Where is the
week month going? The semester starts next week … and, let’s just say, I’m trying to ignore that.
Scenes so far.
You know, I can’t complain about August. A certain Rooster stopped by Nashville last weekend and we had a delightful time together: good food, chatting on patios, walks in the park, ice cream, take-out, and a few adventures (planned and, um, not so planned). It’s so nice when online friends become real-life friends! Maybe next time we’ll even manage some knitting?
As you can see, August has been filled with many things … but not much knitting. I’d like to think that ideas are percolating. Many ideas about light-weight sweaters. Many, many ideas. Here are just a few of my favorites:
Larch, Paulie, and Hay;
Buckwheat, Alga, and Paris;
Audrey in Unst and Georgia;
Indicum and Tempest;
Manu, Whisper, and Featherweight
Mandel, Walnuss, and Boe (bonus points for German!)
I’m sure there are many more; I seem to be collecting them as I go. Any favorites that I’ve missed?
My dream project, however, is the slightly bonkers 4 Flowerpot Sweater from Icelandic Knitting Using Rose Patterns. I’ve gotten as far as shopping for yarn, reading through the directions, becoming very confused, and putting the book back on the shelf. I have not given up, though. Thing is, this is the kind of sweater I want to wear but do not want to knit. A dilemma.
But now: back to work! My knitting will have to wait …
