I finally cast on for that sweater Julia directed me to a few weeks ago. Why did that take me so long? I was sort of dreading following a pattern. My brain is overloaded these days, so I thought it would be too much. Guess what? It was really easy and actually quite calming to just follow directions.
I'm already through the (not so) tricky part, working on the body now. It may even be ready before the weather here gets so hot that I can't even think about wearing a sweater...
That other project? Yeah... well... it's coming along slowly. But please remind me never, ever to buy pink yarn again. I'm so not into that color...
So, my knitting To Do is simple for the next week:
- work on sweater (finish it?)
- work on bag (or toss it aside?)
I also have some sewing projects on my mind:
- make some skirts or dresses (I need more cloths and shops are closed right now - we're in a lockdown again. I do have enough fabric to make some simple skirts, I just need to get myself to do it)
- make some aprons to wear in the garden, with pockets that are sturdy enough for pruning shears and other smaller tools, but I also need a pocket to safely put my phone in (that's the only disadvantage of wearing sun dresses and simple skirts year round - no pockets).
