“Sarah, you have not posted about what you’ve knit lately. What are you working on?” Ah, that is true, I have not posted about knitting in a while.
Socks! I am only on the first one and am loving it. “But wait, you’re allergic to wool. What kind of yarn are you using?” A Ravelry friend had sent me some Cascade Fixation, which is cotton and elastic, last year or so. It’s so sprongy! I am following Silver’s Sock Class tutorial. It is well written and has lots of pictures. On the two parts where I’ve gotten stuck a friend showed me in person and then it made more sense. I am ready to start the second part of the gusset.
After years of being in squaresville I am loving knitting in the round. Back in the autumn I had made my first fingerless gloves.
The pattern was fun and easy but the yarn…what a pain in the ass. The ends are all fraying and coming apart. I loved using size 13 needles! Felt great in decrypted hands.
I made a ton of chair booties for the kitchen chairs. Lots of good practice for in the round. Good stash down project, too.
I made Cole a toy as a Christmas gift but he found it weeks before so he got an early Christmas.
In trying to use up stash I made another coaster.
Still plugging away on Harry’s scarf. It is about nineteen inches long.
Looking back I have been busy.
Links about projects are to my stuff on Ravelry.
