Forgive me, this will be a scattered, grocery list sort of post with too many links. Oh, well.
Soapbox aside, I’m thinking of trying socks with the magic loop method, two at a time, and toe up. No doping here.
That would have been enough to give me a taste of group knitting, but the thing is I’ve been seeing a couple of very active online knitting groups that make me want more togetherness. Look, I can do quiet isolation, really, but it’s nice to have options. The only time I seem to be working on a common goal with other people these days is at church. This is a worthy, huge goal, but along with the importance of the message, there is the good feeling of accomplishing something in the presence of friends. So, when I saw that one of luvinthemommyhood’s suggested sweaters for the Summer Sweater Knit Along was the Campus Jacket that I had just queued and bought the yarn for, well, it sounded like fate to me.
So today is Day One of the Summer Sweater Knit Along and I just signed up. I have a half finished Holla Knits top on my lap and the yarn for two more burning a hole in my closet. I have the thick and thin to try this one again and the yarn ready and waiting for my Knit Along jacket, only I know I’ll have to interrupt that for the Sock Put event. I won’t even go into the other three projects I have waiting and ready.
I just need to finish up Vacation Bible School tonight and my mind will be free for all kinds of crafty plans.
