There has been kind of a lot of casting on and a lot of ignoring of the UFOs going on around here lately. It’s so easy to deny that something is getting a little hard or that stress is interfering with taking on a challenge. I’m going to lay it all out here.
I cast on some Fiddlehead Mittens a couple of weeks ago. I think my hands were cold at the time. I went great guns for a few days but then I sat them aside. I picked them up again at the end of last week and completed through the thumb gusset. I love this pattern and the idea of having super warm lined mittens is fantastic. Now I just have to knit them. The yarn is discussed here.
I needed something plain and simple for Knit Night so I cast on a sock. This is the yarn N gave me for Christmas. He is the best gift buyer. He really takes into consideration what each person likes and then shops accordingly. The yarn is Deborah Norville’s Serenity sock in Indigo. The pattern is the usual one from inside my head.
For my birthday I ordered the new Socktopus book. I like so many of the patterns in the book that I kind of cast one on without really thinking it through. This is the Kandahar pattern in Paton’s Kroy Socks in the grey brown marl color. I’m sure I’ll get back to it eventually.
In the interest of complete disclosure, I am planning to cast on Bláthnat, a mystery sock KAL taking place on the Sock Knitters Anonymous group. Yes, I admit I have a bit of a sock problem and I have joined a 12 step group! I am going to use Sensations Bamboo & Ewe yarn in purple.
Notice there has been no mention of the sock I was knitting in Tess Designer yarn. Check back Friday for an update on those.
Now that I have fully confessed and hopefully received absolution I can continue on with my knitting and not feel guilty. If you’d like to read more WIP Wednesday posts be sure to visit Tami’s Amis blog.
