We'll be seeing this for a while

In January, everything I knit was done before I felt like it had even started and everything went far quicker than I expected. Bitterroot was done in ten days, and I knit 6 things in January, including a sock weight jumper, a hat, scarf, shawl, baby jumper, pair of socks - and not for me, with my teeny tiny feet. It was starting to feel like I was in Fight Club and my alter ego was knitting while I thought I slept. So, when I cast on Plivver I figured it too would fly by. Yes, it's four ply on 3.5mm needles, and yes it's lace, but I had precedence and arrogance telling me it would be done in no time.

For reasons I cannot explain it's slow going. But the Pear Tree yarn I'm using is beautiful and the pattern is quite enjoyable, so its not a problem at all. My main fear is I've taken a walk on the wild side and not swatched. I'm not quite sure why I didn't, I was just having a "swatches lie and this should have negative ease anyway" moment. Hopefully that won't come back to bite me.

So, coming up for the next three weeks on the blog, expect many updates, showing this grey lace blob growing very, very slowly.

  1. Yay! Finally a project to slow you down… if only it meant that my knitting would speed up!
