Back from a Detour

If there’s such a thing as a Contemplation-in-Progress project, then that’s what I’m working on. And sporadically at that. I actually haven’t knit or done any kind of yarn related work at all for more than 2 weeks now. I’ve been doing some programming for myself, and it was going so great that I didn’t feel the need to work on my other crafts. ๐Ÿ™‚ And now that my programming work is done, and I’ve created a few “great things” ๐Ÿ˜‰ , the crafty calling is back.

And now I’m picking up from my last post, where I signed off wondering what I should make next. I’ve taken a tiny step forward in the contemplation process – I’m making a poncho. (I think.) I still haven’t found a project yet, though, so I hope I figure it out soon.

It’s funny how my pastimey detour affected my book devouring too – I usually listen to books or podcasts while I work on crafty stuff, but since I can’t really concentrate on a book while I program, last month was the least reading that I did this year! But on the plus side, whatever little I read, I ended up reading with my eyes, not ears – and I’m glad my reading speed hasn’t reduced much.

  1. I don’t know how “poncho” you want to go, but there is a thing called a “swancho” — sweater + poncho, and there are some lovely patterns for same out there. One of those might be something to think about if your climate is on the cool side.

    1. Indeed, I’ve been running into swanchos as well in my search for patterns. They seem interesting, at least in terms of a novel project to try out! ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Poncho knitting is relaxing and enjoyable, Anita. I have knitted simple one with little design on the edge about two years ago, very useful especially in the chilly morning and evening.
