Sundays are always a great day for me to take stock of projects and decide what to get finished first, what might need to be frogged and what might be considered for the future. I have not been too busy with knitting and as mentioned in early posts I have taken a bit of a break to pursue other creative adventures.
Today though, I wanted to share what I have finished, what I’m still working on and what I am thinking about making in the future.
Off the Needles..
I recently finished my Happy Harvest Poncho and while I loved knitting it, as well as the design, I am not quite sure if I like how it looks on me. I used Berroco Ultra Wool Chunky and really enjoyed knitting with this yarn. It really gives great stitch definition and blocks out great.
Now I am working on my Nurmilintu handspun shawl, hitch I LOVE and hope to be finished with it soon!
I started this shawl several months ago and kept putting it aside. I love how it is starting to look and the colors of my handspun is so yummy…. very southwestern too!
Also on my needles is a pair of Jeck socks in Mani Pedi by Lion Brand Yarn. I have finished one sock and just cast on the mate. I will be using the Afterthought Heel for this pair and hope to have them finished over the next week or so.
I am not sure what I will cast on next after these two projects are finished. I do know I will have at least another sock project and maybe it’s time for something in crochet!
For socks I am thinking about these patterns:
- Dionysus Socks by Abby Frelich
- Fawkes by Money Toes
- By The Seine River by Dona Knits
For crochet I am thinking about these patterns:
- Fronds Shawl by Joanne Scarce
- Light From Within by CJ Brady
- Happiness Blooms From Within by CJ Brady
- V-Stitch Vortex by Susan Sands
