This week I've been focusing on two projects.
I'm adding inches to the body of the fair isle sweater and love the mindlessness of stockinette stitch. So much fun! Mindless knitting allows me to read a book or watch TV and I have minimal mistakes or if I'm lucky no mistakes. Never say never.
My yarn choice for the fair isle sweater is Quince and Co Chickadee which is pure delight to knit with. I love the dark gray with a bit of tweediness spun into the wool.
My other project is a pair of simple socks for my husband. The pattern is burned into my memory and really old. I usually do a 2 1/2 inch cuff then switch to stockinette (mindless!) for the rest. This sock yarn is slightly thicker than regular yarn so there's some heft to the sock. I think he will love them when I finish them.
This project is my 'grab and go' project. Car rides or babysitting, I've got everything in a project bag ready to grab and go.
What are you knitting or making this week?
