I think it is safe to say I will not finish my cardigan in time for the ravollinic games. I would have been a lot further along if I was going to even make it. But right now I only have the bottom part of the body, almost to the underarms. It’s that pesky thing about time that keeps it from progressing more then it has. I wanted this done before stitches so I could wear it. I have to admit defeat on this one and just keep going on it until I can get it done. I’m trying to use what little time I have to knit on it and so far it helps, but not enough. In years previous I was able to complete everything because I had enough solid time in order to knit and right now I just don’t have it. I wave the white flag for mercy.
The Sweet Georgia fiber has been partially plied as well for at least a week now. I love how it is coming out, but it’s again that time thing. I did want to complete it before the next shipment came in so that I could feel accomplished. However yesterday I had a small package show up at my doorstep and inside was this month’s shipment of fiber. Now I knew that with a club you don’t know what you’re going to get at all, which I knew I wasn’t going to like all of the shipments. This one I really like the base because it is one that I really wanted to try, but I wish that it was superwash, that is not a big deal though. The color is one that I wouldn’t have chosen ever for myself. It’s not a bad color at all, I will spin with it as soon as I have the time, but I think this will be a spin and release, which means I’ll give or sell it to whomever wants it at the end. It’s a merino, silk, and bamboo blend, which I think will be so much fun to spin.
