I was at Daughter's kitty sitting on Saturday night while she and hubby made a quick trip to New York for a very special reason. I'll tell you all about that tomorrow. Since I wasn't going to be there long I just packed up my latest knitting projects. This was a new sock-with the emphasis on WAS....
That yarn barf had a fatal knot in it that actually shredded this 100% acrylic sock yarn when I tried to pry it out. Since I hated the color and I hated the feel of it, I threw it all away. Life is too short for yucky yarn. I immediately went and ordered some cotton sock yarn from WEBS to take it's place.
I do like these. I hope there is no barf or knots in there anywhere. I really should have rewound the yarn before I cast on. Boo me.
I got a few more rows on my Hawthorne socks. I am past the heel now.
I cast on another Pimpliesse. It is my favorite pattern for wonky handspun. That's the Green with Envy Polwarth that I spun during this year's Tour.
Finally, I got some serious mileage on my Lofoton sleeve. I know it looks weird but...
....here is what it will look like when the lining is tucked in. I've never made a sleeve like this before but I am just sitting back and going along for the ride. This pattern is too complicated for rethinking it.
I really like the sock style you’re working on now. The color changes are great! The Pimpliesse is my “go to” shawl pattern. I’ve made around a dozen of them over the past few years. Love the color you’ve chosen.ReplyDelete
I had to go look up that sleeve pattern... my that's going to be lovely!ReplyDelete
Love that sleeve pattern!! That's so pretty!ReplyDelete
Your sleeve is amazing! You do some intricate work. I love your socks too. I am on the vest pattern and I choose it because i trust the Knitting Pure and Simple FOlk to walk me through itReplyDelete
Fabulous knitting and great colors. I have to go investigate that sleeve and the shawl. I hope I have not been enabled.....ReplyDelete
Your knitting projects are fantastic! I'm glad you chucked the unhappy yarn and got some new happy stuff. I am a little wary of the cotton sock yarn, or cotton yarn in general. It behaves differently. The lofoton sleeve work is just gorgeous!ReplyDelete
All your project look terrific, I agreed with the way you dealt with that unruly yarn. Been there done that!ReplyDelete
Life is too short to knit with yucky yarn, and I might add knitting time is limited so knit with what you like.ReplyDelete
