catching up

Exploration Station 


Madewell 




Sorry for the radio silence but things became crazy busy once August hit. My mom was here visiting from Vietnam which is always so fun. I miss her already. And then back to school happened and we are still adjusting to the change in schedule. Having to wake up super early is probably the hardest thing for us to get used to. Especially when I stay up way past my bedtime knitting. There has been a lot of that going on lately. I have been trying to finish up some lingering WIPs which is such a great feeling. But there are some new cast-ons as well so it all balances out in the end. I finally started a new sweater, my first for the year. I am making surprisingly fast progress on it, considering that it is knitted with fingering weight yarn. The color fading definitely helps to make the knitting more fun and compelling. I am also looking forward to the Speckle & Pop! Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL starting this Friday. Just need to finalize my yarn choice. I can't wait to catch up and see what you all are knitting & making! Are you giving into the urge to cast-on all the shiny new Fall things?

  2. YES! I want to CO but dadgumit I have two FO's to block and that damn, colorwork top is sending out hairy vibes from the coffee table. I love how your mum visits. Love the yarn you chose for Madewell too!

  7. Oh yes love the Fall knitting bug has bitten- big time.
    All of your knits are not helping my will to not cast on everything. Isn't it fun when a sweater is such an enjoyable knit that even in fingering weight, progress can be made?
