I looked at the calendar the other day and realized February is next week, which seems strange, and yet the holidays feel very far away at the same time so I suppose those two things go hand in hand. It also turns out that if you do continuously knit away on a project, it will get knitted, which also requires passage of time, go figure?
I may yet knit myself out of Moss Stitch Island, which is a prospect that thrill me to no end. My Ossel dress now has more than half of its back done, and while it is entirely possible that I over-estimated how much length to add/modify before starting the waist shaping (this is worked bottom up, and I’m 5’9″), if I end up with a slightly higher waisted dress I am still good with that. I think once I get the front started I might find a new gear in the momentum. Maybe I’ll even get to wear this before spring? I’m dreaming big.
New Pullover Design is also moving along, and has both a back and most of a front which is extremely exciting. I’m especially looking forward to having this done because it is a wool/silk blend from Julie Asselin and the silk content is going to make it that extra little bit warmer in the cold months.
There’s a couple more months of sweater weather around here and I plan to take advantage of it! I hope you’re able to do the same, if you’ve got snow outside of your door.
Happy knitting this week!
