Happy Wednesday! It has been raining for almost a week here in Des Moines. So far we have a dry basement. I love knitting in the rain. It feels so cozy to be working with yarn on a dreary day. It really should have been a productive week for me, but it really wasn’t.
I’m still working on the body of my sweater. I have about six rows of ribbing to go, then it is on to the sleeves. I hope I get there soon, as it is getting harder and harder to convince myself to pick it up and work on rows of ribbing that take 15 minutes to complete.
I would be on the sleeves by now, but I decided to start a pair of socks for travel knitting. I shouldn’t be working on the socks at home, but I’m picking them up and working on them. The yarn is Knit Picks Hawthorn in the Eliot colorway. The pattern is Up All Night Socks by Meanest Mommy Knits. It is an appropriate combination, as our Elliot was a horrible sleeper as a newborn and was up all night often. I love the pattern because it looks complicated but it is not. It’s easy to memorize, and I can take it with me to knit anywhere and not have a problem. It even went with me to knit night at the bar on Monday and I could still knit it after a pineapple moscow mule.
Please wish me luck finishing the body of my sweater. I’m ready to move on to the sleeves.
