The last two weeks have been a bit of a blur. Work has been busy, the weather has been gorgeous, and my head has been filled up with summer project ideas. There are so many things I want to make this summer, but as the weather gets better I know my knitting and sewing time will decrease, so I’m trying to rein in my ideas to something more manageable.
Due to my yarn shortage I had pretty much given up on hitting my June 1 Grace deadline. Quince & Co. shipped my yarn very quickly after I ordered it, but there’s a border and customs between them and me, and it can be hard to gauge how quickly things will get through (I have a vague memory of my original order taking a while to arrive, for example). To make myself feel better, I decided to spend the weekend sewing — L will be away pretty much all day both days, so my taking over the living room to sew inconveniences no one (except Ganymede, but she’s a cat, and thus gets no say).
I bought fabric in anticipation of two days of sewing, during which time I planned to knock out three tops. But then the very best wrinkle appeared in my plan: my yarn from Quince arrived yesterday! I’m starting to feel like this cardigan is fated for success (I really hope I didn’t just jinx myself).
I finished the first sleeve this morning and have only half of the second one to do, so I might still make my self-appointed deadline! I do still want to get some sewing done this weekend, though, so I’m my current plan is to knit today, with a little break to cut the fabric for one top. Then, tomorrow, I’ll be able to sew up at least one top in a reasonable amount of time, which should leave me plenty of opportunity to finish any remaining knitting.
This plan relies heavily on today’s productivity, though, and since it’s already early afternoon I had probably better stop typing and start knitting! Goog luck with whatever you’re planning for your weekend!
