FO: Erasmus

I think I’m spotting a trend here. In ‘real life’ I’m really neither a ‘morning person’ or ‘night owl’. It doesn’t really matter at what time I wake up, as long as I have some time to wake up slowly while sipping my coffee and petting my cat. I guess the same is true for my blogging and the new year. While some people don’t like mondays, I for some reason don’t appear to like January’s.

I’ve been meaning to post Erasmus for a while now, but unfortunately ‘life’ has gotten in the way. My apparent acrimony toward the first month of the year didn’t help of course.

As I already mentioned here, when I knit the first pair I never intended to do ‘anything’ with them. I merely knit them to practice stranded knitting and to use up my stash. I changed my mind after seeing how much ‘wear-time’ they got and how comfortable I found them. They don’t sag.

I’m very picky when it comes to ‘the fit’ and I find most armwarmers either scratchy or terribly annoying because of the constant sagging. Many armwarmers are made of stretchy fabric/ stitches and have the tendency to stretch out while wearing them. While at first they may be snug and comfortable, after the third day of wear they feel loose and saggy. I use armwarmers like I use hats. I tend not to wash them every week….

The lack of posts in January were also due to some exciting new changes in my ‘real life’ at the moment. I’m not saying what it is just yet, but I’m working on something that takes up a lot of my spare time right now. I’m hoping to find some time and upload the patterns for Altocumulus and Erasmus (also free duh) somewhere this week.
