Lots of things have caught my crafty attention over the last few weeks.
It has helped that spring has brought two major snowstorms back to back. The view out my window looks like:
(lots of snow, it was clear out there before this new blast of winter)
Works in Progress
Another Crafty Girl “Twinkle Sock” in Bulbasaur
I’m having a hard time getting back into knitting a patterned sock, so I chose a sock with an interesting rib and some fun arch shaping. It helps that I’ve done this pattern before. I’m pathetically slow when knitting rib though, so these will take awhile.
Large Hadron Collider Socks
String Theory Colorworks “Inertia” in Large Hadron Collider
Half way! I kitchenered the toe a few nights ago. Looking forward to this fun pair joining my sock drawer.
Sanguine Gryphon “Bugga” in Tulip Tree Beauty, Common Emerald Moth and Bess Beetle
Sucked it up and frogged back the 3rd stripe section. Let’s see if I can figure out what I was doing wrong. (I couldn’t when I looked at it) Playing with the Bugga was super nice though, so I want to work on the project.
I managed to get 2 repeats of the 3rd section back. This pattern and I are not clicking… I have to say I hate working on it. But I know that I’m going to like the end result. Oh the “joys” of being a product knitter.
Irish Coffee Sweater
just not into this…
Malabrigo “Rios” in Pearl Ten
This project came in under 10 days. Love the end result and the pattern was clear and easy.
Intentionally spun thick (though it turned out thick/thin) and 2 plied. I love how squishy it is! I think I like 2 ply yarn when the plies are more consistent though, so that will be a challenge next time.
