I’m having trouble coming up with new and exciting titles for my blog posts.
Since the blog is about knitting, it’s hard to have original, witty titles every week. Maybe I’m just a little boring, but maybe there’s just not enough interesting twists on knitting and purling.
Anyway, I’ve been desperately searching for a summer sweater to knit and I’ve found that not enough patterns exist for busty gals. Add to that the fact that I’m a little chunky (well, maybe a lot chunky), and it’s hard to find something that will fit well.
I’ve been looking at Custom Fit or Big Girl Knits, but I don’t like the styles. I like something with sleeves and more fitted but not too fitted. So, I’m leaning toward designing something of my own. I have all the Elizabeth Zimmerman books anyone could need, but I need to find some time to sit down and actually read.
Craftsy also has a class – Curvy Knits – but I’m not sure I’m that committed to spend $40 USD to build a duct tape bust of myself.
Oh, well, sometimes it takes a little bit of time and effort to create. I’m just a little bit a lazy knitter, I like the patterns and THE MATH figured out for me by someone else.
So, back to afghan knitting for now. I’m still moseying along with the Rowan KAL – and I’m just about finished with week four’s design – Lace Kisses:
It’s nice to have a long weekend to knit, as I’m trying to catch up…two more patterns and I’m up to date as of next Monday. My husband has been hounding me for a summer bedspread and I’m trying to knit quickly so I don’t have to fork out more dough for a summer spread. I figure the money I could save on the bedspread could be spent on more yarn.
So, essentially it’s a selfish act to knit.
