I started a sockhead cowl as a simple ‘in the car’ knit for all of the times we have a 6+ hour drive to do groceries (we try to go once every few months) and any other car drives we might have (even going to the next town over is an hour each way). I’m using a single ply yarn from knitpicks, hopefully it comes out nice and comfortable. I am not sure I’ll get it done this winter (it’s a lot of garter stitch), but I’d also like to knit two dickies for the kids (they are too young for scarves) to keep them warm when we play outside here in the North.
Off the needles and onto my feet – these socks are finally done. The pattern is Clark Socks from Ravelry, the yarn is Prairie Smoke. They look and feel great on my feet.
I recently knit myself a slouchy hat using some of my handspun yarn from Three Waters Farm. I absolutely love how it turned out. It’s a merino / tencel blend and I did it up in a three ply. Not only was it one of my best spins ever, it just knit up so beautifully.
I’m quickly learning that just because a batt or skein LOOKS good doesn’t always necessarily mean I’ll enjoy working with it. I’ve come across more than my fair share of hard to work with materials. I’m also learning which one are a dream to process, and what price I’m willing to pay for that.
I finished knitting one of my cable socks and now I need to knit the second one (I’ve cast it on and started the ribbing so far). Hopefully it doesn’t take me too long to finish up, I love how these turned out. Next on my needles? Not sure, but I’m thinking a sweater or cardigan of some type. Winter is coming, after all!
It won’t be too long until I’m onto the toes! Then it’s time for sock two…
I still need to block the shawl, but it is now completed! I’m so happy with it, the size is lovely, the silk lace portion hangs wonderfully, and I had a lot of fun knitting it up (even if it did seem to take forever). Onward to the next project!
I’ve started my next knitting project! A pair of socks – these are called “Clark Socks” on Ravelry. They knit up beautifully, and I could not be more in love with the pattern.
Another skein completed! It just needs a bath to set the twist. No idea what I’ll make with this yet, but I’m happy to have freed up two bobbins.
Progress on this is so hard to picture because I’m only getting a row or two (or three) done each day, so instead I’ve been measuring it by how much yarn is left in the ball that I’m knitting from…
I feel like this is the shawl that just wouldn’t end – the ball of yarn doesn’t seem to be getting any smaller, but the lace section of this shawl is growing at least. I’m ready to move on to a new project but I really want to get it finished, first. I’m trying to use up all of the yarn on this instead of just the suggested 18 rows.
Pattern is Dragonstone found on Ravelry
