Past and Future Projects
Good morning! Now that the hoopla is over, I am embracing my slow days and reacquainting myself with forgotten knitting projects. Some on the needles and some in my imagination. The imagination ones can be the best. I LOVE the striping of my cowl. However that stockinette I craved during the weeks leading up to the wedding is super boring now.
I thought you'd like to see the never ending sock blanket, I love it and so does everyone else. I haven't worked on it these hot summer days but every once in awhile I do an hour's worth of knitting before the heat of the wool over takes me. I am dreaming of cool autumn days of snuggling under this mammoth and knitting away. Those days are coming!
Now for my imagination knitting. I have this last skein of Regia yarn that has been discontinued and is more than 10 years old. I see a lovely pair of socks for me. I have three other pairs in this workhorse yarn and in their 10 year use they are still going strong. I have never put a hole in a pair of hand made socks though. I must walk gingerly :)
Dear sweet Stella, my Maggie Rabbit that my sister made for me, has been patiently awaiting a sweater. I must start one before the cold weather starts. I dug through my scraps and odds and ends and found this sock yarn left over from my first hitofude cardigan. We can be matchy matchy!
Of course I'd like to start some shawl knitting but for now I have plenty to keep me happy. Tomorrow I'll share with you the featherweight cardigan.
