I’m here in Beech Grove, and it is lovely. Gorgeous weather and great women (many of whom are also knitters). As people shared updates of their lives this morning, I made good progress on Little Buddha’s longies. I have several knitting goals while here, and as usual I’m sure they are too ambitious:
- finish the longies
- make a pair of slippers for both my sons
- seam To Dye For together – I have finally finished knitting the whole thing! But there aren’t words for how much I’m dreading the seaming….
- finish the anthropologie-inspired capelet
I brought yarn for other projects as well – a whole little suitcase full – so if I finish all of the above (ha ha ha) I have enough yarn to do several soakers and some socks. While I was packing my yarn and patterns and notions, I discovered the Addi Turbos size 7 that I couldn’t find when I was packing for my trip to Georgia. I ended up buying more Turbos in Atlanta b/c I thought I must’ve been mistaken about owning that size. Now I own two sets of 7s – and both in 16 inches. The cost of disorganization. (Don’t you think this would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift?)
Am missing the boys terribly. But I must admit it is nice not to be perpetually preparing meals/snacks and cleaning up the kitchen. I swear it seems I spend half my life doing one of those two things. For 10 days I don’t have to do one single bit of meal-planning, grocery shopping, cooking, or clean-up for myself or anyone else. What a treat to get to be taken care of.
What kind of yarn are you using for your longies? What pattern? I need to knit the next size up for my son but want to give some different yarns/patterns a try.
Enjoy your trip; sounds restful!
Hi knittymama! I am using Manos del Uruguay, which I love, with the Little Turtle Knits Picky Pants pattern (http://www.littleturtleknits.com/). It’s a great pattern, very thorough, with lots of options. I’d highly recommend it!
