Y’all must be tired of this now — the endless swatches, the yarn agony, the inability to meet gauge after washing a million swatches — it’s okay, y’all can tell me the truth. I know you want to say “just start already!!!” I feel exactly the same way and now, beginning is finally here. 😀
I should have started this sweater 3.5 weeks ago since it’s my Harry Potter Knitting & Crochet House Cup project. Yeah … I signed myself up for that. The thing is, the submission date for completion is July 31st. You got it! I have 37 days to knit like the wind and finish this sweater. Flax … the bane of my sweater making existence. But you’re so pretty … I can’t break up with you even after this kind of swatching abuse. 😛 It didn’t help that my surgery recuperation did NOT turn out the way I thought it would so I lost more time than I expected. Le sigh.
Distract yourselves from my crazy “I’mgonnadothisinamonth” talk by the pretty shades (magenta and pacific) of Cascade 220. Pray for me! And yourselves, cause this is all I’ll be taking about crafting wise for the next 37 days. Yeah … get use to it! 😀
At least I have the yarn caked. Whose going to give me points for that? 😛
Such lovely yarn cakes. You can do it, yes you can!!!!!
You rock! Thanks for being part of my personal drill team! 😀
Yay!!! Your colors are amazing and I definitely give you points for having all your yarn caked ahead of time. You’re going to do great!
Thank you Sweater She-ro! You know you’re going to be on speed dial right? 😛
You can do this, no sweat! We are hear to cheer you on so keep on posting.
May your needles be on fire.
Well it seems I can’t spell…that should be here, not hear, sorry.
I love it! Here’s to fiery needles! 😀
I can’t wait to see it! You can do it!!
Thanks Dana! It’s really exciting! 😀
Also yarn.com had Cascade 220 paints on a closeout so I went ahead and picked some up so that I can start my Flax sweater soon too! I’m really trying to embrace my selfish knitting phase. LOL
Me too!!!! I need to selfish knit. I need socks and hats. Couldn’t believe I call myself a knitter but had no hats last winter. Shame, shame, shammmmmme (in my Jill Scott voice) 😀
Can’t wait to see the colours you picked for your Flax. If I wasn’t trouble shooting plant issues today, I’d be cranking out the neckband tonight. Tomorrow night though … I’m on it!
