Yuh-huh, it’s Friday.
And there’s a bit more progress to report on Frida — but I’m gonna wait til Monday to show you. Cuz I was too lazy to take a photo.
Have you considered Ingeborg as your next project?
No, it won’t be next. I’ve not bought yarn for it yet and don’t plan to immediately. Right now, the best bet for my next project (are you reading this, Vanessa?) is Flora. Subject to change at my whim.
Do you find the sweaters you felt were tedious in the knitting process end up becoming favorites to wear or do you end up NOT wearing them as often because they gave you such a headache during their creation?
There seems to be no correlation between level of tedium and popularity of my sweaters. Some of the more tedious to knit are my favorites to wear. And some I loved to knit I never wear. Go figure.
Apple Butter Sock
Here’s a progress pic of my first sock, in mid-heel-turning!
And that brings me to something I’ve been thinking about lately. What’s this?
The one on the right is a Brittany birch US size 0 dpn. The one on the left is a white birch toothpick. Exactly the same diameter as a US size 0 needle — 2mm. I gotta box of a thousand of them in my kitchen drawer.
Hmmmmm . . .
Reading about Lisa‘s glove affair every day is starting to wear down my resistance. I think I feel some gloves coming on. And you know what would make absolutely fab glove needles? You guessed it! I could knit the fingers with toothpicks!
As the glove-worthy Lisa pointed out, there’s a great basic glove pattern in Handspun Handknit, which I’ve knitted several times in the past. And it’s not like I don’t have tons of sock yarn I could use . . .
Kind of a theme going on — here’s today’s offering. Stitched ages ago! On 22-count fabric. Ga-a-ack!
Have a great weekend, and be sure to stop by Rachael’s Glass House to welcome her home — she’s all moved in to her new place, ya know!
Lucy’s pooped just thinking about it!
