Hi there, how are you today? I hope you had a nice weekend and that you were able to do all or at least most of what you had intended to do. I did some of what I had planned for but not all. I did not get a lot a knitting done either but that’s just how it goes sometimes.
Knitting wise, I’m still working on my Audrey cardigan. I have cast off the body and I’m working on sleeve one. It’s a slow process as now I’m knitting one row and purling the next. It seems to take a long time and I’m feeling that my progress is really slow now. Hopefully I’ll get some tome to work on the cardigan this week and maybe even finish one of the sleeves by the weekend; that would be great.
I have ordered some buttons online. I wasn’t sure what I’d like so I ordered a few sets and when they get here, I’ll put them on the cardi and choose the one that I like best.
I have also been knitting on the Harry Potter scarf for my daughter. It is not getting a lot of love but I’m trying to knit on it a little bit every day. Luckily as I’m using Aran weight yarn and 5.50mm needles, it does grow quickly.
Here’s a picture I posted on Instagram this weekend when I was knitting on the scarf AND watching Harry Potter with the family.
I also finished the pair of baby socks. I stared those last week but ended up ripping them out to the toe and then re-knitting. I finished both socks and I have plenty of yarn left so I’m thinking I’ll knit a matching hat or mittens or even both depending on the patterns I choose.
I based these on the Tube Socks for Children by Jane Richmond only I cast on fewer stitches. I knit these in 40 stitches so I think they will be fine for a 3-6 months old baby. On the picture the contrasting toe and cuff looks grey but it’s actually more like a chocolaty brown color.
That’s all I have been knitting on this past week. This week I hope to make progress on the scarf and the cardigan. I don’t know if I’ll pick up something else. I do have a huge basket of wips in my room that needs love but for some reason I’m not feeling adventurous and just sticking to a few things. Sort of feels like my knitting mojo is limited these days. Not gone by a long shot but just less intense and so I’m not as enthusiastic as I usually am and not knitting on as many things.
I was going to share with you my Golden Skein adventure but I have been advised that I need to be patient a little longer and so I will have to hold off for that for a few more days.
I hope to be back soon with more info on my current wips and yarn dyeing. Until then take care and have a wonderful week.
