Anoyone who’s been reading this blog lately must realize that:
- I’ve been really busy
- I’ve been desperately searching for knitting inspiration
While I still haven’t cured my lack of free time, I may have found inspiration.

I started a sleeve last night. The yarn, you ask?
It’s Aunt Lydia’s Fashion Crochet Thread. Nothin but the best for my Martha!
Honestly though, it’s really nice! Take a look at its stitch definition. It’s mercerized, slips wonderfully on the Addi’s, and got perfect gauge! I bought it in a desperate attempt to find something summer-weight in the pink I liked. I tried buying the 4ply used in the sample but the pink is nowhere to be found (at least, without waiting for mailorder, and when you gotta start a project you gotta start a project, ya know?)
So I sat down last night at 9:45, cast on, and got through a full repeat on a sleeve. It started out with a few rows of garter so I used the knitted on cast on. It’s my favorite cast on for garter stitch. If you look at the closeup you’ll see it makes that pretty scalloped edge.
Finally, something I can’t wait to get home to knit!
