Happily, I spent most of Mother’s Day knitting and enjoying a beautiful day. I contemplated the projects on my hooks and needles. Most of them are on needles smaller than a size 4. I’m beginning to feel the effects of those smaller needles and it’s not kind to the hands.
I feel the desperate need to finish something so I will feel justified starting something new and on larger needles
It’s not that I’m no longer interested in what I’m working on, I’m just getting a little bored. Projects on smaller sized needles just take longer.
I’m at the halfway mark of the Forest Sprite Vest. There is little or no finishing involved, so when I’m done with the knitting, I’m done. This should be a nice sample for the shop. The yarn is Knit One, Crochet Too Pediwick. For all you non-animal fiber people, it is a Bamboo/Nylon blend, very nice to work with.
(As a side note to today’s post, my computer screen needs to be replaced, and I’m using my husband’s computer. I can’t find his photo editing software, so you get a birds eye view of the clutter surrounding my day.)
The pattern is well written and is a great beginner lace project. It blocked out beatifully.
Time to sort through my stash and see what piques my interest. Definitely a pleasant way to spend Mother’s Day if you ask me.
