Hello, lovely knitters!
And happy Friday – long time, no see!
This is usual at this stage in a book, to my deep regret – but this time it’s for a happier reason: We spent last week camping at Acadia National Park, one of my favorite places in the world. Our turn-off-everything-and-hike-forever plan was just what I needed: A chance to unwind, remind myself what the boys look like, and share stories around the campfire.
Views like this didn’t hurt, either:
It was hard to leave, for sure.
I had scheduled a complicated tooth extraction immediately upon my return (I need to talk to my past-self, who DOES that to themselves?!), but enjoyed spending a hazy couple of days knitting and re-knitting the same 3 stitches, and checking out everyone’s progress on the spring/summer kal. Click the link, if you haven’t been following – there are some amazing sweaters so far this time!
And today I’m finally back to work, busily diving into the book with renewed energy and excitement. I really appreciated all of your excellent suggestions for what to include, they’ve helped focus my writing as I head into the last stretch!
Knitting-wise, the sweater samples are piling up fast and furious around here, now, and I’m finalizing the last few designs. I stole a few minutes to knit while we were away, but my knitting life is still mostly gray right now:
This sweater should be finished some time tomorrow, though, at which point I’m really looking forward to diving into some color:
…and that’s pretty much the state of things around here!
How about with all of you? What’s on your needles this weekend?
