Although I have projects on the needles that desperately need to be finished, I am casting on another. Let me go through everything for you so you get an idea:
- Beatnik - Halfway-ish through the back panel, that’s all I’ve done. Cables are so hard and so many that I need to sit down and dedicate a month to this project alone!!
- Ellington Socks - I think these poor things have been sat unfinished for such a long time! I have one sock done, although I’m not happy with the toe so I will have to go back and fix that. Second one is cast on to the ribbing, but again, fiddly cables mean that I have put it off for a long time (can you see a pattern emerge?!).
- Paper Dolls sweater - I am going to frog this. The fact that I chose Wollmeise to knit it in meant I don’t have enough Natur to finish it, and plus with the MILLION stitches and tiny needles, I lost love for it ages ago.
- Stockholm Scarf - I cast on another of these since I wear the first so much. I’m just being really slow with knitting it. I’m not excited to knit it because I already have one, and made 2 already, although I know I will get a lot of wear out of them! Should be a quick finish if I can spend a few days on it.
So that is a bit of a projects update. Upon finding said box of Wollmeise, I set out to find some patterns for some of it.
I have a skein of Kornblume which I have just caked, I SERIOUSLY need a new balls winder, mine is on the verge of death and is refusing to work properly, they are £35 for a Royal one though, not the crappy one I got off eBay.
Anyways, I digress, 100% Kornblume is going to be a Lady of the Blue Forest lace shawl. It’s been a while since I had to sit down with a chart and properly think about what I am doing. It also uses 1 ball of 100% so I can cross it off my list!
I’m off to make some tea and cast on!
