Knittin’, and Sewin’, and Thinkin’: Crochetin’?

April 10th, 2010 | 3 Comments

I’m suffering from a case of multicraftual startitis. This is what happens when you commit to too many knitting projects in advance and then…oooh, shiny!

Since finishing the Tangled Yoke Cardigan, I’ve started another sweater. Behold:

Vintage Blue Cardigan

It’s the Vintage Pink Cardigan that I first blogged about 2.5 years ago. I figured I’d get a jump start on it and try to finish it by January. Which is when it gets “cold” here.

I’ve also started some things destined to be gifts:

Tangled Up in Bobbles

So I have been knitting.

If by “knitting” you mean knitting and re-knitting the same section of sweater over and over again. I am now officially a working stiff (of the hellish-commuting/lots-of-overtime variety), which means on a good day I’ll get to sneak maybe 20 minutes of knitting before I pass out on the couch. Anything more complicated than stockinette is now completely beyond me.

Spring 2008 Interweave Knits's Auburn Camp Shirt

Given that the Auburn Camp Shirt was selected for Knitting Daily’s spring gallery, I strongly suspect that I’m not the only one who’s rather smitten with this top.

I love the little details, the subtle texture of the fabric, the turned-up cuffs (though I’d probably sew down that top to keep myself from going crazy). It has a nice fitted shape that can still be layered over a camisole. This seems like it would be eminently wearable for most of the year in Texas.
