I have a few projects going at the moment. I am still spending most of my time in the recliner with my foot up knitting. It is not as delightful as it seems. I’m having a very hard time sitting still, but being up on my scooter leads to lots of pain, so I continue to sit.
Here’s what I’ve been working on.
I told my family that I would knit them anything they wanted this year. They each got to choose one project. John picked a blanket. I’m using sport weight merino that his parents brought back from Italy two years ago and Knit Picks Paragon, a merino, alpaca, silk blend. It’s not an exciting project to work on, but the yarn feels great. I am trying to knit one 50g ball a week on this blanket.
I’m using my Chromatic Yarns Advent calendar yarn to make an outline wrap. I’m knitting the colors in the order they were received. This project will look totally different after it is blocked. These are not my normal colors or the type of project I normally work on, but I am LOVING this.
The Midas Hat (Ravelry link) is my current favorite hat pattern. Other than vanilla socks I rarely repeat a pattern. This will be the fourth Midas Hat I’ve made. I’m using yarn Bonny bought because it was purple but the photo was a lie and it isn’t purple so she sent it to me. I am not sure if this hat is for me yet. It might go to my sister because I think the blue speckles will go with the mittens I made her for Christmas.
I’m trying to keep myself to three projects, only because it’s cumbersome to have so many projects bags around my chair. I have so many yarns I want to knit with, so I might be casting on a fourth project today.
What are you working on?
