My Mojo Returneth!

My first Australian summer in four year has been absolute torture and it has been a long time since I’ve done any knitting. The weather has improved a little over the last week and my long-lost mojo has returned with a vengeance! Now I have a severe case of project-startitis. I now have three pairs of socks on the go, one lace shawl and a vest.

Last July, I ordered some custom fibre from Hello Yarn to complement some of Adrian’s gorgeous handpainted Shetland. This was purchased with a view to making a brooklyntweed-style Striped Vest.

It sat in my stash until December - a week and a half at home with my parents gave me ample opportunity to get it all done.

Finally, I have a swatch, a gauge, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts’ Knitting in the Old Way and I’m all set to go!

    David, I so enjoy watching your spinning progress–makes me wanna try my hand at spinning. Did you start with a drop spindle or go straight into spinning with a wheel?

    I look forward to watching your progress on this vest! The yarn is totally awesome; it’ll be cool to see how it all plays out in the knitting.

    Isn’t it wretched when it’s too hot to touch wool? lol.
