Adios, September! You were a crazy month of busy-ness and terrible weather (…okay the weather was pretty nice in general but not for September—so many sweaters, so few days of appropriate temperatures) and I will not be sorry to see you go. Especially since tomorrow is October and October means RHINEBECK. Bring it.
At least I did finish a thing this month—my Iron Maiden came off the needles, which was really helpful, because I needed those needles for another project. One day I will either miraculously become a monogamous knitter or I will own an adequate number of size 6 needles.
I made progress on a few other projects but I also got mired down in secret projects so that’s all I have to show for knitting productivity.
I did, however, write up a two part post on knitting your first sweater. Part one talked about choosing the pattern, which is a pretty crucial step, and part two dived into yarn selection and choosing a size. I hope people found them to be helpful posts, and I’d love to see your first sweaters (or any sweater, really—I love seeing people complete projects!).
I wrote about my favorite fall sweater (and see Andi’s round-up on her blog). And I reviewed Kim Hargreaves’s North pattern collection in another live tweet review. Pinterest felt my wrath (or whatever) when I complained ever so eloquently about misleading text and bad links on the site.
And I still haven’t started my Stoney Brook but I have so much time. (Or so I keep telling myself.)
Goal 1: No buying yarn Win! I did not buy any yarn this month.
Goal 1b: Knit the queue I only started one new project and it’s for a swap, so while I didn’t knit the queue…
Goal 2: Selfless Knitting …I kept plugging away at selfless knitting with two of the projects I worked on as I had time this month.
Goal 3: Finished WIPs Finished my Iron Maiden! Made good progress on Daqin. Everything else pretty much languished.
How was your September? And what are you looking forward to in October?
