I’ve been terrible about posting, I know. But not for lack of knitting. I even took last Thursday off again, but the majority of my time has gone to organizing my life in boxes for the purpose of moving. That being said, don’t expect to see posts as often as before over here. I’ll be trying to get something up when I can, but moving and getting married takes precedent right now.
So, what am I doing in fiber terms? Well, I finished H’s flip-tops last week!
Still need to sew on the snap buttons, but there’s no rush. One nice thing about knitting for a season 6 months away I guess.
I’m actually having a really fun time knitting this. I’m not sure what it is about brioche, but I could do this all day. I mean, I could knit all day regardless, but there’s something really fun about brioche for me. Or maybe I do know what it is. It’s somewhat akin to how I felt when I first learned to cable. Maybe you’re familiar? When you realize that something that looked complex, interesting, or downright impossible has suddenly been produced by your own hands. When you think “Oh, that’s all it was. Nice!” What I’m saying is, try this stuff out. Easier than you think.
At this point, I’ve got a series of shallow and steep zigs and zags, respectively, which a color flip at each turn. I’m hoping I have enough yarn to finish this out to a good length and still finish off a repeat of the pattern cleanly. I’m not going back, so it may just be a short scarf. Oh well, I say! Onwards with the scarf, and onwards towards my last days of work and of living in Chicago! Hope your weeks are all shaping up to be exciting, too.
