Okay!!! Don’t ask me why cause I can’t explain it. Sometimes there really is no rhyme to my reason. LOLOL!
I’m still swatching for Flax. I got side-tracked after this first swatch attempt but now this project is back in the fore-front of my mind. The Simply Cotton needed too many mods to work and for a newbie sweater knitter like me, I just need simplicity so I can focus on working through the construction. I’ll use that yarn another time — maybe once I get more sweater knitting experience. I also took a while looking through my stash for yarn. I have stuff that I’d like to use but didn’t have enough yardage. Since I didn’t find any other with the same yarn specs and yardage that was needed other than the KP Brava worsted in Fairy Tale — Fairy Tale it is.
I’m really working on having this sweater started before this week is over. Gaaaaaaah!!! Can’t believe I’m —><— this close to starting. 😀
What are you all working on?
P.S. This giveaway closes tomorrow — first day of spring, so make sure you enter if you see anything you like. Who knows, you might be starting Spring with a collection of brand new patterns!
Excited to see your sweater progress these swatches are gorgeous colors!
I’m very excited to start. Waiting for the last swatch to dry. Hopefully I made gauge.
Ooooh my! Gorgeous, gorgeous color!
Thank you Pearl. I am so excited to start. 😀
I love that color! I am supposed to be starting a yoga mat carry bag but I’ve been ill the last few days. I am going to try to be up and at em today though so we’ll see how that goes. I reallllly looking forward to seeing this sweater, hopefully it’ll make me brave enough to try one myself. 🙂
Do what you can when you feel better love. That bag is going to be there to be made once you’re well. As for a sweater, with your skill-set, I’m sure you can start one now.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the color and your stitches are so even and pretty and precise!
I’m working on a new lace shawl called Tristano in Regia sock yarn. Not so sure of my feelings for the yarn and how it will block out…we shall see. I start the first of 5 repeats of chart 4 tonight.
Thank you so much for your compliment Paula. It’s taking a while to get started but I really want to do it and do it well.
That shawl must be awesome already! You’re truly a lace maven!
