No progress on any knitting project since Friday, I’m starting to feel like the biggest slacker around. Especially after seeing all of your gorgeous projects, and since I have an overachiever of a sister who is already working on her second sweater! I am so behind. My lack of progress my also be in part to the fact that I’ve cast on another project.
The pattern is Asunder, and at first I did feel a little guilty for having cast it on and working on it instead of focusing solely on Aidez, but as time goes on I have found that this is the perfect project to have on the needles at the same time. Aidez is a lovely pattern but it has a lot of cables, and while I’ve gotten the hang of it and I don’t have to watch every stitch on every row, it’s not quite as mindless as good old garter stitch. So I have been picking up Asunder after every few hours of working on Aidez – just to give myself a break. Or I’ll pick up Asunder when it gets late in the evening and my eyes start drooping. For me, that is never a good time to knit a project that requires even the littlest amount of concentration because it always ends in mistakes.
The yarn is String Theory sock yarn. It’s a great yarn, absolutely no complaints with it and I would definitely buy it again. They have some really great colors too. I was able to pick this up at one of my LYS, and while the price looks a little high ($26/skein) there are over 400 yards per skein!
So fess up fellow Nice & Knit-along friends — who else is two-timing their knitting projects??…or maybe even three, or four-timing?
