I'm throwing another project into the mix... this time a non-sewing project. I'm picking up the knitting needles after a year or so of leaving off unfinished knitting projects. I basically stopped knitting when I stopped working because I stopped riding the train, which is where I did my knitting. I also blame sewing and quilting.
It's out with the old, in with the new (knitting projects, that is). I decided not to pick up where I left off on the three sweaters I had going. Instead, I cast-on for the Maple Street Cardigan from the Fall 2009 edition of Interweave Knits. Although I love it in lavendar, I decided to knit it up in the Dark Green colorway of this yarn. Dark green isn't really an accurate description of the yarn- it's more of a teal color.
I hope I can actually finish this sweater. I have only completed two knitting projects. The first was a scarf I made for Tonio, from a cheap acrylic yarn which has pilled most horribly. The other was this cute little poncho for Martina in a nice silk and wool hand-dyed yarn.
My mother shrank it in the wash on her last visit here. Shrank it down to barbie doll size. I've promised little momma to make her another.
