Today I am feeling rather sick so I’ve spent the morning on the couch, watching the downton abbey season 2 finale (omg yaaaay!! 🙂 ) sipping ice water and eating this:
French toast with raspberries and peachy deliciousness.
I’ve also been plugging away on larch. I am doing a test knit for Kessa (see it here, isn’t it beautiful? Can’t wait to get the pattern and the yarn, and get started!) soon, so I’m trying to focus EVERYTHING on this Larch before I am able to start Lapis. I really want to finish Larch within the march 31st goal but also want to totally dedicate to the Lapis once I get started. Luckily the sleeves are great travel knitting, so that’s really helping! I still guess I have about a week before I start the test knit so I’m going to try and do this. The first sleeve took about 3 – 4 days so you never know, I might make it! Do you think I could start on the front ribbing before I finish the second sleeve?
So, progress since last week:
finished back, did shoulder shaping, and did the 3 needle bind off (my first time – holy crap, its magic!)
Started and completed 1st sleeve
Finished ribbing of 2nd sleeve
I think I did pretty well. Finishing my socks of love really helped get me back in the mindset to work on the larch. Now with everything being so close to finishing, and Threadpanda being DONE her larch, i feel like I really should catch up! With that in mind, maybe I should get back to knitting! 😉
