This weeks YOP post is a short one, I’ve not much progress to show on either the Branching Out Scarf, just a couple of repeats and a band or two of colour on the Slytherin scarf. It was warm and hot this week so I just couldn’t get the energy up to knit wollies lol.
This week we have the rain forecast again so no doubt I will be in a better frame of mind for knitting.
I have been thinking about next years list though and what I want to do and the main answer to this is SOCKS, I want to knit lots and lots of socks, so now I’m wondering do I dedicate the whole year to socks and if so whats a good amount to aim for and then should I work from a book or just a selection of patterns. I want to expand my plain garter stitch socks to ones with patterns and different stitches.
Who’d have thought back in January when I was facing my first little pair that I would now be contemplating a whole year of them !
I also want to leave some time free for patterns that grab my attention during the year also and the one other thing I want to knit is gloves and mittens, with and without fingers. These I’ve not done before but I figure I may as well challenge myself during the year, I like a challenge but is this challenging enough ???
Any thoughts and ideas are gratefully received especially from you expert sock knitters and indeed anyone who has tackled gloves.
Looking forward to going round on you all to see what you have all been up to this week.
