In my cup~ David's Tea Cream of Earl Grey.
How was your week? Mine was relatively peaceful, just how I like it. My attempts at slow knitting is continuing and I am really enjoying it. I have been making sure to take breaks and stretch as we talked about last week. Thank you for sharing all of your thoughts and suggestions on the importance of not causing unnecessary injuries from repetitive knitting. I enjoyed watching videos and trying techniques that you all recommended.
Pattern~ Simple Skyp Socks Yarn~ Blue Moon STR in the color Pink Granite
The result of focusing on one knit at a time has paid off in the form a finished socks! The squish is strong with these ones. These are actually going to a friend.
Pattern~ Traveling Cable Hat by Purl Soho Yarn~ Jenny Watson Pure Merino DK
As my reward for finishing the January socks, I cast on a hat. This hat is destined for the sister, because after all the blog is named My Sister's Knitter. ;)
Also I am planning my next project that is to be cast on only after completing the above hat (see I really am learning). My Sister's Knitter group on Raverly has begun a new KAL- Gift KAL/CAL. The theme is to knit, crochet, weave or spin from yarn, fiber or patterns that have been gifted to you. I know I have accumulated some truly wonderful gifts from friends and what better reason than a KAL to work on them?
I have changed my mind at least five times as to what I am going to knit, but think I have an idea pinned down now. I will post more about it next weekend.
Have the best day today and enjoy a song!
