WIP Wednesday

For a while these had been wordless, because I was usually rushing, or because I’d already talked about what was on the needles ad nauseum, but today, I’m going to be a little wordy about my work in progress.

This is my Admit, a free pattern from Norah Gaughan and the Berocco team. There’s something seriously wackadoo with the yardage listed on the PDF—it calls for 6 skeins, for the smallest size, of Berroco Modern Cotton, but then lists 627 yards as the most yards needed, and Modern Cotton comes in 209 yard skeins. So I purchased 4 skeins of Modern Cotton in the Matanuck colorway. It’s a pretty minty-blue shade and I’m actually enjoying knitting with this cotton (it’s a blend of cotton and modal, so not too stiff or hard on the hands, and not quite as heavy as cotton can be).

I started this a couple of weeks ago, to play along with Very Shannon’s Tops, Tanks, and Tees Knitalong. I’m going through a rough time right now, with regards to a lot of things, and in the midst of doing a lot of deadline work and projects for other people, I needed a moment to be selfish and make something for me. If I’d been able to work on this full-time since I cast on in mid-May, I’d probably be done by now, but I was also trying to finish knitting a scarf for my mom before she went on vacation (today; it was finished and in the mail last Tuesday).

I still have three and a half baby blankets I want to churn out, so I’m hoping to get back to at least the half-finished one soon, but it feels really nice to be knitting something for me right now.

What are you working on?

  1. Oh man, I joined the KAL for pretty much the same reason: going through a hard time begs a little time to knit something for oneself, right? I hope it’s been a good, healing indulgence! xoxox.
