Happy Wednesday everyone!
We are enjoying a crazy week of alternating hot and sunny days with ones filled with torrential rain. It has been wild.
I have been spinning a lot but I am trying to focus some time on my knitting. I am trying to knit the Alberta vest for my husband by the end of July as it is supposed to be my "N" project for my LYS' AlphaKAL (N is for Noro).
It seems to be knitting up just fine but I am suffering from a serious lack of motivation because it just. feels. wrong. to be knitting an alpaca and wool sweater in the middle of this heat!
I am considering abandoning ship. I need to finish it by the beginning of October for our anniversary, but maybe it would be ok to put is aside for just a little bit?
Which means I need a new "N" project. I am considering knitting A Noble Cowl by Emily Kausalik. Yarn contenders from my stash would be to use some Debbie Bliss Pima in blue, Bendigo alpaca in a blue-green colourway called Oceanic, Louisa Harding's Grace Silk & Wool in a shiny brown or some organic merino in a tonal mint green and brownish colourway.
What would be your choice?
Please help me get through my decision making issues so I can take it away with me on holiday this weekend and knit away my guilt for ignoring that sweaty vest.
Hope you are enjoying some season appropriate knitting in you rneck of the woods. Don't forget to check out tons of WIP inspirations through Tami's Amis.
