Like most knitters I have many projects going at once with a few of them really going no where. I see new patterns posted on Ravelry or photos of test knits on Instagram and I immediately have the urge to buy the pattern and cast on.
This happened to me several months ago when I saw someone post a photo of their finished Buttercup ( design by Heidi Kirrmaier) on Instagram. This pattern has been on my list of must knits for a very long time and of course I had to buy the yarn and cast on immediately.
Hmmmm…. that was in April and I haven’t made much progress. For this project I’m using 10 skeins of Elsebeth Lavold’s Hempathy and a size US 4 circular needle. I have two more increases to go for the body and then it will be smooth sailing to the bottom edge.
Languishing on my needles are two pairs of socks. I started a modified version of Los Monos Locos and I’m just about finished with the first sock. I’m using Premier Yarns Serenity Sock Prints in Surf. I really love the yarn and the striping, I just can’t seem to get this one done so I can start the mate.
