I’ve got 3 projects on needles, and I’m about to start another one. Busy busy!
My Rebecca sweater is almost finished. I actually finished knitting it 3 weeks ago, but putting the pieces together is taking a while. For some reason, my sleeves, knitted per the pattern, were not right for the armholes, so I needed to make some adjustments. I’m really not experienced enough to handle this alone, and I haven’t been able to make it to knitting class regularly to get help. I anticipate finishing it this weekend.
I knit J a hat using this pattern and fabulous alpaca yarn. After lots of knitting, tearing out and re-knitting (my first time using double points), it turned out way too big. That’s what I get for not gauging. So I ripped it all out and adjusted this pattern to suit my needs. It was a quick knit (now that I’ve figured out double points) and turned out great. Unfortunately, it’s already gone missing; fortunately, I have another ball of yarn…
I bought this great blue yarn for a cowl but then changed my mind and decided to make a circle scarf.
Now that the weather has turned colder, I really need a warm hat. I picked up this bold turquoise yarn and intend to cast on for this hat/scarf combo soon.
