Each Wednesday, I post a snapshot of the projects I’m working on, and where my brain is at.
Traveling for Thanksgiving means that the disembodied sleeve I began last week as good travel knitting, is a far longer disembodied sleeve now. Since the beginning this sweater has been fantastic mindless knitting – lots of long expanses of straightforward stockinette, with some interesting construction details to look forward to, and the sleeves are no exception.
I also finished up reading Folk Fashion by Amy Tigger Holroyd, it was a great read, and I finally found a use for these mustache post-it notes that I’ve never had a use for, but couldn’t bring myself to get rid of. The book made some interesting points about folk fashion in relation to the large scope of fashion, identity, and culture. If you’re at all interested in that, I’d suggest taking a look at this book. I’m also considering writing a more in-depth review of it (hence the notes).
In addition to all that, I’ve been going back and have started sprucing up the Shawl Geometry series of blog posts. I’ve got all the photos and graphics updated, and next up is updating all the text & patterns. If you’re new around here, this series of blog posts is what originally spawned the whole series of Shawl Geometry Books – you can start at the beginning of the series right here.
