Breaking My Own Rules

Yesterday I cast on a 4th project. I know 3 is my rule but for a couple of reasons it made sense at the time. I just couldn’t psych myself up to weave in the ends on the cowl. I didn’t get a change to knit yesterday until it was dark and I’d rather weave those ends in during daylight. I’ve also been thinking about Loopy Academy TAG. I’ve got one project done and I have two more to finish before the end of the year. With both of them on the needles I’m more apt to work on them instead of worry. Finally the baby blanket is getting a few rows every other day or so. I’ll panic about that soon enough.

The new project is One & Done by Casapinka. It’s a shawl with dropped stitches and a lace border. The yarn is Dyetastic perfectly sock in Feel the Beet. I’m about a dozen rows in and so far so good. My favorite thing about this pattern is that it is good for variegated yarn. I’m always happy to find a pattern that works well with variegated yarn.

    The colors are really pretty! I can’t see your photo on my WordPress reader. I had to use chrome. WordPress is being so weird right now. Just letting you know as I suspect others are having the same issue. If you make your image the featured image, it should show up. That’s what I’ve been doing on my blog.

    Rules are made to be broken, especially those you set for yourself. I like to have a small number of projects on the needles at the same time, each for different reasons and knitting situations. It sounds like your cowl is almost finished anyway! Enjoy your knitting!

    You can weave in as many ends as you do rows on your other projects, until you are ready to just be done with it! That yarn looks very fun to knit with!

    I like the colors in your yarn. Is it Loopy Yarn where you do this Loopy Academy? I ask b/c I’ve seen them advertise or be recommended on IG once in a while and it made me think of you.

    Love the colours. And, you can forgive yourself for casting on No 4 – I too had to start something new recently because the sewing up phase arrived as the evening fell and the light wasn’t good enough to sew up neatly. Can’t resist the excitement of a new project !
