Ever have one of those projects that just seems to be a log-jam for future projects? With my list of to-do projects, I’m glad to clear my current project bottleneck.
My Current Project Bottleneck
I was just realizing how much I’ve been dreaming of my next project. More accurately, projects.
I ordered yarn for the Anica Shawl by Alina Appasova. It was designed using Urth Yarns’ Uneek Fingering, which I love. So, I ordered the kit.
Then I saw Charles Gandy’s design, the Aha Wrap.
Fingering weight yarn and interesting stitch patterns interspersed with garter. Right up my alley. So, I purchased that pattern.
I’ve also been fiddling with my Circular Sock Knitting Machine
I’ve been asked to bring it back to the Men’s Knitting Retreat in May, so I’ll need to make sure it’s in good working order.
Spinning Nic White’s alpaca/silk roving is also a high priority.
Which means I’ll need to finish up the Jacob spinning I’m working on.
I also have some knitting samples I need to make for a workshop on Helical Striped Knitting the retreat and a handful more of other ideas bubbling around in my brain.
So, I’m glad to have cleared my current bottleneck.
The only way to break through a bottleneck is with concentrated effort. In my opinion. So I powered through the last inch or two of the Lengthwise Linen Stitch Scarf.
I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. It’s 60″ long and 5″ wide.
Smaller than I expected, but I love the fabric and the richness of the colors.
While I won’t be knitting another one of these in a LONG time, I am still loving how nice it is. Soft drape, smooth, vibrant and warm. All that I want in a scarf.
