Happy hump day!! March break is half way over and I’m half rejoicing and half going crazy. I seriously love not packing lunches and waking up early to an alarm. It’s some serious love here people. Add in the pajamas all morning, and I’m a happy camper. On the flip side though, having all three kids home all day creates a black hole in the fridge and pantry and way too much bickering. Ouie vay!
So far I’ve harnessed their energy and spring cleaned all the bedrooms. That was not a welcomed activity, haha!
But enough of that, you came to see the goods!
This week I’ve delved into my WIP stash and have pulled out my 11 month old Lush cardigan.
It’s such a beauty, I fell in love with the lace panel that shapes/forms the yoke and cast on with my only skein of malabrigo arroyo in azules colour way
Yes, you heard that right…I started a sweater with only one skein of, it turns out, a rather hard to locate wool. Not my brightest moment.
I searched two frolics, and countless stores before I found 3.5 skeins available for sale on ravelry.
I bought those bad boys lickity split
Unfortunately for lush, one I got past the arms and it was pure stockinette, it’s been hard to keep going. I hate purling. I also hate purling something like 400 stitches in a row. There is nothing like knitting a sweater in your size to make you seriously consider a diet. Excuse me while I go grab a celery stick….
Haha, kidding. I love you calories :p
So poor lush has had a few rows tossed on her this past fall/winter, but not much and not often. The past few weeks as I’ve been dreaming of spring I decided I needed to buckle down and get moving on lush as it would be the perfect cardi to walk to the bus stop.
Lush came with me to knit night last week, where my circular needles promptly broke! My needle genocide will need it’s own post, lol.
So that’s where I am. Knitting endless stockinette. But at least it’s in mal… Cause anything in mal is heaven!
