one done and another begun.

...marc spent the last week in asia. I spent it knitting (with just a few breaks to walk, work and eat).

happy to have my february lady sweater done.

and loving my newest project - the wood hollow vest from through the loops.

it is a very fun departure from the lace of my last two sweaters. I've converted it to work in the round (vs a front and back that have to be seamed) and will work short-row shoulder shaping so I can do a three-needle bind off. the only finishing will be neck and arm bands. at least there's not a button band!

I still haven't figured out the right approach to knitting polygamy. but I do think one sweater at a time works best (ok, maybe two - I did buy yarn for two more sweaters this week and I'm kind of curious myself to know when I'll decide to start one of them!). combined maybe with socks, and an accessory project? or maybe I'll become a knitting monogamist... the pace of progress when all my knitting time goes into just one project. it's amazing!!

  2. Congratulations on finishing the Feb Lady...it's gorgeous. I can see why you have started the hollow vest - it looks fun to knit.
    Let me know if you figure out the solution to the knitting polygamy dilemma...
    Cheers~
