Happy February!

Happy February!


 

Despite my vow to myself that I’d not start anything new until my WIPs were finished, I found I could’t exist one more day without at least casting on the Abella Pullover from Knitpicks Sunday Morning patterns and so caved.  A word to the wise – Beware the 279 stitch i-cord cast on. 🤪

Sometimes You Just Need………

Sometimes You Just Need………


A QUICKIE

Something fast, something that gives (almost) immediate gratification.  I’m in the middle of a sweater, a huge crocheted shawl, a pair of socks, a dog sweater and the cutest flag garland ever.   I’m not counting my Christmas knitting — it’s not the last minute yet and I don’t want to let the cat out of the gift bag.  Anyhow, despite my vow to not start anything new until the WIPs are at least a little bit under control, I caved.  I needed a project that offered some immediate gratification.  Rav served up the perfect pattern, Leafy Washcloth.   I knit up the first one last evening and it’s blocking as I type this.

 

I used some Sugar and Cream cotton that I had around and size 7 straight needles, filling the immediate gratification bill perfectly.  Feels so good to have a FO!
