Hello! My knitting the past week has been awesome. I'm on the second sleeve of my fair isle sweater. I'm quite confident that the cuff will be knit and bound off tonight. After work tomorrow I will soak and block the sweater. Can you imagine how excited I am to wear this while it's still winter time?
Last week I didn't have a portable project on the needles to grab and go when I was babysitting. This week I have two projects.
Over the weekend I cast on another cowl, Heart Warmer. When I saw this cowl, I was excited to see the same shape as the three color cashmere cowl only in one color. I will probably not change needle sizes as called for in the pattern and instead I'll block the daylights out of the cowl. Also I'm not a fan of bobbles so I'll either do a purl stitch or a yarn over (I haven't decided yet).
I started this wurm hat before the fair isle sweater, but then the sweater took over my brain and I put the wurm hat aside. I robbed the four inch needle tips from the hat for the sweater sleeves as well (this is why I had nothing for babysitting last Wednesday!).
I have two wurm hats and wear my green one all the time. I wanted a simple gray hat (I'm in a gray mood, ha) to go with my black coat and the myriad of cowls and shawls I wear. This will work!
What are you working on this week?
