I have to be perfect honest in saying that I haven’t made much progress on my knitting over the last week or so. I’ve been suffering a bit of tennis elbow which is turn has slowed down my knitting. I shared with a friend last week that I think my biggest issue is from holding my knitting to tightly. So I’m trying to relax a bit while knitting to see if that will help me not to develop tennis elbow as often.
Now on to the knitting ……
I am currently working on my handspun Favorite Scarf Ever. I am almost finished with my first skein of handspun and I have to say I’m loving how my scarf is looking. I am finding that I will have a bit of “marling” in a place or too, but I don’t mind as it looks good being there.
I am also working on my Night’s Watch in Anzula Squishy. I haven’t made a tremendous amount of progress on this shawl but hope to on Friday as it will me my take along project for hospital knitting (hubby is having a test done). I love both the yarn and the pattern and hope to have this project off the needles by the end of the month.
My Cozy Autumn Socks are on hold at the moment but I plan to start working on them again this weekend. It would be nice to have a finished pair of socks for this month, after all it is “Socktober”.
I really love the look of the yarn and I think it is a perfect match for Olivia’s pattern.
As far as other knitting, I have sent two more items to the frog pond and I know a few of you are probably shaking your head at me. I decided the Irish Coffee sweater just wasn’t for me and the Mirkwood Scarf in Jacob wasn’t working out quite as I hoped. I love the pattern but the yarn wasn’t a good choice. I think my problem in projects lately is due to indecisiveness. I need to focus more on what I really want to knit and not what I think should be knitted. I know that might not make sense to a few of you, but seriously that’s how my mind works at times. The yarn for both frogged projects will be used, I’m just not quite sure for what yet.
