This week I was on a mission. For some reason, I was focused on getting two particular projects done. I started them in the beginning of August when we went to Ohio. Maybe it’s the idea that summer is ending and the cold weather is in sight, so I want to use them. Or that I just want to start knitting all-the-things, which I apparently seem to think I will need immediately, despite the fact that the cold weather won’t be upon us immediately. [Never mind the fact that I have my knitting Olympics project from February to finish, which would be great to have since it is a nice, cozy, hooded cardigan. But let’s not talk about that right now.]
So, I have two FO’s to show you! [For the non-knitter’s out there, “FO’s” are “Finished Objects”]
First is my Wheaten wrap:
It ended up being 72″ long and 22″ wide. I. LOVE. IT. It is so cozy and I just love the look of the lace/cable pattern. AND I love the Kent DK yarn. Now, I’m dying to make the Wheaten Cap and Mitts. But other things await…you will see later in this post.
I also finished my Shattered Sun Shawl:
Ok, so those were done. Off the needles. Off my radar (except for the Wheaten cap and mitts). I could focus on starting new things!
I’m now on to making the Black Cherry Lambic scarf for a class this winter:
A fun and interesting cables and lace pattern. Cables and lace? Hmmm. Seems familiar… *cough* Wheaten*cough*
Cute hat, right?
It always feels so good to start new projects. New possibilities. New challenges. New YARN!
I bought it and the doodlebugs wanted me to read it no less than FIVE times in a row. A great story about a girl who finds a magic box of yarn, knits sweaters for everyone and everything, but still has extra yarn. Who wouldn’t love that? If you have a doodlebug, they might love it too!
