I haven’t talked about what I’ve been knitting in forever, so I thought I’d take a bit of time before my ceramics class tonight and share the projects that I currently have on my needles.
Project 1: Stacy from Big Girl Knits; yarn: Tahki Yarns New Tweed, color 032; needles: addi turbos size 6 and 8
Status: Sleeve Island. Both the front and the back of this sweater went relatively quickly, but I started the sleeves over Thanksgiving. I think that all of the ribbing plus having to increase every four rows (i.e. keep track of where I am) plus knitting both at the same time is making these sleeves annoying to knit. I made myself work on them last night.
Project 2: Lenore socks, October STR pattern; yarn: STR lightweight, color Lenore; needles: addi turbos size 1 (two circs)
Status: Second sock started. I just discovered that I messed up the top of the first sock. I could rip out the second sock top so that it matches, but I like the top of the second sock better. This is my car and about the town knitting.
Project 3: Cambridge Jacket, IK Summer 2006; yarn: Karabella Yarns Aurora 8, color 138; needles: knitpicks options, size 8
Status: I am currently working on the fronts. I feel like between this sweater and the Stacy sleeve, I have altogether too much ribbed knitting going on. I really love the Aurora 8 yarn. It is smooshy and soft.
Project 4: Secret of the Stole 2; yarn: Baywood Yarns whipped creme, color cabernet; need;es: knitpicks options, size 5
Status: I finished clue 1 on Sunday, so I am completely caught up. I originally planned to use this yarn on the first secret of the stole, but had too many other things going on at the time. I think I’ll like this pattern better anyway.
Here’s a better picture of the yarn:
