As I expected would happen when the new semester started back, I don’t have much time to knit. But I do try to take some time in the evenings for me. Just to relax and unwind before going to bed.
So progress on my Colour Affection (which I’m calling 80s Pop, that’s the name the colours told me) has been slow enough. I’m on the second section and have about 4 more repeats or 8 stripes to go before I add in the pink colour and start the short rows. I am so in love with these colours together, I can’t wait to add in the pink to see how it transforms the combination again.
I’m slipping the edge stitches purlwise to give a nice neat edge but because I’m such a tight knitter naturally, I have to make a special effort to make sure I leave these stitches nice and loose, particularly on the edge where I’m carrying the yarns up the side.
Right back to the books. No rest for the wicked.
