Wednesday morning, I was at the train station waiting and I pulled out my scarf to knit on. This woman sitting next to me says, “You know, I’ve seen you on the train knitting all the time. You inspired me to sign up for a knitting class in my building! It looks so relaxing!” I said “YOU DID??? THAT’S GREAT!!!” I asked her what building and it ended up being that she’s taking the class at Stitches East on 53rd. That convo made my day. I felt so happy to have inspired someone to actually start to knit!
I’m working steadily on all my WIPs and finishing lots of things lately. I have that Dreaded Yarn Diet, ya know!
I started a new project yesterday: a scarf from the Elizabeth I series. This is the Town & Country one. Very easy. It’ll be a xmas gift.
Here is a Multidirectional scarf that I started for my boss’s hubby for xmas (she has no kids so I decided to make him something instead. She’s always very generous to me and my kids during the holidays.) Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted
I started the Double Flower Washcloth (thanks, Theresa!). I’m ready to continue it and fly through it on circs but it’s the same size needle as the scarf! LOL Yarn: Tahki Willow
I think I mentioned before that I’m doing a Lady Eleanor from Scarf Style KAL with Jeanine. Yarn: Patons SWS
I started the legs of the Negative Bricks socks and didn’t like how the pattern was making the leg not-stretchy enough. So these will be regular old stockinette socks now w/maybe a cute ribbing at top. Probably Mistake Rib cuz ya’ll know how I love me some Mistake Ribbing!!! Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot
The Fetchings are still unfinished only because of the yarn situation (I ran out of the original yarn). I really don’t feel like ripping back on the finished one to use another yarn to finish both. WAAAAAAAAAH! Yarn: Tahki New Tweed
The Seamless Hybrid is slowly chugging along. I’m not too fast on stockinette in size 6 needles apparently!!!!! Yarn: Dale of Norway Sisik
Another thing I don’t enjoy doing is too much garter. I dunno WHY I haven’t finished this Baby Kimono, really! Maybe I’ll try to finish it this weekend. Yarn: Cascade Pima Tencel
Let’s not even talk about the Underwater Baby Afghan. Still at the same point from months ago. Yarn: Patons Plymouth Encore
Well, that’s my WIP update. I HAVE been finishing a bunch of things as ya’ll know so I don’t feel too bad about those last two UFO’s. They’ll get done…eventually!
