Weekending #knitallthethings

I am behind on almost everything in my life with the exception of knitting. And honestly, all I want to do is knit all the things. So this weekend I loaded all my out of the house activities into Saturday and the took Sunday off from being in the world. I entertained the not so tiny person and when he took a nap, so did I. We played, read books, ate snacks, looked at worms and sticks at the park. It was lovely.

The weekend was also full of knitting. I cast on my Stopover – had to change yarn choices but still knitting from stash. I wanted to use that blue but I didn’t have the right contrasts so there is more grey on my needles. After checking with Kat, I stuck with the waist shaping as written. I have 4 inches left on the body. Then I am going to try knitting the sleeves magic loop and two at a time. I also made it to the sleeve divide on my Birkin. Now I have inches and inches of meditative stockinette to fill my evenings.

And now I guess I will tackle Monday.,

Friday’s rabbit hole

I have fallen down a lovely, yarn filled rabbit hole. I finished the color work on my Birkin and I am going to give the yoke a soak and blocking to make sure the fit is right before starting the body. And while I wait, I did a bit of swatching and I have enough yarn for a Stopover which means I can join in the Berroco KAL. This will be my first bottom up sweater and I am a bit nervous but the yarn is in my stash and the pattern is in my library so what do I have to lose?

Watch out for rabbit holes today.
