Happy Wednesday. I’ve spent the last week knitting a lot of random things, and it has been refreshing.
After finishing the Diamond Girl Hat I focused on finishing the blue socks for Audrey. I always think kids socks are going to fly off the needles, and I’m shocked when they take more than a few days. I’m happy to be done with them. I hope that Audrey still likes them when they fit her.
Audrey asked me to make Mr. Giraffe (her best friend) a blanket. I couldn’t turn her down, especially because I had recently discovered a ball of Knit Picks Brava Bulky in my bag where I keep dishcloth cotton. The color is something I would never pick, but Audrey says that Mr. Giraffe’s favorite color is brown, so it worked out. I cast on 40 stitches and knit until the ball was gone.
After Mr. Giraffe got a blanket Audrey said Elliot’s animals needed one too. Luckily I found almost a full ball of Hikoo yarns Simpliworsted with the dishcloth cotton too. I cast on 35 stitches and knit until it looked done. Elliot loves the blanket. Margaret and the blanket came with us in the car to the library today.
I cast on a fourth favorite slouchy hat last night. I decided it would be a good project to have around when I don’t feel like working on my other projects. I have the pattern memorized, so I might keep the project in my purse to knit whenever I find time.
I am also working on a new pair of socks for John. I am using Madeline Tosh in the Home colorway. I love the colors in the sock, and I always enjoy knitting with Madeline Tosh yarn. I am getting burnt out on sock knitting, so I plan on taking my time knitting these.
Are you working on several projects? Do you have any big projects on the needles? Tell me what you’re working on. I love hearing from other knitters.
