I’ve been a flitty knitter lately. That is I flit from project to project. That’s a nice way of putting it. I could say that I am lacking the “stick-with-its”. Or I could argue back that I’m knitting and it’s my beloved hobby so I should knit whatever the heck I want.
I do have these arguments with myself.
I also had some Page Wood Farms Denali yarn which needed to be used up. I decided to knit another Perseverance Shawl. I made one last summer before we left Arkadelphia.
It’s a great pattern to stick in my purse and to pull out whenever I get the chance to knit on it. I wore the finished one a lot this past winter. Those shawlettes are great to wrap around your neck and are nice and warm.
And finally. Here’s where I need the Perseverance. I’ve been working on these diligently for the last 4 evenings. Here’s how far I am.
Not very far. But they are fun to knit. Besides that I need the practice with the 2 circular needles. I don’t have problems with “ladders” when I knit on dpns, but I have got some ladder problems with these circulars. So I am working on giving firm tugs between needles and trying to figure out how to eliminate those ladders. Part of the problem is that the first stitch is often a purl and to me that makes it harder to avoid the ladder thing.
But these are wonderful socks and a joy to knit.
(That may be stretching things just a tad. I do really like them but more importantly I decided that I was not going to whine about how freaking slow they are.)
