Just because I’m typing it, it will be 100 by the end of the week. I know it. But things have finally cooled off a bit. That makes me want to start playing with yarn again, and in fact, I picked up my knitting needles last week. Last year I started on a couple of projects to try and teach myself how to knit – the most successful being the honey cowl. And I’ve made some progress on it which is building my confidence.
And then a friend posted her list of things to knit for the winter. Oh my. I felt really inspired and went and revisited my yarn pinterest board. Isn’t this top beautiful? Maybe someday my knitting skills will be up to par.
Something simpler? That yarn looks really fine which makes me nervous. But how cute are those color blocked arm warmers.
Can you even stand those scallops? I love those colors.
And I would love to make a little something for the boy. This sweater totally caught my eye to the point that I went out and bought some yarn for it. I’ve been practicing my stitches on the fingerling weight yarn and I’m not very good with such a fine weight. Yet. More practice is needed. And the pattern is in Dannish. . . but with the power of Google translate . . . and my friend to help me knit through, you may see something that looks like a garment come off my needles, hoping by the end of the year.
Of course, I can’t get away without doing some crochet. I bought the pattern for these leg warmers awhile back and will be hooking them up soon. They look pretty simple to do and I’m looking forward to having some fun colors peeking out of my boot tops!
What are you working on if you knit or crochet?
