… sorry about that! The longer it’s been, the longer it’s taken to come back.
Here’s a bit of a photo documentary of my last month:
Craft Sessions happened and it was ace! The whole weekend was so beautifully organised by Felicia.
I left more inspired than I have been in, in such a long time. It took a few days for it to get to a manageable level! I think it was largely due to the class I took with Anna Maltz (a.k.a. Sweaterspotter). It was a Top-Down Improvised Colourwork sweater class.
She loves colour, like I love colour.
But generally speaking it was just crazy exciting to be there.
I fan-girled a-lot!
So excited, so much so, it was hard to calm down enough to get some sleep on my arrival home… luckily I had Monday off too. I spent the evening planning the rest of my yoked sweater… until the wee hours of the morning Zzzzzz…
The weekend after Craft Sessions, I took Anna Maltz’s ‘Marisle’ class in Melbourne. I love this technique. It’s a combination of Intarsia and Fairisle, and it’s super clever.
I had spent the week feverishly knitting on my yoked sweater from The Craft Sessions, so I took it along to show Anna my progress that day.
Then this happened…
Anna popped a photo of me with my yoke progress on her Instagram feed, and I became Instafamous! At last sight there were over 1,000 likes to this photo! Richmond knitters also got a bunch of new followers, which is wonderful!
I continued my yoke at home… but I’m sad to say I’m taking a break for the moment. I feel like I may have increased my stitch count too far. I’m just taking a breather to gather up the courage to do what needs to be done, we all know what that is.
Last month, I also went to see the ‘Yarn’ documentary organised by ‘What Jane Knits’, along with a few friends and a whole cinema of yarn-aholics.
We celebrated my mum’s 70th birthday.
We celebrated a 1st birthday and a Christening.
And I’m back to knitting my Aislinn cardigan. Sweet, predictable, pattern cardigan, what can go wrong?
