I have been busy with my knitting recently. I still am waiting to block the Cinnamon Wave Wrap, but aside from that, it is DONE. I hope the revised craft room won't take too long to complete as Hubby and his brother Carl are ready to soon start on that project. I can tell that work will commence soon, Carl left bunches of tools here.
I also last evening finished the blue green socks that I have been working on for several months. This pair has always been a back burner project, but they are now ready to wear. I have to the pictures up on Ravelry soon. They are Cherry Tree Hill superwash merino. No nylon--I hope they wear well, but I usually wear sandals or clogs, so that does help the heels
So, with all that being done, it was time to start new projects. I am still working on the rose-green cardigan, just past the ribbing and stitch increases. Not enough of a change to post new picture. It basically looks like it did in the August 24 post.
I mentioned last week that I bought a couple skeins of Bullfrogs & Butterflies in Liberty colorway. (Lorna's Lace) I had planned to make another of the ever versatile Shape-It scarves when I discovered that there was a updated version of it in the book Scarf Style. It is called the Wear-As-A-Collar Scarf. It is more tapered after the initial point, and actually doesn't have a point but has about 10 inches that are flat. Here is the yarn and the scarf at this point. I only have a few more inches, then cast off and wear. I really like the way it looks with the colonial red, blue and creamy white. I wear a lot of those colors so I should be able to wear it a lot.
So, having cast off my last sock, I had to get some more on the needles. I have here some blue veil dyed wool/silk that I got from Arbor Yarns. Hand dyed and no teal, just a soft pure blue. On my size one dp Harmony needles--a wonderful hardwood set of needles. They don't look like much, but they only have about 2 or 3 rounds of ribbing. I am thinking about a small cable for this pair. but I have plenty of time to decide what to do.
Then, for a new challenge I have unraveled some of the yarn out and started knitting from my kool-aid sock blank. It is double stranded blank so I am trying to knit 2 socks at a time on a LONG circular needle. I have a 47 inch Harmony size 1 2.25 mm. The jury is out whether I like using the 2 at a time style or not. But it would be a real pain knitting this blank on double points--I would have to keep switching from sock to sock on 2 sets of needles, or wind off one ply, then rewind to bet back to the same end to knit the second. I will keep that though in mind while evaluating the 2 socks on 1 needle technique.
Whew. That really makes it look like I've accomplished a lot. I better quit and get knitting.
