I’m feeling sad that the summer is almost over. My daughter’s return to school next week with the oldest one starting high school! Where does the time go? Knitting has been slow as I’ve been concentrating on finding more clients for my graphic design company. However I did manage to work on some dishcloths earlier this month when I went camping. There are few aspects of camping that aren’t my favourite, but overall I love it. Being out in nature just feels right, like I’m returning home after a long time away. I suppose knitting is like home to me too. It comforts and warms me when I knit making me feel so calm. Here’s a little camping and knitting for you:
I’m happy to have jumped back into my knitting projects shortly after a quick trip to British Columbia for my cousin’s wedding. As a side note I live in Ontario so I supposed it’s really not that quick of a trip. When I returned I was so jet lagged it took me a few days to get back to knitting as I tried to convince my body when the proper time to eat and sleep was.
Below is my progress on my plarn yoga mat strap which I’m happy with so far. It’s a double ribbed item and as you can see the plarn doesn’t have the same distinct look as regular yarn. It is a bit messy and I actually don’t mind that. As I try new things we’ll see what garter and stocking stitch looks like.
I came across this chart creating website today called Stitch Fiddle and wanted to share it with you. I can see myself spending way too much time playing around with it, creating all kinds of knitting charts. In my stash is a bunch of single balls of yarn that the girls and I dyed with Koolaid a while back and this chart creator is just the thing I need to figure out how to use them.
