a pre-show post

Published by Meghan at 9:15 am under knitting

i know this site isn’t technically open yet, but i wanted to write in here anyway. how are you listeners? i hope you are all doing well. i have to tell you, doing a podcast is wonderful motivation for getting knitting/spinning done. i feel i owe it to you to do something productive with my free time. fortunately, i enjoy what i’m doing, so it works out. accountability will make me a better knitter, i hope.

why then is it, that i can’t seem to get any knitting done. i knit, but then i end up tearing stuff out. tilted duster, frogged. wrist warmers knit with handspun, frogged 2 times now. bellatrix socks, frogged. am i cursed? or maybe my subconscious is telling me that i need to get another project done. one that i’ve been talking about for MONTHS now.

a sweater for owen.

i can’t decide what i will do. a tomten is an adorable sweater, but with he yarn i purchased for it, i won’t get the proper gauge so it will fit him. and unfortunately, EZ’s directions give you estimates for changing the sizing. no hardfast pattern to cling to, like a knitting security blanket. i know that she’s written that pattern several times, so maybe another version of it will shed more light? another one i thought to do, was one of EZ’s yoke sweaters with a simple pattern around the yoke. this one is all based on measurements and percentages, so it will ensure a nice fit. i wanted to knit a cardigan, so we can easily layer, so i could change the pattern up to make one in his size. but……that means i have to calculate…and plan….think ahead….i don’t know that i like the idea of that. we shall see.

i know…i SHOULD want to jump right in. i SHOULD want to knit things for my little boy. but i just worry it won’t be right. it won’t fit. or, he’ll grow out of it too quickly…imagine that. a child growing. the nerve!!!

so, i think this afternoon, i’ll make myself get out a couple of EZ’s books. i’ll see what guidance the master has for me, and i’ll start knitting some swatches. it’s thick yarn, so once i get the numbers worked up, it will be a quick knit. and hopefully, because it’s for my little boy, it will be an enjoyable one.

get ready brain….time to do some math!!!
