He’s finished! Well, ok, he’s nearly finished. All his pieces are knit, and most of them are assembled. He just doesn’t have his wings sewn on yet.
The Milk Run Shawl is officially off my needles! I finished it Wednesday during my lunch break. I’m pretty happy with how it has turned out so far. Now there’s only a couple steps left: dye it and then block it.
I’m obsessed with Knit Picks, if you haven’t guessed that yet. One of my favorite things about their podcast is listening to Kelley Petkun talk about her many projects. She has one for every single kind of knitting mood/situation you can imagine. I don’t think I can juggle as many as her, but I’ve been adding to my WIP pile again.
During a recent trip to Michaels to pick up magnetic paper and neon-colored paints, I came across this interesting yarn. It’s called Sugar n Cream Scrubby. It has these soft ridges along the edges but is still pretty soft. Has anyone used this before?
I had an extremely productive weekend. That’s not to say I finished any of my WIPs, but I did get a lot of work done on a couple of them. Okay, mostly I got a lot done on my shawl, which I absolutely love.
Last night I started Lesson Two of Nina’s Design Your Own Sweater Class from Knit Picks. It didn’t take long to figure out what to do at this point. I had to cast-on a LOT of stitches. Luckily, I have a very skinny husband, but one who also kind of likes baggy sweaters. The grand total came out to 240 stitches on size 6 circ needles.
Last week was a week of indecision. I’ve started and torn out stitches over and over again. I want a cowl. I know I want a cowl. I just haven’t been able to get that going. Then, indecision hit the socks. I didn’t finish the socks, and I really should’ve been able to. Then I tore out the blanket. No more blanket. Nothing got finished last week.
