Next On the List
Enough of those UFO's, here are my WIP's! Still plugging away at Hotty Hubby's scarf. He claims he'll wear this one since the colors are so cool. With the temperature staying the way it is, he may not need this scarf until next winter. However, I keep knitting. (Yarn is Brook's Farm.)
I am determined to participate in the Red Scarf Project. With the deadline creeping up and my distaste actually, for knitting scarves, I figured that if I started my scarf on Jan 1 and knit at least 3 inches a day, not only would I have a plenty long scarf ready to be mailed by Jan 22, I could set it aside everyday without guilt and work on something else. It's working out great! 3 inches is very easy to accomplish and then I set it aside and work on something else. Like the other scarf above. Ack. (Yarn is Lorna's Laces superwash.)
This I am not actually working on at all right now, but I have every intention of finishing. It's Brooke's Column of Leaves scarf made with Brook's Farm yarn. And yes, it's for ME!
And a little something to break up the scarf monotony are some little socks for my kiddo. The yarn is Brooklyn Handspun in the Mocha Rose colorway. I really want to make a pair for myself, but I have to finish those scarves, first. But little bitty socks? No problem.
So once these deadlines are met, I am full force KNIT FOR BABY mode. I am ready to cast on for the Oat Couture Curlicue Coverlet. This is my third attempt at using yarn I like, finally settling for a tried and true. Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in Dusty Sage.
Thank you all for your comments! Mary - your question from long ago has haunted me. What am I knitting for myself? Well I am working on that. And yes, it has been one heck of a good year. A little crazy, but all good.
A shout out to Minty whom I met this past week. Turns out we are neighbors! (seriously, 2 blocks!) I love finding out that my fellow knitters live in the neighborhood.
Bless you MLE, for reminding us all that life is indeed too short for bad knits!
