Knitting Flow

We Are Knitters. Pima Cotton Sweater.

Happy Wednesday! Just a quick work-in-progress update. Between never ending to-do lists, day job and last preparations for Moeke 2017 collection release (so, so looking forward to it), I try to devote at least 30 Β min a day to a simple, mindless and so delicious to the touch pima cotton sweater that’s been growing slow, but steady on my needles.

I am not sure what will come of it, as I am basically changing everything on the go, including the stitch pattern; but sometimes it feels so nice not to know and not to plan what iit should become in the end.Β Just enjoying this quiet knitting flow is enough for now. After this quiet hectic summer, this is exactly what I need right now.

I hope you also have something soothing and mindless on the needles that helps you to switch off your head and catch this knitting zen flow πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful day!

  1. I have a friend who changes patterns on the fly and it always works out for her. Me….I follow as close as possible unless it is a lengthening issue or a different edging or collar.

    • I do love planning, but sometimes it’s so nice to have a project that you allow yourself just flow πŸ™‚ We’ll see what will come out of it πŸ™‚

  2. I can really empathise with this feeling! This is exactly why I always have socks on my needles, it gives me some daily, relaxing (and often mindless) knitting.

  3. The idea of making things up as you go along on a sweater spikes my anxiety but I’m glad you’re enjoying your project. I feel a little more confident changing things on socks because they are so much smaller!

  4. Usually that’s socks, but I don’t have any on my needles right now, so it’s a cowl that I pretty much have memorized.
    This is such a beautiful sweater – the color and texture is divine and I can only imagine knitting with that yarn is a dream!

  5. You are
    Brilliant! As always, your knitting is gorgeous. I am
    More of a
    Planner than a wing it knitter. Otherwise I mess
    Up too much. Xoxo

  6. Alina, I have been working on a “mindless” stockinette portion of a sweater this week as well and I am loving the rhythm and relaxation of it all–sometimes, it’s the perfect knit.Wishing you a happy, and crafty September!

  7. I love a good mindless knit, and those simple knits are often so easy to wear when they are done, too! lad you are taking time for yourself amidst so many projects.
