I’m in one of those phases where I am just casting on whatever I want because knitting should be fun. So I have more projects on the needles than I normally have. I don’t have any socks on the needles right now, which is really weird.
I’ve finished the first two parts of the Vertices Unite shawl. I really enjoy working on this pattern. These are not my normal colors, which makes it even more fun to knit. I took the photos late in the day, so the colors look much more muted than they are in real life.
When I’m in the mood for colorwork I reach for my Reywa Cowl. It is beautiful. I’m enjoying knitting with yak. I long for the mental capacity to work on colorwork in the evenings, but I’m not there right now.
My mindless knit is a cowl I’m making out of a handspun gradient. I knit in the round for a bit and then started knitting back and forth. I’m making it bandana-ish, as wearing a big shawl like a big bandana is kind of my jam. I’m just going to knit this until I run out of yarn.
My current spin is some merino from Honey Gold Acres. This is a birthday spin for a friend that requested bulky yarn. Today I’ve learned that I’m not consistent when I’m spinning thicker yarn. It will still be pretty, and I’ll get better as I work through the braid.
What has been keeping you busy this week?
