So maybe I’m going through another “I must finish all the WiPs NOW” nesting phase, maybe it’s because of Glenna C.’s post about getting out of a knitting slump, or maybe it’s a spring thaw causing things to come out of hibernation, but any way you look at it, I have mysteriously had the incredible insistence that I start working again on my Floral Jumper (or as I dubbed it, Party Like It’s 1949).
I started this over a year ago and ended up putting it down pretty much when we moved back to Ontario. It wasn’t a good travel project and needs a fair bit of concentration since the flowers are done in a weird intarsia/stranded method; then when I got pregnant, the thought of finishing all that work and not having it fit made me a bit sad, so I put it away to hibernate…
Until earlier this week when it’s siren call came wafting across the basement and I just couldn’t say no (although I have to admit that first I had to squish down the voice in my head that wanted to rip the entire thing back and make something else out of it…it was one of my more insane moments). And somehow I’ve managed to finish the first band of flowers on the second repeat and have high hopes to get that full second repeat done, dare I say, today?!
Wish me luck!
