good googly moogly.
The school, it seems, shall kick my butt this term – it’s my very last term of school (perhaps forever) and I have So. Much. Work. Seriously, I have all kinds of little assignments, all one after the other, rather than just a couple big papers like I was expecting. The calendar is filling up and I’m already behind.
That being said, I have a lot of reading and can knit while I read (at least, I hope I can with the readings this term). So maybe there will be some knitting content after all.
With the several sweaters I have on the needles already, I still had itchy fingers. So I cast on for yet another one…
A top-down sweatercoat thingy. It doesn’t have any buttonholes at the moment, so if I want to do something later it might be clasps or buttonloops or a zipper or, of course, I could just pick up and knit buttonbands later.
I’m quite enjoying the cabled raglan lines.
(Since I know someone will ask: it’s my own pattern.)
I’m using Elann Highland Chunky at a tighter gauge (18 sts/4″ on 5mm needles) to hopefully help curb pilling. And I’m using my new pink Denises! Yes, I already have a set. No, I don’t think that’s too many needles!
Off to do some reading. And maybe knitting, too.
