Yesterday was the first day of Autumn!

in Basic Chic Hoodie, Cable Down Raglan, Knit and Tonic - Something Red, Wendy Bernard

So, I ripped out the CDR to nothingness. I was so disgusted with myself that I did not cast back on for it. I’ll get to it…instead, I cast on for the Basic Chic Hoodie. It was calling to me! I’m going to do the lace version with this yarn and if I like the way it looks, there will be more of them in my future. This is how far I got on the train ride into the city this morning — I’m all the way to the lace panels and have Somethingblack2
gotten all the neck shaping done. That’s pretty far, I think.

On the train ride home, I worked on Something Black and got the sleeves onto waste yarn. I’m flying along on this one. I think an inch or so more and I’ll be moving onto the ribbing. I’m loving this having multiple things going and actually getting somewhere with them. I’ll go back to CDR soon, but I’m afraid that my anger at myself will blind me and help me to make more mistakes.

Isn’t it fun having multiple projects going on at once? For me, it keeps me motivated as I’m always feeling like working on one of them, at least.
Sorry about CDR. I ripped my first one too (mostly because I didn’t like the Pima Silk I used the first time, but also because of the errata issues) and it took me a few months before I re-attempted. But it ultimately worked out great!
You got really far on the new project! That train time is really working for you.
