September Project(s)

Not even having started my August project (tomorrow!...or is it "manana"?) I have already planned out my September project.

Knitting Related

I have been meaning for months to do an art piece combining knitting and mosaic (as in stained glass/tile). I have done both separately for years. I have the knitted piece I want to use:

partially done

(this was an aborted project for a much larger blanket... (see Tilting at Windmills, a free pattern at Woolly Thoughts - great project if you don't detest sewing together all those squares. I do.)
and I have a canvas.

So - now just to come up with the pattern idea! Wish me luck.

Non-knitting related

I intend to cut back on smoking. Despite all of the knitting and the office job, I still manage to suck back 40-45 a day of cigarettes (strong ones at that). I plan for September to smoke no more than one large pack (25) a day.

I'm excited to see your project when it's finished.

Good luck on cutting back on smoking. My dad recently quit a couple of months ago, after like 30 years of 2 packs a day.

Wow-- ambitious!! I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Actually, I think upon second thought I will leave the knitting/mosaic combo as my October project as there are some good sales coming up here in October where I might find some vintage stuff to put in the mosaic.

September project will be...hmm... learning how to knit cables without a cable needle. Have always wanted to figure this out and I have two patterns to practice on: the Morrigan and a far simpler one - a cable-fronted sweater from the Twilley Denim Freedom pattern book. So, I will undertake to finish the Twilley pattern using no cable needle by the end of September ;-)
