A Little Progress, and Fireworks!
June 13, 2021
Today is a lovely day. There are flowers on my table:
The sun is out, and I am on my porch writing a blog post.
The baby sweater came out cute:
My Double Scoop Shawl is going well:
It’s so pretty and so easy to knit. I think the back is as pretty as the front:
My spinning is about 2/3 plied. I have another bout of plying to do and then it’s done:
But the big news is the annual 4-day knit-along that starts on July 1! So exciting! The sweater this year is called Fireworks, in celebration of getting through this COVID mess and getting vaccinated and being able to be with actual people actually, and it’s all just pretty exciting.
The sweater is a circular yoke-necked pullover in worsted or DK yarn, designed by Marie Greene. She suggested using a tweed yarn, because the little flecks would be like the paper bits that fireworks leave behind, but you can of course use non-tweed yarn if you want to (I am using non-tweed yarn anyway). There is a description of the event here including pictures of the sweater!
I and my Knit Camper friends are pretty excited for July 1 to start. Many have swatched for gauge already. My yarn isn’t here yet, so I’ll have to wait, but that is just as well because it will give me time to wrap up my shawl knitting and my spinning, and then I can dedicate my time to Fireworks.
Get out and enjoy the sunshine! Happy knitting!
