I really dragged my feet finishing it the cardi, mainly because weaving in ends isn't really the most exciting part of finishing a sweater.
Tell me, is there any way to sew on 9 buttons without having to weave in two ends per button? I figure if they were closer together I could have just used a single piece of yarn, but they're about 1.5" apart so I did them individually.
Anyway my new theme is "onward". I love the satisfaction of finishing a project and having that great feeling of "I can knit anything now". I do have one project I need to keep working on but I think I'll be able to finish that on the side of something more entertaining.
Also, either tomorrow or Saturday (depending on how it works out) I will be going to Detta's Spindle to try out spinning wheels. I'm so excited; I'll let you know what happens!
Or 2. Misti Alpaca Lace in "Merlot"
The fingering weight will make for a thicker cardi, but the the color will be more appropriate. The laceweight will make for a lighter cardi, but the color doesn't really scream "July".
