I feel like knitting. Or maybe its just that my Fall Interweave Knits just arrived and I’m in love with three patterns. Bandalier Socks, Every Day Wrap, and the Farmer Market’s Cardigan. I’ve already opened up my Excel Spreadsheet of my yarn stash and identified yarn for the wrap and the socks. The cardigan I don’t have any yarn in my stash that is calling out to become it, most of the yarn that speaks to me is of a different gauge then the pattern calls for, but I’m not quite yet in sweater knitting mood anyway, and I really love pullovers rather than cardigans.
But the Every Day Wrap and the Bandolier Socks, casting on will commence soon, well that is if I can figure out what Box 1 is and how long it will take me to tunnel down to reach it.
I did just finish a little project. I’ve been promising our friends a hat for their little girl now for a couple of years. She loves Panda Bears, so what else then a Panda hat.
She loved it, I hated knitting it. The yarn was pure torture. In fact I have a lot of extra yarn leftover because I planned to knit mittens and a little scarf, but I couldn’t bring myself to self-torture. So I think its going in the trash and I will be free of it. But at least Violet has her panda hat.
you know I just realized I didn’t put a nose on it! Oh well. I don’t think the pattern called for a nose, but I think it may have been cuter with one.
