Dare I say such a thing? I am incredibly happy that this is almost done – especially considering the birthday party this will be going to is in just a few short days. It has been really fun knitting this, and honestly, it isn’t a hard knit.
Last week after I posted my seriously sad amount of knitting progress I decided to sit down and spend some dedicated time knitting. I don’t typically do that. Usually I try to knit a few rows here and there, my attention always elsewhere. But, I figured that it was ok for me to sit down for a couple hours and just knit, so that is what I did.
With all of the extended knitting, there has been a lot less reading. I am still reading 1984. I am starting to realize that reading this book on my Nexus before bed is probably not a smart choice. It is enjoyable though, just a little concerning considering all of the news recently. I need to look for something light hearted and easy. I have a few books that I received recently, so I will have to take a look at them and see if they fit the bill.
I’m not sure what I am going to knit next. I have a shawl that I have been working on for a while, but it was put down in order to get this tank top finished, so maybe I will go back to that. There are a lot of beautiful shawl patterns out there that I have been eyeing lately…maybe I will have to take extended knitting breaks during the day more frequently!
