There’s not much knitting to speak of right now. I haven’t been able to knit all week because my wrists hurt any time I try to knit a few stitches. I am still trying to get the Noro cardigan to look okay with it’s too big arm holes, but I’m not entirely sure I like how it’s working out. Half of me says to rip the whole damn thing out. The other half says keep going, it will be fine. I’m somewhere in knitter’s denial at the moment with it, so it’s sitting in time out until I decide what to do.
I was working on toe-up socks, but I just didn’t like how they were turning out. Frogged it. I think I just like top down socks better. The yarn stripes, so I don’t want to do anything fancy with it and I think I’m just going to do a plain sock this time.
Of course, that is, if I can knit again sometime soon.
Wisp is done and I love it! Mohair itches my neck something terrible, though, so I can’t wear it as a scarf, but I can wear it as a wrap. Maybe I’ll gift it. I want to take some nice photos of it, but the weather has been crap the last two weeks. Hopefully there will be some sun this weekend and I can get some better photos of it so I can do my FO report on it already!
Right now I’m itching to do mittens. Stranded mittens. I think I might try the Anemoi Mittens from Eunny. When I can, anyhow.
Since I don’t know what to do with myself when I can’t knit, I’ve been reading cook books and other things about eating healthy. This was my previous hobby, before I was a knitter. I have found all sorts of good stuff that I want to try!
I haven’t been sewing because I’ve been waiting on getting a rotary cutter and mat. Sewing doesn’t seem to hurt my hands/wrists, so I figure while I’m taking a break from knitting, I’ll sew. Today I’m going to Jo Ann’s with my 50% coupon to get the set I was talking about in my previous post. Then I can do some more sewing. I don’t know what I’ll make just yet, but I have some fabric already. Might pick up more while I’m there and maybe line my felted bag I just made. Oh! I need interfacing, too, so I’ll look for some while I’m there.
That’s all that’s going on here – how’s things in your part of the world?
