Three weeks into the Oxacan sweater and we have a front, a back, and possibly a third of a sleeve.
Over a week ago, I finished my last spinning project.
This merino top in Herbal 2 from Yarnwench proved to be a delightfully quick spin.
I tried to do a slightly thicker yarn. 4.2 oz turned into 360 yards of sport weight goodness!
While I wanted to immediately dive into more spinning, I decided to retire the wheel for the moment and concentrate on knitting.
In the past, I would have knocked out that sweater in less than three weeks.
Despite the relative monogamy, I am merely plodding along. As of this coming Monday, I will officially be a month into this project.
The pattern and actual knitting are easy and uncomplicated. The yarn is divine!
I just find I would rather sit and do nothing than work on it.
THAT NEVER HAPPENS.
As in, I never just sit and do nothing.
I must be ill or exhausted, but I feel fine and seem to have a good bit of energy. Moreover, if I had not consciously and intentionally parked the wheel for the moment, I would be spinning.
I have even been weaving. I knocked this tea towel out in about half an hour yesterday.
It appears I have just lost the knitting mojo...
However, I am determined to finish this sweater!
Wish me luck.
