Shocking, I tell ya!
Thanks to some focused knitting, I finished up my deadline project. It's had a bath and a block, and it'll go in the mail the first of the week. A few tweaks for the pattern and it'll be ready then too.
With that off my plate, I looked at the schedule and decided that I'd like to try to get a sample knitted for the Dallas/Ft. Worth Fiber Festival, which is the 1st weekend in April, where I'm vending again this year. (Also planning on Estes Park in June, and possibly Taos in October, for anyone in the vicinity of those!).
I have a brand-new yarn I'll be debuting at DFW, which is a great fingering-weight single-spun SW merino. It's got a gorgeous drape and it takes dye really nicely. I have another project which one of my completely wonderful and totally awesome sample knitters is doing for me. (She's a trooper - she took on several things for me, so I'd be freed up to concentrate on some other things I have to do myself.) With that pressure off me to crank out a bunch of other things, I decided I would reknit my Lupine Cardigan to have for Dallas.
I love this little summer/layering piece. A bit of lace, minimal finishing, and a fairly quick knit. This is where I stand (the colorway is Columbine) right now.
I'm not putting too much pressure on myself to get this done - it'll be great if it happens for Dallas, but if not, I'll take it to Estes with me. I'm working on another Sekret Knitting Project that I have a little bit of time on, but does need to move along to go to the test knitter, so I'll devote some time to both of these and see how they go.
All for now...
