Neverending Knitting

In the past few years I've been using Instagram to document my creating however with all the changes since Facebook took over I enjoy using it less and less. It's making me consider posting on my blog again. I stopped because finding the time to write posts was proving difficult and a post to Instagram was much easier. I'm still not sure if regular blogging will happen but I think I'll give it a chance.

I've got what feels like too many projects on the go at the moment. My main knitting project is my Sammal Cardigan by Joji Locatelli and I'm very happy with the way it's going but it's a massively slow knit. It's fingering weight yarn and the sand stitch pattern makes for very slow going. I've stopped knitting the body to get the sleeves done because I thought that would help psychologically. Once I go back to doing the body and cast that off it will be all finished. I won't need to then knit the sleeves. I'm looking forward to getting it finished as it's been on the needles for months. It had a big hibernation in the middle because it was such slow going. I'm just trying to do the final push and get it done. I've got a long queue of cardigans and jumpers I want to make right now so I'm ready to get onto the next thing.

I've also got several small things on the go. A hat, some mittens, lots of socks and it just feels like it's too much. I'm trying to get some of the smaller things done so I have fewer WIPs and can focus a bit more. Plus it feels like maybe spring is finally here and I'm less inclined to work on hats and mittens once it gets warmer.
