I’ve slowed down. I’m taking a new medication and the affects has me sluggish a great deal until my system is fully acclimated. So, my productivity has slowed. I’m not worried because my energy level lowering happens from time to time. This too shall pass. As it is although not quite finished with Deep Blue Seas in which I’ve dubbed the colorway Oceans Blue I did take a better picture.
I ran into a number descrepancy with Rust & Stone so had a day to wait on the designer and found my fingers wasn’t to keen on that idea so this happened mere moments before Milja the designer was able to set me straight.
Which lead to this.
It hasn’t been touched since but, again I’ve slowed down. It’ll get done soon it’s relatively simple.
As for Rust & Stone?
I finally measured and picked the best size for myself and guess what?
I know I’m just as shocked as you but, then I had a feeling things would go this way. And I’m glad. Milja’s design is so creative and ingenious I recommend anyone looking for a cardigan to knit; make it. It starts a bit fiddly however it is well worth the effort to do.
I chose Ashton by doing something I’d always wanted to try but, didn’t trust. Pick a pattern name out of a jar. I did this knowing if I didn’t pick the one I wanted I’d do the one I wanted anyway. To make it fun though, I picked one and Mother Dear picked one.
I picked Ashton just as I’d hoped and Mother Dear picked Zilver which I told her I am more than willing to cast on next. And the endeavor was fun.
When it came time to put stitches on hold I was too lazy to find a needle so instead used a twist tie. It worked remarkably well.
The spinning project I had dubbed Clean Slate wasn’t working. I’m struggling to spin this merino – silk blend. So I divided the remaining unspun amount into three 30 gram parts which I will dye dark purple, deep green, and fall brown. Each color will be divided into threes also. 10 gram increments to be spun and plied together. It will be epic as soon as I get the vinegar to dye.
That’s the sum total of all my crafting parts for now.
