Ain’t no cure

for the wintertime blues. Yep we’ve all got them and are all about over winter and ready for spring. I love winter and even I’ve had enough. I’ve spent a lot of time dealing with cleaning off the car and shoveling snow and rearranging my days because work or appointments were changed which means less knitting. I am hoping that spring will cure these blues and the sooner the better. Now enough whining let’s talk about the (k)nits.

My “big” just (k)nits for fun project, Severi, is moving right along. I’m on the fifth yoke box. I failed to count every five rows which resulted in a visit to the frog pond. I’m trying to finish a box a day but may not make it today. My plan was to finish it this week but that will not happen. I’m not thrilled with the way this sweater looks. The yoke boxes have ladders which I’m hoping will go away when blocked. Also I’m afraid that I won’t have enough yarn. I’m on my last skein out of 3 and have finished four and a half boxes so not sure that I have enough to finish the last 2.5.2014-03-18 17.43.01 The colorway is discontinued and none is listed for destash on Ravelry. I may have to finish the center of the last box with one of the solids. I bought the quantity suggested by the pattern.

Over the weekend, I just (k)nits bound off Basic Bowling Pin Body in Dancing Dog Dyeworks  Waltz Worsted2014-03-18 17.44.06 The Grinch in Whoville colorway on US size 5 needles. I also just (k)nits bound off another Maggie the Mama Owl in Malabrigo Rios Jupiter and Lavanda colorways on US size 5 needles. This yarn makes very nice fabric for softies so I’ll be using it often when Gate City Yarns has it.

Still in just (k)nits for fun is 2014-03-18 17.44.35Small Peanuts Elephant in Another Crafty Girl Merino Worsted Our New Home colorway and Cascade 220 using US size 5 needles.  I’m hoping to finish before Friday but that is not looking good right now. If not, I’ll finish her up with just (k)nits casting on, Flyspeck Fox, Runty Raccoon and another Cutie Cactus.

Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just knits.
