rocky coast update

I may have overestimated my ability to finish a cabled, worsted weight wool sweater in the heat of August. Some days it's hard to muster any enthusiasm, and the cardigan sits alone in a heap in my stuffy upstairs living room. I am still chugging away most days and am nearly finished with the first sleeve. That's progress! I think my knitting group is tired of hearing me complain about how much I dislike knitting sleeves, so I'll keep the whining to a minimum here. Just know that I am having no fun at all knitting these sleeves. Ha. Well, it's not so bad actually. K and I have been hanging out and watching movies together, which makes for good knitting time.

I haven't spent all my days knitting. My mom, sister, and I went to the Kentucky State Fair over the weekend. We watched spinning demonstrations, looked at all the knitted and crocheted entries, strolled through the layer cakes, watched a circus show, and finally took in the colors and crowds of the midway.

I'd love to hear what you've been doing! 

What projects are you making? What sights have you seen?



  1. Your sweater is coming along beautifully. The fair sounds like fun. :-)

  2. ♥ Great progress on your sweater!!! Oh, that picture of the ferris wheel is beautiful....I love all the colours!

  3. Your sweater is looking beautiful!

  4. Your Rocky Coast Sweater is looking great! Hang on! I'm knitting a secret gift (I'm not going to finish on time...) and a pair of socks! Life is good! ;-)

  5. The progress on your cardi is great! I can't believe you are able to muster up any knitting with worsted. Big pat on the back to you!

  6. It's looking beautiful! Best of luck finishing it up.

    (And I'm blaming you for the pile of Lark sitting in my knitting basket now and the fact that Coastal Knits is in the USPS system on it's way to me. ;) I'm so super excited to cast on!)
