Winter hasn’t really kicked in with cold weather yet, but my brain is totally in winter mode. I just want to hang out and craft. It’s hard to get the kids outside to play, which is not good for them, but it is really good for my knitting productivity.
I cast on my January project last Friday. I’m making John the Bikey Beany from Alterknit. I don’t have much experience with colorwork, and I’m hoping to change that this year. I really enjoyed knitting the bikes, but now I’m at the boring part of the hat. I’m hoping to get to the crown decreases today, because I need more than stockinette in the round to keep the project interesting at this point.
I knit about an inch on my shawl this week. I am enjoying it, I just haven’t made time to pick it up.
I am making progress on John’s socks. Swim lessons start again tomorrow, so these will probably be going in the swim bag and worked on once a week. Or I’ll become obsessed with them and have them done by next week. There is very little middle ground in my knitting.
I’m apparently having a very blue January.
What are you working on this month? Do you have an unexpected color theme too?
