It seems I’ve been a little MIA for a while! I’ve been busy with life stuff, but I have been knitting.
I’ve been working on the Nine-to-Five sock:
I really like the pattern and I’m enjoying working with this yarn (Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids). I’m using the Knit Picks scok DPN’s and I like them a lot! They’re 6" long and these are the US 0’s I bought. I also have a pair of US 1’s. I think they’re my new favorites. I like the shorter length a lot better than the longer Susan Bates ones I was using and I find that I like the metal ones over bamboo for sock knitting.
My newest project is the Lady Eleanore Stole from Scarf Style.
I love how the Noro is working up in this pattern. It’s also given me a chance to practice knitting backwards. This works great when working on entrelac so you don’t have to turn your work constantly. This is the same Noro yarn I was using for the top down cardigan. I’m enjoying this project a lot!
These are really the only two knitting projects I’m working on right now. Of course there are other things on the needles, but these ones sit by my chair and get workedo n the most right now. I have some new yarn that I want to show off, but I haven’t taken pictures yet. I’ll be sure to show them soon, though!
