…another pattern from Filati (Fall/Winter 2012-13)
The new project I mentioned on my Road-trip post is this beautiful Lana Grossa cable/lace sweater with 3/4 sleeves.
Although I was only able to eek out 6 rows on my Road-trip, I can tell I’m going to like this sweater. I’ve made it a definite selection for my Thursday Marathon.
Here’s my progress so far…
Hmm, I wonder…
If I was able to work on just this project for the entire 26.2 hours, would I be wearing it at the end? No, that’s not likely. But it wouldn’t hurt to try! Great, my main WIP is selected. Now to choose a backup project for those “just-in-case” scenarios, like
- I finish the entire sweater and I still have 20 hours remaining?
- I start getting sick looking at the same color yarn for 20+ hours?
- I knit the entire back and after measuring it turns out to be just the right size for a much smaller version of myself?
- I make a critical error that I don’t notice until I’ve knit past it for 12 hours and I can’t bear to rip it out (yet)?
So, off I go to gather
a few all of my other WiPs for those just-in-case possibilities. The thought just occurred to me that knitters are a bit like girl scouts: ALWAYS PREPARED!
Speaking of my Works-in-Progress…
The fact that I have so many is why I try to schedule a monthly Knitting Marathon. The opportunity to move at least one project to the finished column is very compelling. Join me on Thursday and maybe you will be wearing a new knit by the end of the day!
