Happy Friday

I’m so happy that today is Friday. Even though most of my days are the same I just like the mental attitude that comes with Friday.

The last few days have turned chilly here and we’ve had rain off and on. I’ve used this as an excuse to hunker down and knit. Last night just before bedtime while watching The Last Czars on Netflix I completed the tube of socks. Later today I’ll bind off the stitches and start in on the heels. Maybe if the weather continues to be unpleasant I’ll have the socks done by the end of the weekend.

With the end of this project in view I’ve been thinking about what I’ll cast on next. I know I have another pair of socks to knit for Loopy Academy Grad School and I’ve picked out a pattern so that project is settled. What I’m thinking about are two other projects I want to cast on. I’m planning a simple brioche cowl as a gift. There is yarn in the stash for this. I’m also thinking about knitting a sweater and I’ve been looking a patterns trying to narrow down what I want. There are a few options and I can’t decide which option to go with. I’d like an oversized Icelandic style pullover or maybe a cardigan with a vented hem. This is where I run into trouble every single time. I can’t decide what I want.

    Knit them both! It’ll be a long winter!! 🙂

    Congrats on the socks. I’ve never knitted socks, but I bought a skein of yarn specifically for trying socks, then chickened out and decided to make a baby sweater with it instead!!

  2. I can relate to your comment about Friday. While I am now retired I find myself in the same Monday-Friday mindset. It helps to prevent a blur of sameness.

    I can never decide either! I’m happy it’s Friday too and am hoping for a mucky weekend so I can knit to my heart’s content!

    I agree, knit them both, they sound great! I love a good cardi as you know, but an oversized Icelandic wool sweater sounds like it might be just the ticket this winter. 🙂

  8. Funny, I was dreaming of Álafoss Lopi pullovers a few days ago too. Even did a pattern search at Ravelry, though I have no intention of knitting one this winter. There must be something in the air. I’d say go for the Icelandic pullover.

    I had all kinds of plans for knitting myself a sweater this year. So far, no good!! So maybe I will start one in the next month or so?

  10. Cast it all on. Knitting won’t spoil if you set it aside for awhile.
