Happy WIP-Wednesday (and happy First of May) everyone!
This week I’m indulging in selfish knitting. No presents to make. No samples to knit. No pressing deadlines. Perfect.
So what do I do? Yeah, why not cast on 2 projects at once, while I’m at it? That’s got to be an excellent idea! Hmmm…
Number one is another pair of socks. After the last sockish disaster I definitely needed a successful sock to compensate. Again I’ve been deciding on the pattern “on-the-go” – started with the toe and then decided which stitch pattern to plonk in there. I’ve chosen a lacy rib pattern, which – alas! – looks much better unstretched than stretched over my giant feet. But at least it’s a solid color yarn, so no ugly surprises there!
Number two is more of a long-term project. There’s been some Drops Lace yarn in heathered purple/violet lurking in my stash for months, while I wasn’t able to decide what to do with it. Shawl? Cardigan? Lacy summer sweater? Ah, choices…
Well, I did decide on a simple v-neck cardigan with tied closure and moderately wide sleeves – should be a perfect summer layering piece. Maybe I’ll finish it in time to wear it for the Me Made May.
Hand washing 4 cardigans, 2 pairs of leg-warmers, 3 knitted tees and 2 knitted dresses… hopefully now I’ll really make it through the month without falling off the wagon. 🙂
