Later this month, I’m heading to Knit City Montreal with my Knitting BFF, Victoria. We’re both very excited for our long weekend getaway, and on top of attending Knit City, we have a few other touristy things planning, including poutine, bagels, and other yarn shops.
One motivation for getting So Faded finished was wanting it done in time for Knit City. Safe to say, I met that goal easily! That said, depending on the weather, it might not be the best knit garment to bring along. Granted, it’s been on the chilly side here in southern Ontario, but who knows what 10 days time will bring for Montreal. So, I’ve started another project hoping to finish before our great weekend away.
This is another one of my projects I organized earlier this year. I cast on Magna Flora (RAV LINK) by Alisa Hartzel with three skeins of Berroco Weekend I bought for a steal at a LYS. I began this project in mid-April, and it’s coming along quickly. The yoke features the lace detail, providing interest, and once I separated for the sleeves, I went ahead and got that step finished. Now, all yarn I have can be dedicated to the body, and I can either knit until I’m happy with the length or until I run out of yarn.
This sweater might be a better piece to pack for a May weekend as it’s short sleeved and cotton/acrylic, so a little more tolerable than a sweater made from wool blends.
So, that’s the new goal. Hopefully rounds and rounds of stockinette go fast enough to get this done by deadline!
