Okay I admit it. I’m addicted to sock knitting. For the last 4 weeks, I’ve been working on other projects and dangling casting on a new pair of socks like a carrot. I’ve finally finished my All-over Faroese Shawl by Heartstrings.
Now I’m working on my Daily Sweater in hopes of finishing it soon. I took it to Danville knit night to work on it only to discover that I’d removed the tips to work another project and hadn’t re-attached them. So I worked on my Snow on Cedars Mitts instead. This is a KAL project that should be finished by February 28.
I finished my February Baby Sweater and plan to make booties and hat to match. I have several other baby sweaters to make.
Sunday afternoon was my guild meeting. The program was on looms and weaving. We knitters lined up and worked our pieces and then one of the members came in with some shawls she’d woven on a triangle loom. The knitting was thrown aside. When I got home, I ordered a 3-foot one. This will be a great way to use some of my handspun. (Although Izzy thinks that cakes of handspun make great cat toys, she collapsed a cake of my Creatively Dyed sea wool handspun in about 4 piles on the work table. I think I can get it back together with my niddy noddy. ) I’m anxiously awaiting my loom’s arrival. Saturday I’ll be going to Rising Meadows farm for shearing day so probably won’t weave until next week. I hope a co-worker can build me a larger one. I also plan to buy an inkle loom. I’ve been really good about working/finishing my other projects.
Next up on the needles is my clapotis in Loopy Legends Debra’s Celtic Treasures.
And maybe, just maybe this weekend I can cast on a new pair of socks before I go into complete sockknitting withdrawal.
Happy knitting to my knitting friends and grace and peace to all.
