I’m moving along on Elliot’s sweater. He loves trying it on. He does not love standing still for a photo.
Last week we headed up to Boone, IA to take a trip on the Scenic Valley Railroad. The kids were excited to take their first train ride. It was a beautiful ride through a river valley.
I finished a pair of socks last week. I’m calling these socks Halloween socks, but I have been told the orange looks like pink in most light. Oh well. I took these socks to work on in Wisconsin. The yarn is from Marilee, so it was almost like having her there with me.
I’m not feeling socks right now, which is frustrating because I have a large sock yarn stash and a desire to have more handknit socks. I hope the mojo returns soon, as I have lots of fall yarn I would like to turn into socks this year.
I started a new Harvey sweater for Elliot. He requested the same sweater that he grew out of, so I’m making a bigger size. He says the sweater is itchy. I hope that wearing a shirt with the sweater will solve that.
I finished my first Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival project: a beer mug beanie. I bought a kit for this hat, yet ran out of black yarn. I adjusted the crown decreases and used two stands of sport in a very close black.
I have a new pair of sport weight socks to keep my feet cozy. This is my Knit Spin Farm Little Known Holidays Yarn Club for January in the Inspire Your Heart with Art Day. These socks are a great example of why I love this club. I love these socks, but I never would have picked out the yarn. I like expanding my sock drawer with new fun colors.
Are you working on socks this week? I think I’ll spend a couple of weeks sock knitting free. We shall see if that happens.
