I feel like my life kind of went crazy for awhile, but it is calming down. I have been knitting but somehow not being as prolific as I would prefer. My office went through a huge move. And then I took some random furniture home from work so I have been rearranging my apartment and stash instead of actually knitting.
I finished this one a little bit ago.

Pattern: On the Road Again by Joji Locatelli
Yarn: Malabrigo Rios in Piedras, a little more than 5 skeins.
Needles: 3.5mm and 5.0mm
Start Date: August 18, 2014
Finish Date: September 17, 2014
It has a detachable cowl, but I didn’t manage to get any pictures without the cowl. And I really only got a few photos. I wanted to get more taken at a later date, but never got the chance. I alternated skeins throughout the whole thing. The length feels more like tunic length, though it seems to look shorter in the photos. I don’t think I made any alterations to the pattern at all!
I worried about how variegated the yarn was, but I think I like it anyway. The fabric takes on a different appearance in all environments.
A month ago I went up to visit my family, and my Mom and I went to the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival. We didn’t take any classes this time, just shopped. I bought a few items, but was pretty restrained. We also visited with the sheep and angora bunnies.
It was a nice weekend home. I also went because my high school volleyball team was being honored by our town’s sports hall of fame. I had kind of dreaded it because of all my anxiety about high school. But it ended up just being a really pleasant time seeing my old teammates. Kind of a mini reunion.
Well, that was my little toe-dip back into blogging. I’ve got more to show you! In fact I need to take some FO photos this afternoon!
