Jack’s blanket is sure to have arrived. I’ll need to call the sibling and find out.
In the meantime, knitting has been a bit slow, but on the uprise. Between beating illnesses and getting some profitable freelance work done, the time for knitting has been narrowed to movie-watching. Luckily, that was the Christmas gift of the year, so I had a lot of fodder.
A simple basketweave scarf, knit in Rowan Felted Tweed in Whisper.
It’s a scarf I started a long while ago that sort of got buried. It would be nice to finish it in time to wear before winter is gone for good.
A few other things have found their way to the needles, too. The second Jaywalker is on its way…
I even achieved, without much effort at all, an identical cast-on.
The Jaywalker is the current “travelling” project.
The current “this takes up every fibre of my being” is sock designing.
It currently consists of using the leftover yarn from my Monkey socks to swatch up some lace designs, while I fill up graph paper with concepts and designs.
There was an offer from a lovely yarner for free yarn to make your pattern with, if the pattern gets posted on her website for sale (split profits). I figure it’s yet another awesome way to get my designer foot in the door, and an excuse to design really nice socks. Which I’ve been meaning to do for awhile. The process will probably take a while, since I want these to look really cool. I have a few sketched-out ideas, we’ll see what works out!
