I’ll be the first to admit that, when it comes to knitting and crocheting, I’m not stretching myself nearly enough for what I know my capabilities could be.
One example of this is Continental Knitting. I have been meaning to switch over for years but have always found some excuse as to why I needed to knit English style.
No more excuses.
The next knitting project I start will be done Continental or will not be done at all. I’m going to make sure it is something repetitive and simple so I don’t frustrate myself too much but I need to get the practice in so I can properly adjust my tension.
I have a few contenders in the running. In no particular order:
- Rye by Tin Can Knits
- 198 yrds of Heaven by Christy Verity
- Easy Brioche Baby Blanket by Yay for Yarn Patterns
- Pine Forest Baby Blanket by Ingrid Aartun Bøe
Of course, all of this is coming after Camp NaNoWriMo and after the completion of my sweater and socks.
However, first I must get past this baby blanket. I’m going to knit on it every day from now until the 31st of March, for no less than four hours per day, until it is completed. This will be quite an entertainment as I’ll have just woken up during the wee hours of the morning when working with knitting needles…near my eyes.
That’s about it really. Nothing much else has been happening aside from my twin tomato plants developing sentience and demanding to be fed.
Until the next time, have a safe and fantastic journey around the Sun. Take care, my friends.
