I’ve decided this post will focus on my knitting, since my sewing and fiber art have been moving along nicely.
I’ve been working on my Arrowhead Cardigan in fits and starts for almost a year. This is a product knit for me. I can’t wait to wrap up in this Lettlopi coat in the cold of January. But each charted colorwork row is a different pattern, so there’s no muscle memory and repetition involved. That means I’m not enjoying the process very much. I think I will encourage myself to knit at least two rows every day. I’m trying these skein coats around the yarn to keep it in check.
Speaking of charts, here is the progress photo of my Cozy Autumn Socks (Rav link). Yep, procrastinating on the chart. This chart is more repetitive, though, so I might enjoy the knitting more, if I can break through the wall.
Here’s a plain sock that I am zooming along on. This colorway is called Sleepy Hollow from Fiber Optics and I’m in love with it. Knit knit knit knit knit.
I’ve started a Back Porch Shawl in Autumn colors. The yarn is Weekend Wool from Green Mountain Spinnery in Poppy, Lichen, and Pumpkin. This is a super easy garter stitch shawl, and I’m enjoying it. Good TV knitting.
This is my most recent DIY Autumn Advent project. These are the Jaywalker Socks (Rav link) and the yarn is from Turtlepurl. These would be an easier knit than the Cozy Autumn Socks. Do I have enough socks on the needles? Should I cast these on? Or should I stick to what I’ve started?
There are a few other projects languishing in their project bags. Celtic Myths Shawl is another every row is different cable chart. The Oa is a colorwork hoodie, although the chart is more repetitive so I might enjoy it. The Aurora Borealis Cowl can wait until the holidays. That’s all for items already cast on and in progress. (All links are to my Ravelry project pages.) Edited to add: I forgot to tell you I am at the point on my Hansel Hap where decreasing starts on the center square.
To people who don’t knit regularly, it looks like I churn out finished objects right and left. But in reality, some projects are in progress for months or even years. Then suddenly I finish several within a few weeks.
