The other day my sister complained to me that I hadn’t blogged in ages – and she was right! And I don’t even have a good excuse for the last month! I finally defended and started my new job, oh and moved – so there has been a lot going on, but it’s starting to quiet down now.
So, I’m back. I have a lot of things backlogged to blog about; I’m going to try to get to them all in a week or two. But right now, I am excited about this:
This just came in the mail today! It’s 13 skeins of Briggs & Little Atlantic. 13! That’s a lot of yarn. But I’ll need it all – because I am making sylvi. I am so excited! Sylvi was my motivation during the last push to write my thesis. I promised myself that once I was done that I could make it. Well, try at least. The pattern looks a little intimidating, but I love a challenge!
In case you’re wondering why I’m knitting a heavy wool sweater in the middle of summer – I want to wear this as my fall coat, so I have to get a jump on it! Luckily Atlantic is a bulky weight yarn, so it won’t go too painfully slow. And, it will be a nice break after the laceweight from the Seascape. Which I did finish, I swear. I’m just waiting for a day with some sunlight to take some decent pictures – it just has to stop raining!
Off to swatch!
