I finished the pollen hat. It flew off the needles. It was such a fun pattern to knit. I highly recommend this pattern. Andrea Mowry comes up with such creative patterns.
I now need to decide if I’m going to pick up a project that is already on my needles or if I’m going to cast on a new project. I’m leaning towards casting on something new. I’m not feeling anything on the needles right now.
I finished the mittens in time for the wedding. I used Cascade 220 super wash for the yarn. I don’t usually use super wash, but I made these for non-knitters, so machine washable made the most sense. I hope they enjoy these and use them.
I have to be honest: I think it would be really cool if I could knit a pair of socks a week and share them with you every Monday, only because I like saying Sock It To Me.
I finished my Rainbow Dashing socks. I love how they turned out. Yarn Geek Fibers is wonderful, and I highly recommend you check her out. She goes to a lot of fiber festivals around the Mid-West, so if you are regionally local you might be able to find her in person. Her skeins are 110 g instead of 100 g, which I really like because I like tall socks. I also like bonus socks, and in this case I have enough leftover to make Audrey a pair of Rose City Rollers.
I hope all of your projects are making progress. I also hope you will find a way to use the phrase “sock it to me” in conversation sometime this week. I also hope I’m not the only one who used to watch Laugh In on Nick at Night.
I decided to darn my socks. I didn’t bother looking for yarn that matches or coordinates, I just grabbed some yarn. You won’t be able to see the fix when I’m wearing shoes so I decided not to bother. While darning them I noticed how thin the rest of the heels are. I don’t think these socks will last much longer. I won’t be patching them a second time.
