On the LK-150

Well I've started another project, not like there isn't enough unfinished projects I should be finishing! Next Saturday I will be teaching an intro to Garment Designer class at Newton's Spring Fling, and I only thought it fitting that I should be wearing something I knit.

It's not going to be cold enough for scarves, and the last skirt that I knit is very brown, wintery colors. So I've decided to knit another skirt. I figure that will knit up the fastest and have more of likelihood of being finished.

So I've knit a swatch for my gauge, going to punch in the gauge into Garment Designer and figure out the skirt design, print myself out some directions and hopefully start knitting tomorrow. A nice relaxing activity for an Easter Sunday.

Wow I wish I knew how to knit or sew or something! Hopefully this summer I'll get some practice time in. I love your pictures at the top of your blog, by the way. They're beautiful!!

Wow, I am totally impressed...I've been lucky to knit a scarf (but at least I have done it). And then there's the wearing of said garment...not even going to be wearing a KNIT skirt. Maybe if I lose that extra 50 lbs...argh!! But I bet it will be BEAUTIFUL on you. Can't wait to see it.

@Patricia Knitting takes time, that valuable resource we always prioritize with other things, but knitting and sewing for that matter bring me back to focus, so somedays I just have to stay out of my office and do some manual labor. I will definitely do a blog post when I finish the skirt. I got sick and wasn't able to finish it for the knitting conference.

@Marlee - Practice is a good thing. I hope you are able to do it.
