September. Adiós.

Adiós is the monthly series of crafty notes and captures of this beautiful world.

The end of a very productive month… I feel like September not just flew by, but never even happened… I keep wondering at the new world around me noticing things that are abundant and became quiet boring to those who live here, but look magical to me.

September Knitting Notes

I am pretty modest this month with just two WIPs going on, both of them are so close to FOs – Flax and Soft and Grey. Which means soon I will get back to my stash, take out something precious and be all excited about a new project – never ending cycle 🙂 I hope it will never stop!

Technique of the month

Are you up for some heavy duty technical article? 🙂 If you love modifications, these two articles are a must-read – First Amendments: altering length in a knitting pattern – Part I, Part II

Jenna Wilson breaks down the modification process in clear and logical steps. Even if you don’t do any modifications to the patterns, it’s still worth reading to be more aware of the construction and logic behind a knitted piece.

I hope you had a lovely September!

October, welcome!

    This whole year seems to have flown by too quickly.
    Yes, the never ending cycle of a knitter’s life, so wonderful.

    I love that never-ending cycle too! There’s always new projects to dream about. Your two current wips are progressing nicely so I am sure that you will be casting on for some fun October projects soon.

    I know what you mean about the month just disappearing, the same happened here. But it was such a difficult month for us that I am celebrating reaching October relativel unscathed by buying yarn and casting on lots of things!
