how'd that get there?
I don't know how it happened. I finished weaving in ends on my Front and Back Cable Sweater at knitting club last week, and so I cast on the for the Drops jacket, you know, just to have something to do, and after just a couple evenings of knitting this week, I had the back piece and left front panel finished, and now I'm halfway done with the right panel. And this includes an hour or so of working on it at knitting club, which is usually counterproductive to my knitting progress! I'm using Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky in plum, and size 10.75 needles. I'm not so sure about the color yet, but I can't complain about how fast this thing knits up! And I didn't knit at all last weekend because I was making jewelry like a fiend. Here are the pieces I am currently having a hard time parting with...
The silver bracelet isn't in the shop yet, but it will be.
So speaking of knitting club...is it over? My friend Kim says the word on the street is that the knitting fad is finished and that it's just the die hards left, now. It seems like there's been a decrease in knit club attendance over the past 6 months or so, and it kind of has a few of us scratching our heads. But perhaps those of us scratching our heads are such die hard knitters that we cannot comprehend why anyone would NOT knit. (Die hard, nerd...Tomato, tomahto.) Last week there was an article about our knitting club that appeared in a free publication, which may have enticed a few more people to show up for our knit nights, had I not come off sounding like a supreme ding-dong. Turns out, when your say things to reporters, they actually write them down.
Thank you, thank you, thank you all for your gracious comments on my Front and Back Cable Sweater! I felt some serious love from you guys. :)
