You know, I think it might well be! 🙂 Hooray!!
As you can see, I’ve finished a couple of things and started on a bigger project, let’s see if I can pull it through.
Starting from the right, I’ve cast on for a jumper from Inspired Cable Knits by Fiona Ellis. The pattern is Gathering Intentions and I’m using some really old yarn from stash. It’s Patons Diploma Gold DK. I’ve had it for about 4 years now!! I love the colour of the yarn, so much so that I’m ignoring the icky acrylic feel of the yarn. The cables are definitely popping. 🙂
Also, with this knit, I’m learning something new. I cast on for both sleeves at the same time, on the same circular needle… 🙂 It’s not much of a technique, but it is new to me and I’m very proud of it.
Next are Ollie’s socks. Stats:
Yarn: Rellana Flotte Socke 6 fach Colori
Pattern: It’s a mish-mash of loads of other patterns, but plain st st
Needles: 3mm Knit Picks Harmony Circular using magic loop
In thought these would be a quick knit, but due to the Christmas gifts rush, these languished a bit (ok, a lot) and I only picked them up again because of the lack of mojo.
Finally, I started and finished a Crofters Cowl:
Yarn:The Plucky Knitter MCN Fingering in Nicholas & Alexandra
Pattern: Crofters Cowl by Gudrun Johnston
Needles: 4.5mm Knit Picks Harmony Circ.
I doubled the yarn up on this and even though it’s turned out great, I wish I’d added another repeat of the pattern. Other than that it’s lovely and soft and feels fab! I’ve been wearing it around the house due to the fact it’s been below freezing for a few weeks now. I’ve also worn it out when walking the dogs!
Oh and before I forget, there has been plenty of spinning!
Fibre: Lisa Souza BFL Top in ‘Emerald City’
Type: 2 ply Fingering (14wpi)
The fibre was a gift from Diane quite a while ago and I’ve been meaning to spin it up since it arrived. I think it’s gorgeous and the colours are so vibrant. I think a lovely scarf is in order.
That’s it for now, me thinks, but in the meantime, please keep your fingers crossed that I can keep the knitting mojo flowing. 😀
