Hello everybody! I hope you have had a lovely almost two weeks since I last posted. I’ve managed to finish something, make some progress on others and a even have a few projects worked out in the planning stages for future patterns which I’m very excited about. Currently in the works are some fingerless gloves and a autumnal pair of socks. Cannot wait to get some obligational knitting out of the way so I can get back to those designs!
I’ve finished the husbands Sockhead Hat! It was indeed miles of stockinette and I might have enjoyed it more if I wasn’t so distracted by wanting to start some new things. It’s a really good knit for reading or watching TV. I have plans to make another one for myself eventually. The yarn is Countess Ablaze in a one of a kind colorway, “Question Authority”. My project page for this can be found here.
As for the wips, I experimented with and finished a single sock. It was originally for me and I wanted to see if I liked the fit of a slightly bigger sock but I decided I like my socks really fitted and made them for dear husband instead. I didn’t hear any complaints from him! Project page with notes linked here.
The brioche scarf has only gained about an inch so I won’t be posting a progress photo of that. I ended up putting a few squares in my slowly growing scrap yarn blanket. I had a bit of an accident last week which involved boiling hot soup dumped all over my hand (insert facepalm here) which gave me quite the burn and has seriously cut into my knitting time! But I seem to be over the worst of it now and I’ve been really enjoying doing a square or two in the evening with a good book. I foresee much more knitting on this in the immediate future as it’s making me so happy. Project page here.
That brings me to my favorite things for this post and I’m really loving my KnitPro Zing DPNs for blanket square knitting. I’m using a 3mm with some Clover stoppers on one end so they’re like a mini straight needle. I just really like the minimal grip with these needles.
That’s it for me this time! As always, thank you so much for coming by and catching up with me. If you have any questions or comments feel free to comment below or send me an email!
