Just when I was about to start Miette by Andi Satterlund, she sends a request for test knitters. I know I’m busy with too many projects right now, but I desperately need to knit. Sewing is fun and it’s amazing how nice things can be made in no time, but I haven’t knitted regularly in the last couple of months and my body and mind are asking for it. Knitting is relaxing, it takes time, it helps your mind wander and forget the hurry, the problems, it slows you down. And as I need to slow down, I decide to partake in a test knit. It sounds like a paradox, but it will be the right way to kick my ass and finally cast on. The wool for this project will arrive next week, just in time for our weekend trip to Valencia. Some quality knitting time in the train sounds like a treat.
I can’t say a lot about this project, just that it’s a beautiful retro cardigan like the ones Andi designs. After it I still want to knit Miette. I feel the need of knitting feminine cardigans to go with my dresses and skirts. Summer starts today, and summer knitting starts now! And to celebrate it, Andi is offering today her patterns with a 50% discount.
