Seaming

I am not great at seaming, mainly because I am too impatient to baste or occasionally even pin. Things get lined up by chance and some effort in that general direction. But they’re not overly lumpy or anything like that. I don’t mind doing it, though, unlike the majority of the knitting universe. As a matter of fact, I like it. It’s kind of magical, drawing yarn together and coming out with a finished garment.

Just saying.

Summer Knitting?

A lot of people, Stash and Burn in particular, have been talking about ‘summer knitting’. Word about not wanting to have hot sweaters on laps, and cotton have been mentioned. And I sit here seaming a cardigan.

Summer is an entirely different beast, I think, for me than it is for other people. Being a student, I don’t have as much time to knit in the school year, so summer is for big projects. Like afghans. And sweaters. Destashing has happened, as well, which also controlled what I knit. Two balls of sock yarn are ready to be packed for London, and there I will buy yarn. For hats. Not for summer, whose colors in fabric I don’t really like, but in preparation for autumn, which I prefer anyway.
