I feel like I haven’t been knitting a whole lot, but when I stopped to look at the projects I’ve been working on most, I’m surprised to see how far along I am. Yesterday I started The Bag from No Sheep For You. CraftyMands gave me 4 skeins of Hempathy for my birthday (which is Tuesday) and I immediately cast this on. I really love the two colors together and think it’s going to turn out great!
I’ve also been working on Wisp. I’m on repeat 17 already! It’s getting quite long and the pattern says to do 17 repeats, but I’m going to make this into a wrap/scarf instead and use up all the Kid Silk Haze I have. I really like how it’s coming out and at the rate I’m going, I’ll be done in no time.
I’ve been working on my Noro Cardigan off and on. Today I tried it on and I only have a few more inches before I’m done with the body! I thought I had much further to go, but like Wisp, it’s moving right along.
Soctoberfest is nearly upon us and I have no socks on the needles right now! I’m thinking I’m going to knit up a pair of socks from my leftover sock yarns. I have enough to make a sock out of each left over bit, so I figure this should work out good if I do the toe, heel, and cuff in a different color. It’s something I haven’t done before, but have been meaning to. No better time than now!
I’m having dinner with my family tonight to celebrate my birthday. I don’t know where we’re going, yet, but I’m sure it will be good. I don’t get to go out with them all together, including Nick and Nathaniel, that often, so that in itself is a perfect birthday gift!
Hope everyone’s having a good weekend :o)
