I would like to announce that having finished some contracted marking work, I am now
a) going to enjoy my holidays for a while and
b) looking forward to planning my trip to the Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show with my wages and
c) going to roll around in my stash in the meantime.
Therefore I have joined the StashDownUnder 2011 group on Ravelry, a group of Antipodean Knitters with more yarn than they really know what to do with, and the stated intention of making at least a small reduction in the pressure of all those skeins stashed in tubs and bags, lost in limbo as they await their turn to leap onto our needles to be transformed and reveal their true destinies!!!!
So, to Follow Through with this Intent, I cast on a new Liesl with a navy linen/cotton blend yarn picked up at the Big Spot on sale a year or two ago. I have tried to find something for this yarn for a while, because it is splitty and inelastic but promises to flop beautifully, and mid-bodice I am feeling hopeful! I have used 100gm, and still have 200gms so I’m sure I can manage a cardi with elbow sleeves with this lacy pattern!
Also I have created a KnitMeter button for myself, to try to get some accountability / incentivation / concrete recognition of my achievements.
NB looking for a funky picture tagged ‘attention’ I found this:
