Hibernating - I have a circular lace shawl in time out. I’ve been really good lately about not outright abandoning projects, but the endless lace (and 500+ stitches around) has me going cross eyed. Part of it is how much I am not looking forward to blocking it- I am pretty sure I will run out of blocking wires. (but maybe this is just a good excuse to get a second set!)

Edges - I love simple but interesting edges. Tiny picot bind offs on shawl edges, a tubular cast on (pain that they are!) to start a hat. One of the longest parts of blocking shawls for me is that I go through every single garter stitch ridge on the top (and down the sides if it is a straight edge) with a blocking wire to help make sure I get super straight edges.

Can you tell if you haven’t been knitting for a few days? Or if you have been knitting on a big project, big needles, or a stiff yarn? I try and never go more than a day or two without knitting since my hands start to get stiff. If I am working on a project using a stiff or really bulky yarn I make sure to take frequent breaks and alternate is with something else (usually, no surprise, a simple hat!).

Just one more row. Pretty much always my refrain during lunchtime knitting! Do you have a favorite type of project that always lives in your bag?

The countdown to moving back to Seattle has begun!

In the meantime, finishing off hats to donate is more fun than packing.
