It’s official. I’m quite sick. It’s odd knowing you’re tired have no energy, and a slight cough to “mild bronchitis”.
Knitting was hard the week between Christmas and New Year’s. Well everything was hard to do other than sleep. I’m on the mend now and slowly getting my knitting mojo back. So much so I actually finished my Storm Tracker Sweater.
It’s knit in Neighborhood Fiber co. studio worsted in the Georgetown color way. I will block it this weekend and get to adding it to my sweater family ASAP. It also means that I am able to get back to the sweater I started at Rhinebeck. Also in studio worsted, this one is knit from the bottom up and called Crazyheart.
Can you tell I really want to get to the color work?
Last year, was a banner year for knitting sweaters. A friend I attempted 12 sweaters in 2018. I did not get to 12. More like 5 completed sweaters, including a NaKniSweMo sweater with a couple days to spare, unlike NaNoWriMo which was abandoned after a couple days. 80% of another sweater and started a few more.
And I have to say, the sweater bug has not passed. I really want to finish up my Storm Tracker (5th photo) just the rest of the last sleeve and my Crazyheart 4th photo and my poor oft languished Royale (2nd photo).
The finished sweaters from the bottom up are Ommegang, So Faded, Zweig, Sipila, and Tarian. And I think after finishing some of the sweaters in progress I will be looking to knit more sweaters this year. I still have an abundance of sweater quantities of yarn.
I may not aim for 12 sweaters this year just because it felt like I wasn’t allowed to knit other things, so maybe just some sweaters. I also like knitting small things, like I’d like another pair of actual gloves, rather than flip tops, as there are times where I really don’t need the flips. Its a small thing, but a project that took away sweater time always made me pause.
So this year the sweater adventure is more vague. I want something else with all over cables, another yolked sweater, and maybe a cardigan.
