sweater. Quick knit, though I found the instructions for joining in the round after the henley lacking. I added some notes on my Rav project page to explain it if you're interested. I love this little green sweater so much, and I'm tempted to swipe it and send it to my buddy who's about to have a baby!
Reverb sweater to reassess the sweater. It's so pretty, with this gorgeous yarn and lovely cables, and I was well past the arm divide when I put it down. But I put it down literally years ago, back in 2013, and my tension has loosened up considerably since then. There's no way I can finish this without it looking wonky, and the fabric was knit much tighter than I prefer now-a-days.
One of the reasons I've been so busy this summer is that I'm spending a lot of time with both friends and myself. I feel better every day, though I'm still struggling with some parts of our breakup last winter. I can't even believe it's been nearly 7 months, but I'm relearning myself and I like the person I'm finding. I feel like I'm finally lifting my head up after being weighed down for the last few years, so obviously this is a good change in my life. It's taken a while to admit that, but admitting it sure helped.
