This week has been a week of editing, writing, knitting and casting off. The green sample, I’ve been showing glimpses off for the last few weeks, is off the needles. I’ve finished writing the last parts of the pattern, and this week it shall wing its way to my tech editor before heading for testing.
The last section of Simones Wedding Shawl is finished and the last few garter stitch stripe section has been started. I’m expecting it off the needles later today. Both this and the above shawl will need blocking this week, so proper shots hopefully next week of this at least, not the top one yet 😀
My Weasley Rib socks are my FO for this week and were off the needles last Sunday, they have since been blocked and are now ready to wear.
We all know the first rule of sock knitting and that is; when you cast off a pair you must cast on a pair straight away. I had these ends of the Aquaman Sucks yarn left, added to that is some West Yorkshire Spinners yarn in Butterscotch that I had left over from a pair of socks last year, and I think I may very well have enough for another pair of Sundae Socks. These I am calling my Tutti Fruitti socks. I am once again knitting these concurrently, I found that really worked for me with the Weasley Rib socks and I liked having a pair of socks cast off together.
Because of so many cast offs over this weekend, next week, all week will be all about cast ons! Exciting! I love a good bout of cast ons and can’t wait to get started on them, they are all ready to go in their project bags, but more on those next week.
There have been a few acquisitions this week but I’ve not snapped a picture of those yet, perhaps this coming week.
