I first wrote upstream, but I think knitting Blue Canoe has been such easy knitting that it has really been flowing with the current and I can’t complain at all!
Last night I got some uninterrupted knitting and got through all the bust shaping on my front. I forgot that uninterrupted means that I have to operate the remote control which is distracting so I didn’t make as much progress as I had hoped, but I was pretty optimistic at the outset. I did add about 4″! I am at about 11.5″ and I need 13″ to get to the armholes. Definitely doable tonight.
I am not usually such a monogamous knitter, but I am really trying to change some bad habits, and going for results a little more than I am naturally inclined to do. This is hard, and I can practically feel my hands itching to move on, but I am going to stay focused. Even with that, I predict it will be this time next week before I finish. After tonight I don’t see a lot of knitting time until Sunday.
Today I proofread a pattern that will be in the book Dreaming of Shetland fundraiser book for Deb Robson‘s research (coming in the fall). I’m excited for this to come out because I love how the pieces I made came out in Elemental Affect‘s Shetland Laceweight. As we get closer to release I’ll get links out there. All proceeds will go to Deb Robson’s year of research! Photos are courtesy of the book editors.
