it seems our little family is having a hard time getting into a routine this new year. have you been finding this too? we've been so fortunate that the hubs has had great holiday time. he's back to work today, and then what? it's the weekend. and next week thursday he's on vacation again. it's nice. but i'm not trying to rub it in. noo please don't think that. there are plenty of times when he has to be gone a long time... months even... so it all evens out. umm well no he's still away more, but you know what i mean.
i am determined though. i will find that routine! and our family will love it. it's the dutch in me. i can't help it. i'm just so stubborn. haha.
but since it's practically the weekend... let's chat about what i should be knitting... apart from this awesome skew kal.
but you'll see more of that on monday ;)
...already the classes i'll be teaching are off to a very strong start. i am so excited by this!! and the next class after the intro to knitting will be jane richmond's classic raglan pullover... for women! woo hoo!
sooo i need to have the sample knit up quick as a wink... because the class starts on this has been in my que ever since the pattern was released... and i was wanting to knit it up even before then (because lucky me has jane in my knit nights, so i got to see this baby early on). the class starts on the 27th... that's three weeks people! and i'm still gonna be knitting my skews... i can do it! :)
the yarn i have chosen for myself is cascade 220 (which i'll show you later), but i need to knit the store sample first..and that will be knit with diamond's galway worsted.
i've chosen a very basic colour...an off white... but you can do anything with this pattern, really.. i'm excited to begin it!!
and for those of you locals who really want to learn to knit a sweater.. this is a great class!!! and i just bet this sweater will be a staple in my wardrobe. i just bet. ;)
how is your weekend looking so far? will you get lots of knitting time in? have you found your groove for the new year yet, or are you still fine tuning the family routine. come chat! i could use your company today... and i like you. xo
