On epic projects…

I had this crazy idea a few weeks ago.  That since I’d finished an epic sweater project last semester, I could finish an epic sweater project this semester.  Because my unpaid intership, job, classes and job search weren’t enough.Anyway, over Thanksgiving break, I bought the yarn and then on the eve of the new year, I cast on for the epic project.  The sweater in question?  Venezia.IMG_4795.JPGCertainly a much easier project than the one I knit last semester right?  Haha.  I kid.I haven’t worked on it for like a month… but I did about 8 rounds last night and I think I can commit to doing a little bit each day.  Want to see the progress?IMG_5128.JPGIsn’t sooooo pretty that you want to eat it up?  I know.  Me too.  Last semester, I spoke of the sweater as a hot affair.  Venezia doesn’t lend itself to such wanton adjectives.No.  Venezia is a state of mind.  It’s my escape.  My daily vacation… away from my frustrating students and …. everything.  It’s the land far far away where it’s just me, some wool and a pattern that requires me to look at the chart every 8 stitches or so.  Grrr.

It’s so beautiful! I know it’ll take awhile, but that’s good from our perspective since we’ll get to see it a lot ;)

There’s something to be said for a project that removes you and your brain entirely from the world around you.

Sigh. That’s so pretty. If I hadn’t seen it in person, I’d swear you photoshopped it into existence or something.
