Making progress…

I hope your Easter weekend was wonderful! It was super relaxing here – besides a last minute decision to clean the carpets! But its done now and we had a lovely clean house for Easter, which is always nice. The kids played outside a ton and we all indulged in lots of sugar and gluten and buttery treats 🙂

I was able to work a little more on my Say Anything cardigan. The sleeve is getting there, but I definitely need to be more consistent on working on it. Can I be honest for a minute? I cast on using my “normal” body measurements at the end of my pregnancy, and right now, my postpartum body is a good deal larger than what it is normally. So the sweater doesn’t look really flattering when I try it on, and it really doesn’t fit the way I wanted it to. So I just don’t have the motivation to finish it other than not having a WIP that’s 95% done. Ah, such is life and perhaps I should just stick with socks or shawls for the time being 🙂

Reading: Still working on The Child Whisperer, about half way through, and enjoying it.

Shop update: I added quite a few new colorways to the shop last week, and they are getting swooped up! This Friday I plan on a shop update with lots of new project bags and hopefully some restocks and new colorways, too.

I hope your week is wonderful!

Linking with Nicole and Ginny.

  1. Don’t fret, finish the cardi, block it, dress as you would when you are going to wear it and then make a decision. I was sure I would hate the last two sweaters, but once I got them ready to wear I changed my mind. Love the color!

  2. I have two words for the cardigan:
    1. Gorgeous
    2. Blocking

    It is beautiful and don’t stress about it fitting so much – remember that a nice soaking and blocking can do wonders for handknits!

    Hopefully that is the motivation you need to get it finished!

  3. It is a gorgeous cardigan – you can always finish it and pop it away until it fits again – I have the same conundrum after three babies in fairly quick succession have left me a lot heavier than I ought to be. I’m mostly knitting for the children instead at the moment; I’ll get back to me later!
