Summer knitting?

Well, it seems like I've been very bad about writing in this little blog. Then again, I haven't really been knitting all that much! I really should start on the slippers that Jamie wants, but I still have 2 projects on the go that I haven't finished yet.

The first is the Kyoto sweater from Knitty. I've been working on this sucker for probably 1.5 years now. I have one more sleeve to finish before I can start sewing up all the pieces and finishing the edging at the neckline. Lots and lots of stockinette with absolutely no variation. Very, very boring. But after that's done, it's the terrifying stage of FINISHING!!!

The second thing that I've started is my very own Clapotis. Remember that purple variagated Manos that I bought that I was going to use to make a bag with? Well, I changed my mind yet again. So, while I was on my trip to Japan (and sitting on planes for many many hours), I finished all the increases. But I haven't progressed any further with it. Yeah...I totally suck. I also think I might need one more skein of the yarn. I think I'm going to have to order it off the internet or something. You can obviously tell that I'm very concerned about dye lot matching ^_~ I figure, it's variagated and hand dyed anyway, so each sken usually isn't quite the same anyway.

Hopefully you've had a more productive summer of knitting than me...

My summer knitting has slowed down considerably too....mostly because it's been WAY too hot recently. But hopefully I'll have something to post about soon!

Welcome to the world of Clapotis-knitters! Have you gotten to the dropping stitches part yet? That's fun. =)

Haven't started dropping stiches yet. I think that's in the next part. Unfortunately, my knitting has come to a complete halt. I'll show you the reason in my next post ^_^

You in suspence yet? ^_^
