We had three themes to pick from and when I saw that “Blue Monday” was one of them I had to use this yarn. I’m using the Baby Cable Rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks. I love it so.
Lady Eleanor continues to grow. I have 5 more skeins of wool and then I’ll decide if I need to go longer or not. I like my shawls to be fingertip to fingertip and I’m tall so I’ll see where it ends up.
I have a couple of items I’d like to admit are in the UFO heap and will commit to knitting on each of them every week till they are done. Cinxia and Viveka will be first because they’re definitely for colder weather.
Cherry Bomb – Big Girl Knits
Cinxia – Knitty
Viveka – Knitty
Moderne Log Cabin Blanket (aka Sad Blankie) – Mason Dixon Knitting
Although, the colder weather thing… We’ve had unnaturally warm weather here in NJ. It may possible get up to 70 degrees tomorrow. Maybe I shouldn’t worry about knitting those warmer sweaters first.
I finished the Socks that Rock and although it looks like I have a BIG HUGE gusset hole issue, it’s actually a goof in the pattern I made up. I didn’t plan for that very well and I didn’t notice it when I was knitting the 1st or 2nd sock, so it will stay there as a lesson to check self created patterns more carefully.
