It’s the end of August, which means it is nearly autumn (or fall, depending on where you live). While it is still to warm to be dressing in thick, cosy knits, it certainly is not too early to begin knitting them. Knitting is a slow process and the finished garments are all the more special because of it. Currently I am working on a grey and green cardigan with a wrap front in a aran yarn. I actually started it a few years ago but never got around to finishing it.
After I’m done with this one – just a sleeve and a half left – I’ve already got plans to start on project for my boyfriend, a mid green men’s cardigan with a lovely set of dark wooden buttons.
I love the slow sense of repetitive motion that you get from knitting as well as the accomplishment from finishing something that has taken so much work and dedication.
