I’ve resigned myself to the fact that although my Perianth cardigan “fits,” it doesn’t really fit me. And by that I mean that I can get it without any problems, but it will never ever button comfortably. And that’s fine, too, just wearing it as an open-front cardigan. But there’s part of my brain that is hung up on the fact that it is wrong. That, on top of the fact that I kind of hate making sleeves, has stalled Perianth for now. I plan on making another one for myself and gifting this one to my sister who (if you can believe it) is even tinier than I am.
In the mean time, I’m using the left over MadTosh from Perianth to work on a different project and get some of my mojo back. I cast on Crew
last weekend and have been working up the stripey front. Because I’m using fingering weight yarn, I went up one size on the pattern to compensate. The purple and white stripes will be complimented by a charcoal grey back with some more MadTosh I bought on sale for Black Friday.
As far as reading goes, very little has been done recently because of travel and holiday business. I’m still making my way through Going Bovine by Libba Bray and I’m liking it. Hopefully once things get less busy and I’m on holiday break, I’ll have more time to dedicate to some fun-time reading.
Linking up with KCCO and yarn along.
