Mid May Report
I finished my Featherweight Sweater and it was a fast knit! I may make another light sweater out of lace weight in the future, or convert a similar pattern to sock yarn. Now back to my Cassidy sweater which keeps getting shelved. I need to figure out the front neck w/o the hood, so I'm doing the back before the other front (two sleeves are already done). Getting distracted and a bit bored, so now I have nothing else on the needles so that I can get a bit more done on it. The cabling and shaping is just complicated enough that I need to pay attention, but not enough to really drive me forward like other projects can. Periodic breaks seem to be a good approach for this one, which is sort of how I did the Lace Henley in February/March.
