1. Fetching - (the color is not even representative of it’s true nature. Digital cameras do not like red… mine especially. )
[Yarn is Knit Picks' Wool of the Andes Cranberry]
I’m actually nearly done with this one… but it is too small
(yes, just like Odessa …I detecting a theme here… )
So I’m going to rip this out and try again with size US 7 needles. The good news, tho, is that this is my very first cable project!! That was a goal for me to do this year. The cable needle is a little fiddly but ok. (I’m not ready to try it w/out a cable needle… I tried and it didn’t work.) I can’t wait to do more cable projects!
Here is picture of the front …
Below is the section that helped me come up with the name.
The only thing left to do is the bind off … but I’m not happy about which row I’ve ended on so I need to think about it before complete this project.
3. Socks –
These are in a holding pattern while I decide if I want to rip them out or continue them. The yarn is so pretty but the colors have become so muddy in this pattern and there’s a pooly-stripeyness that I just can’t get used to. And if the pattern looks familiar, it is. I modified the Cookie A.’s Monkey socks so I could do them toe up. There’s still one thing I wanna fix on the pattern. I learned a lot working on these. That’s why I’ haven’t ripped them out yet despite my frustration at knitting them.
4. Amethyst Socks
And, I’m still working on these socks.
I am on the heel of the 2nd sock.
Knitting on US size 2 needles goes sooooooooooooooooo slooooooooooow. But I’m still chuggin’ along.
Enjoy your week!
