dusktreader knits

  1. I had stopped knitting for a long time after I completely stopped caring about whether or not it looked like I was paying the slightest amount of attention to class and started bringing my laptop every day. I think I was also in a weird limbo zone where I didn’t know what to knit anymore, as I’d gotten good enough that semi-challenging projects (like hats) were boring, but I didn’t have enough time or energy to take on big, challenging projects (like socks or sweaters). I’ve recently taken it up again, even though it makes little sense to take up knitting when it is 37 degrees out (with humidity), because I crave that kind of tangible creative activity. I’m not doing anything terribly challenging, but trying out a newish technique that allows me to experiment with colour combination: http://bit.ly/cvVraj/. It’s satisfying in a small and unexpected but somehow significant way.

    Also, I love this post to death and it makes me miss you a lot.

    • That looks like fun! Learning new knitting techniquesis the best: the moment when it clicks is so satisfying.

      I miss you too. If we were in the same city we could have humid summer knitting meetups where iced drinks could be consumed and not much of substance could be accomplished.

  3. […] grass. I’ve felt the knitting itch a few times in the last week or so, since I posted about still needing knitting, but I didn’t act on it until last […]
