In all actuality, I could have been finished with my Marion cardigan. Then, I started reading Game of Thrones. Why oh why did I do that??? Once I picked up the book, I put down the needles. It is so engrossing. Well, yesterday I finished the book and started to read Book 2 of the series. But, before I got completely engrossed in book 2 I did pick the needles back up to make some headway with my cardigan.
I am really enjoying the project so far. The cable does keep things interesting and stops it from being a boring knit. I am anxious to finish it. I am already dreaming about my next projects.
I plan on joining the challenge that Andi of Untangling Knots put out. I want to finish a Christmas sweater in 2014. I actually ordered the yarn for this Vivien sweater last summer but, I put off knitting the fingering weight stranded colorwork sweater. However, if I commit to working on this over the year then, hopefully I will be more motivated to finish it. I chose the colors red, green, royal blue, and parchment. I definitely feel those qualify as seasonal colors so, I am calling this my Christmas sweater for 2014.
The other project I plan on starting is Miette in an orange color. I will be using yarn from my stash because I am really trying to do some stash busting.
Well, those are the few updates in my life for now. I’ll keep you posted on the projects…
