All that yarny excitement of the past week has spawned a small tidal wave of new projects. I can’t seem to stop casting on!!
That’s three sweaters, a pair of socks and a new design hat in my WIP basket. You’ll be pleased to see I’m making use of some of my newly acquired stash already. That lovely orange (it’s not quite as bright in real life) is the yarn I picked up from Travelling Threads at the Creative Fibre Festival. Eric needs a new hat and mittens.
The red project is the beginnings of Irish Moss by Alice Starmore. I think it’s coming on nicely, but I won’t say much more about it just yet.
This is almost all of one sweater. It won’t fit in the basket.
You might be wondering how the pattern writing is coming on for Tidal. It’s not too far away. I’m going to satisfy my OCD tendencies and test knit another version to make sure the pattern is right before I release it.
It’s a glorious afternoon, and best of all, there was a frost this morning!!!! Ah, sweet relief, it’s finally becoming cooler. On that note, I shall potter off and quickly mow the lawns before we lose the light. One must make the best of good weather when it is here!
