Real Fast, Before Christmas
I couldn’t help it. Journey has been calling to me from the end table all week as I scrambled to finish various crafts, gifts, and sleeves. Something came over me a couple of nights ago. Before I knew what I was doing, I had cast on for Inland and was almost through the yoke.
Check out the reverse stockinette body with stockinette sleeves! I have big, wooden buttons ready to go for this one.
I haven’t abandoned Ravello, and this isn’t a case of my ever-splitting attention span either. My hands just needed a break after so many tiny stitches on size 0 needles.
Besides, I was waiting for Sothern to completely dry for finishing anyway. So Inland is my prize for knitting color work and seaming seams. That’s a bizarre reward system, even by American standards:
If I make this thing that I want to make, and totally enjoy making, then I will have earned the right to make this other thing that I want to make and will totally enjoy making.
It’s like being rewarded for being rewarded. Whatever. I’m just enjoying a big, seamless project.
I am using Wool of the Andes bulky in porcini and wallaby for Inland and I can tell it will be a great classic jacket. I liked the two tone idea of RoHart’s version, on Ravelry, so I decided to do my pockets in the wallaby.
Ooo, so pretty! Love the colours you chose. You're so quick at knitting, it's amazing! I'm a little envious. 🙂
Thanks, Heather. I wanted this to be neutral and very wearable, so I went with the porcini. I am knitting faster than I used to, but I find the faster I knit, the bigger my queue, the easier it is to make mistakes, etc. I enjoy it as much as always, though.
