Last Friday marked the one-week mark to my return to school. I decided to begin my preparations for the return to school the way any good teacher who knits (and now crochets) would do, I bought a lot of yarn. The beginning of school, especially at a boarding school, is really busy and I knew that I would not have a lot of time to find new patterns once I finish my current project and even less time to drive to the yarn store and buy yarn. So I went on a back to school shopping spree, except instead of buying clothes, I bought yarn. A couple of the items will become clothes, so its kind of the same thing. I’m so excited about the new projects, it’s a little hard to keep working on my current project before starting on something new.
I did get started on a new crochet project, to ensure that I don’t forget what I learned in class. I decided to go with the placemats I showed in a prevoius post.
Then I also bought yarn to make a few more potholders using patterns from the book 200 Crochet Blocks.
This week I’ll probably get started on this cowl because it’s a nice small project that I could easily take to back to school meetings.
The moment I saw this cardigan I was excited about it. The best part is the back. I really want to start it yesterday, but I have another sweater project I really should finish first.
