I was feeling like I had a touch of startitis lately. I figured I’d run around and take photos of all the starts so I could post the craziness. Accountability keeps me going….Turns out it was just a FEELING of startitis.
I did actually start 3 sweaters but it’s not the extreme startitis I thought I had. 3 sweaters isn’t unusual for me to cast on for in a week, though many would consider that a serious case of startitis.
First up, Dad needed a new sweater. He said he didn’t but a few months ago he picked out the pattern and the yarn so I’m guessing he’s just being a pain in the butt now. It’s one of his favorite pass times after all. in case you were wondering, yes, he’s the one I got that habit from.
It’s the sweater “Jack” from Men In Knits using Cascade Eco Wool
That’s a sweater that takes a bit of concentration with the cable and all. I like to have a simple project on the needles and I feel myself getting close to finishing 8goingon20’s Tomten:
So I wanted to start some other mindless thing. In walked Dacapo by Hanne Falkenberg
People called it a boring knit with all the garter and when driving or when I can’t concentrate, that’s what I need. Mindless. I got started and it’s not mindless. I wasn’t able to concentrate enough to even work on it much at the time I had started it. It’s not something I can work on while on the go.
I’ll eventually probably finish all of these sweaters but for now I’ll probably be working on Tomten, Lady and Jack until they’re completed. More details are on my Ravelry.
