Every few months I dig into the basket of projects in my living room and start finishing things in a flurry. I think of it as a cleansing process, similar to what I do when I move or when I clean out my closet twice a year and donate clothes that I didn’t wear that season. For two days I have been cleansing. With so many amazing sweater projects waiting to be knitted, I am feeling a bit stressed about the number of projects sitting around the house waiting for an hour or so of attention so that they can be done. Last night I finished the Inga Hat. As you may notice, it is a tad on the enormous side. Just a tad. I think I am going to embrace the largeness and put a giant beanie on the end and wear it like a real hippy would, hanging off the back of my head. We have to work on Phil’s photo taking skills. He and the iphone don’t make pretty photos.
I also completed and blocked my Rusted Root. Very exciting! The sleeves aren’t as long as I wanted but I love it anyway. I used Debbie Bliss Cathay and the yarn is amazing with this pattern. It has just enough shine to make it pop and it feels lovely. Wearing it to work today!
