This is how the last week has felt. I have knitting mojo, but it has been all over the place. Knitting begins on one thing, then I am easily bored so I move on to another. Maybe it's the summer or maybe I am just going though another round of startitis. Whatever it is, I wish it would stop. Thankfully it stopped long enough for me to finish my pinky socks.
These socks were a fun knit. Nice and simple with a wonderful texture. The more socks I knit, the more I discover about my likes and dislikes of patterns. I realize I gravitate towards simple texture more than complicated twists, cables, and lace.
Pattern: Simple Textured Sock
- Yarn: Pagewood Farms Yukon
- needles: 1.5
Yeah to finished socks! A friend and I were talking about our love of knitting socks and how we do not feel complete without at least one pair on the needles. For a while I only had one pair on, now I have three. One of them is a test knit for the above mentioned friend, so I can't show you yet.
See...more texture. :) The pattern is from this book and the yarn is Socks that Rock in Grimms Willow Wren.
And these socks are for a KAL for this group. I don't usually participate in KAL too often, because for some reason it stresses me out. The challenge for this one, is to knit a pattern that is not vanilla using a self striping yarn. The pattern is Sunday Swing Socks and the yarn is KnitPicks Felici in Building Blocks.
On to things other than socks. Yes there are things other than socks. heh. I have two shawls on the needles. Lyrica Euterpe is so close to be done it's scary, but I can't seem to muster the will to finish. Hopefully this weekend (finger's crossed).
I know I mentioned it before, but this yarn is just heavenly.
Whew...you still with me? That is a lot of projects and rights about now you are probably wanting to shake me and say, "What is wrong with you?". I know I told you start..stop..start. It has been the story of Andi lately. Hopefully next time you visit me I will have some of the above items finished. Next time you visit I will have some wonderful inspriations from around blogland and I am telling you there are some amazing projects out there that you all have been working on!
I will leave you will a song and hope that you have a brilliant rest of your weekend.
