Whew! I completed a knitting commission this week, and learned something very important about myself.
When I’m busy knitting something on a deadline for someone else, I dream of a thousand more new designs than when I’m actually working on a new design.
So this yarn cake, and that yarn cake, and that blue, and that cable, and this lace, and that sweater, oh, and a giant lace and beads project… those are all getting cast on this week (or at least charted, so I can evaluate their design-worthiness).
I’ve been super inspired this week by the brain trust which is Instagram’s knitting community – so you can follow the daily progress of my knitting over there. I’m hashtagging the #grinchalong, the #summeroflaceandbeads, #projectsweaterchest, #knitsonik, the #sssalong (Selfish Single Skein knit-a-long), and #matchymatchykal.
Although I am doing mostly selfish knitting at the moment, there are a few gifts on my radar. I bought most of my Christmas gifts at the local Guild fine craft fair this year. So although I’m not the one making them, they are handmade and beautiful.
What are you knitting now that it’s freezing outside? Leave a link and make my queue explode.
