Snowy Day Knitting

Does anyone else have that knitted project that has been hiding in the closet for years? I started the Zuma Tunic by Wendy Bernard in 2012. Yes that is embarrassing to admit, I looked it up in my Ravelry list. Egads!

Yep, Jodi’s not feeling it either.

I’ve actually packed this up and taken it on 4 different trips to start on again. It takes me a while to count & figure out what I’m doing and then get started. I’m not sure on the yarn, pooling? (some of my own hand dyed), do I have enough to finish? . Undecided about how deep the V is in the front of the pattern. Rip it and find another pattern/yarn? So I usually set all of these thoughts aside and start knitting for a couple of inches & then toss it back into the bag and  repeat the next trip.

Well cut to present day, #1 I’m on a quest to finish all of my projects “on the needles”, #2. Weather, we just had an ice/snow storm and it is suppose to snow again tomorrow. OK, I decide to get that sweater out and dive in.

Where I started, and after day one of knitting. Update tomorrow!

Now that I’m committed to finish it. Of course I’m thinking of #1 making the sleeves traditional,  #2 Filling the V neck in a bit with a k1pl ribbing,  #3 Adding a hood

OK, now that I read the above 1 and 2 will just make it into a traditional sweater & isn’t that what drew me to the pattern to begin with? The sleeves/front tie? I think I should keep to the pattern, but maybe add the hood?

More later……Happy Knitting….May your needles fly as fast as Dragonflies..
