Finally, it took me long enough, the pattern of "I'll Remember April" is available now.
The test knit was actually done months ago, thank you Tatjana and My Anh. But I kept sneaking in new patterns (i.e. Ginkgo Collection) in front of the queue for tech editing.
It's funny since it had been a while I last worked with it, I'd nearly forgotten about this pattern.
Now a pattern is up, I got something going on my needles as well.
I decided to re-knit my Inishmore, the one I knitted and completed nearly 20 years ago, and unraveled it last year due to its huge size.
I'm reknitting it with proper gauge by moving down 1 needle size, and this time size small. It will still be big for me, but I think I want a fashionably over-sized sweater (as oppose to simply way too large to be worn.)
Knitting this definitely made me remember my respect for Alice Starmore as a designer. It has a fairly complex stitch design that I was feeling a bit overwhelmed after the ribbing. However, 6 rows into stitch pattern, the sequence became intuitive. It's still by no means easy, mindless knitting, but I am enjoying it.
It's fairly slow going. I have a feeling I may start another project on the side to break the rhythm a bit. I'm not one that has many projects going at the same time because I feel like I can loose track of what I'm doing too easily. I also dislike picking up an project and spending 3-5 minutes trying to figure out where I was. But somehow the slowness of it makes me want to do something else.
