Whole Lotta Knitting Going On…

Greetings, yarny people! I have been knitting a lot lately. Finishing Carolyn’s Shawl was good for my knitting mojo, and I have been busy since. I have started and restarted it, but I think I am on a roll now:

Mine will be dark purple, dark lime green and dark blue. For some reason I always have trouble getting started with this pattern even though it is simple garter stitch and basic increases, but I think I am on a roll now. I had hoped to be on the second color this weekend but I am a little behind. I’m hoping that will happen before the end of the week.

I’ve also been working on some colorful dishcloths:

I have some dishcloth cotton in lots of bright, solid colors, and my intention was to make a pile of solid-colored cloths to represent the rainbow. But, when I pulled out my pink one, it was faded from the sun, so I only had enough yarn in that color to make part of a dishcoth. I used some rainbow colored yarn with it. So, now, my plan is to make each cloth with a random bit of rainbow yarn mixed in somewhere. I think it will work!

I have made a pact with myself to knit every day. It felt SO good to actually finish a project that I really would like to do it more often! So I need to make sure I get at least some knitting done each day, so that I keep moving forward.

So, this will be, for me at least, the summer of knitting. A lot.

    Good! We know it’s a fact that knitting is good for the spirit in terms of being a relaxing, almost meditative act. I find it soothes me in moments of stress. As you know, I rarely finish anything but I’ve always got several projects going. I take my knitting everywhere much to the dismay of my non-knitting friends and relatives up here. They just don’t get it. 🙁
