diving back into crochet

Each Wednesday, I take stock of the projects I’m working on.

It turns out that all I needed to dive back into my giant crochet cardigan was a couple days of cold rainy weather, a couple days with only one or two commitments, and the beginnings of a cold. Curling up under what’s basically a lap blanket, for a couple days, did double duty in fighting off my cold/flu thing, and catapulting my cardigan towards finished.

I’m about halfway through the final round, then I just have to weave in a pile of ends, wash and block the square, and sew a quicky seam. And then I’ll finish the first made-by-me-for-me garment since the self-made wardrobe project.

Also! The Great Northern Kickstarter campaign has just 64 hours to go (at the time of hitting publish on this post. So! if you’d love some Twin Peaks inspired gently absurd and entirely wearable knitwear in your life, go check it out. And if you want to know more about the project, here’s my interview with one of the designers.

  1. It’s amazing what some cold weather can do for your crafting mojo. I’m also battling a cold/flu atm but I’m still in the ‘too miserable to move’ phase, so not a lot of knitting is being done.

      oh no! The too miserable to move phase is just awful. I hope you feel super better soon Tahnee! And that your crafty mojo comes back.
