Been a long time…

I’ve been away for a long time, and really missed blogging here! ๐Ÿ™ But of course, being away from blogging doesn’t really convert to being away from knitting! So here are a few of the things I’ve been doing till now:

First I was working very hard on the Left Bank Cardigan. Unfortunately, I managed to lose (my one and only loss ever) my 3.75mm circular… and I don’t own a spare. sigh. Also the parents were at my place for health reasons, and I just couldn’t make time for shopping for more. Of course I could have shopped online, but it just didn’t make sense to pay Rs.50 delivery charge for a Rs. 45 item! So I decided to wait, esp since I’ve also got news that Pony is setting up shop over the last weekend of June. Well, the sweater will have to wait. But here are the pics of progress till now:

Also during this time, I changed the design on the scarves I was making for my father and father-in-law. I started with just one of them, and here’s my progress so far.

And as if I was without work, I also signed on for a test-knit for a Singapore based designer. Most of the design seems of stockinette and the remaining of cables. Another advantage is that its written. Dont have confidence in my chart-reading skills yet, so am just glad to have written ones instead.

Finally, 2 projects that have been long drawn out are a summer pullover in silk-cotton and a runner for my dining table.

So, cheers to a busy time ahead! ๐Ÿ˜€
