Addictive to knit

I am pretty sure the pattern for my shawl-in-progress – Vacillate – is addictive. I’ve called it M&M knitting, I really like, it even though the two latest contrasting colors don’t pop as much as the previous ones, and it’s growing so fast! I know, I cast on September 1 and today is September 18 and this isn’t much for 18 days of knitting but remember I also have finished that eternal hood, I have kept up to speed with my MKAL socks and I’ve started a pair of wrist warmers. All in all, this project is growing and it’s growing quickly.

I’m almost finished with the fifth out of eight repeats and I can’t wait to get on with the next repeat, and the next, and… Not only that, I’m already planning my second Vacillate. It turns out not the knitting itself is M&M knitting but the pattern too!  If anyone of my readers is interested in one, please let me know, I will be glad to knit you one. My only conditions are that you pick your colors from the Vacillate yarn kits here (look at the two last pictures), that you agree to one main color and nine contrasting colors, that you don’t pick a kit that I’ve already knit and that I have the right to change my mind if I happen to feel like I should move on (it’s unlikely but one can never be too careful).

I wouldn’t be surprised if this is finished by the end of the week. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to knit, just a few more rounds.
