One of the upsides of having multiple WIPs going at the same time is that there is always progress to report on something. This hat is getting close to the point where I should start thinking about crown shaping.
.
Just kidding. Thinking about the crown shaping is where I start when designing a hat. I’m just getting close to the point where I will actually start it.

Another day, another sweater quantity of yarn. I know what I’ll be doing for the rest of the summer... Thanks @hillsboroughyarnshop!

It’s finished and blocked. All that remains is having the pattern edited and tested. Look for it to be out this fall.⠀

I have a couple projects on the needles right now but I couldn’t resist some nap time swatching. .

I’m a firm believer that yarn will tell you what it wants to be. When it works it just works and you can’t force something that isn’t meant to be.

I picked up this gorgeous merino/yak blend this week in Ohio. It’s going to be a sweater of some sort. I just need to finish my current sweater WIP so that I can start swatching and see exactly how it’s going to end up.

I’m about to turn the brim on my hat (the one project I brought with me to Ohio). I do love how the speckles are working up in the pattern.

The colorway is Cotton Candy Conundrum from @iriayarncompany.

The end is in sight! One thing I love about knitting top down raglans is the minimal finishing. Once you cast off the sleeve all that is left is blocking and weaving in ends—so at this point I am practically finished.

I do enjoy knitting on the beach, but it isn’t exactly the most productive of pastimes for me. Does anyone make great progress in a WIP while lounging in a chair with a cocktail?

I really wasn’t happy with the cast on edge of the hat I cast on while in Serengeti so I’m sitting on the beach and starting again. Tubular style.

Just doing some normal, everyday (I wish) type knitting poolside last week. In front of the pool is the hotel’s own watering hole. It’s so fun to just chill and let the animals come to you. ⠀

Check it out, I’ve finally reached the bottom ribbing. Next stop: sleeve island!⠀

This is what my lap looks like while out for a game drive. I had to cast on a new WIP as my other one is far too large to fit in the same lap as my camera and zoom lens.

I am in love. Since it’s top down I’ve been trying it on periodically as I knit and oh boy. Let’s just say I can’t wait to get it off the needles and wear it for real. There is a photo of it on in my stories if you want to sneak a peek. ⠀

I just want to snuggle this.  Seriously. I’m thinking of knitting a massive one for the foot of my bed.⠀

Over two years.  That is how long we've been here and how long I've been knitting in solitude while missing the social aspect of a good knit night.⠀
⠀
Well, no more.  I've finally found and gotten in with a stitch and bitch group.  To say it's a welcome change would be putting it mildly.⠀
⠀
How about you?  Do you have a good knitting group?  Not have one and want one?  Not have one and are happy that way?⠀
