Flax Light by Tin Can Knits is complete! I cast-on for it on 2/11 and finished it on 3/11. I'm not quite happy with how I cast it off the body, but I'm not upset enough to undo it and start over. I wore it on Sunday without blocking it, since I was so desperate to wear it. It's comfortable and I'm happy with the size ML+ a few stitches on the sleeves. If I make it again, I think I will do reverse stockinette instead of garter stitch on the sleeves. That was a struggle I did not enjoy. I did entirely too much tinking and reknitting when I found that I'd autopiloted thru those sections and did the wrong stitch. It was a great pattern, well written, and good for beginners as well as experienced knitters looking for a good, classic garment. I knit it with 6 balls of Knitpicks Stroll Tweed in the color North Pole Heather.
The leftovers from this pair will probably join the leftovers from my sweater to become another pair of socks with contrasting toes & heels. At least that's the plan. I have so many things to work on, I have no idea when those will be done. I need to get back to my Craft Yarn Council Crochet Instructor's Certification work as soon as these socks are done - hopefully this week. I'm down to 6 weeks to complete the program. Time to hurry. I am finding that monogamously working on one project at a time is very rewarding. I don't forget where I am like I did with the socks when I'm only working on one project at a time. And the urge to start something new makes me work faster to complete what I'm on so I can get there.
