There’s a lot of knitting going on, but I’ve been reluctant to show progress shots. Finished shots are always a lot more interesting, but I decided to take some photos tonight for the record and so here they are.
For a little while I’ve been monogamously devoted to my Coraline cardigan, another delightful Ysolda pattern. It’s the kind of pattern where monogamy is really the only way you’re gonna get through stocking stitch on 3.5mm needles over 250 stitches. You just have to get on with it. The Rowan Felted Tweed, which I’ve been storing up for quite some time, is everything I hoped it would be.
Monogamy only lasts so long around here and even the most frenzied bout of it grows wearisome after a while. So I have two lace shawls going. Two! I’m nothing if not predictable in this regard.
Here’s my Brangian Shawl. It’s a fairly new pattern by newbie Australian lace designer, Bronwyn Parry, who is also a romance writer! Nice life huh?!
I started this last night, feeling an absence of mid-weight shawls in my works in progress life. This is in Knitter’s Addiction Cashmere.
And waiting in the wings for a night when I’m not so tired is my Triinu shawl from Knitted Lace of Estonia.
Naturally, I need to be knitting for Alice while she’s still small enough to get stuff on and off the needles fairly quickly. Here’s a simple Baby Garter Yoke cardi in Cleckheaton Country. Of course, patterns like this are only quick if you actually work on them more than once a week. As the weather has recently dropped well and truly, I’ve ramped up efforts.
Sean’s stripey socks are growing nicely, albeit only at the pub or on a bus.
More than enough to keep me busy, I think. Probably need to hold back on casting on for a while now otherwise I’ll never get a sense of completion, which, in case you haven’t noticed, is what drives me when I’m feeling there’s a bit too much on. The only cure is to knit.
