Inching ForwardIt's been, hm, over a year. While I haven't stopped knitting, it's safe to say that I've slowed down significantly. Why? Life. It gets in the way of knitting sometimes. One day I may eventually write about the things that have transpired, but suffice to say that for now, I'm getting the knitting mojo back again and that I hope to have more FO's for the year ahead.
This blog is meant to document the projects that I have made over the last year - pitifully few, but nonetheless let's get to it. (Let's face it, it's more for me now anyways. I probably lost all my readers a long long time ago).
Ah yes, the Pomatomus socks. I knew from the get-go that the perfect st count for socks for my feet would be way less than the 72 sts that the pattern states to CO. So modifications galore and voila. Perfect fit.
Needles used: Sz 1 addi's (2.5mm), magic loop, 60 sts leg to 64 sts foot
Materials: Koigu KPPPM (p219), 2 skeins
Next, the ball-band dish cloth that everyone and their mothers have made. I've made a few, and this is just one of many. I think we have seen enough of them around the blogland to get into the details.
And last, my Swiss Cheese Scarf. Appropriate name, non? This is probably the easiest scarf that one can make and I chose to knit from stash. I wanted a light and airy scarf that has enough texture to stand out, yet be simple enough that I can just sit down and knit without having to worry about patterns. Light and airy? Check. I will use laceweight merino. Simple? Check. Nothing complicating about binding off certain number of stitches and casting back on. Results? Mighty long to make, but mighty pleased.
Materials: School Products Lace-weight Merino. Color 7. Gifted by Joy.
Needles: Sz 3.
And there you have it. I'm in the process of knitting a Komi Hat right now too.. so expect an FO soon. The next time I blog won't be a year from now, that's for sure.
And oh, happy new year. It's been so long.
