Knitting and Reading
Ginny is hosting the Yarn Along again. She is posting the first Wednesday of each month and I am happy to join in and am looking forward to seeing what others are knitting and reading.
I am knitting Emily a sweater, at her request. She wanted it pink and purple and I am writing up the pattern as I go. I already have some revisions for the next one. The yarn is knit picks Wool of the Andes.
The second photo is of socks for Mike - it is a free pattern from Purl Soho. I am using Westcountry Tweed Yarn from Blacker Yarns. These are the first of my #HandmadeHoliday2018.
The last picture is my progress on the Sleepy Kitten from the no. 4 edition of Making. I made a couple of mistakes already but I am also excited to have learned a new technique - as the legs, tail and arms are knit on - pretty neat. The kitten is a Valentines Day gift for Emily. The yarn is a new wool line from Knit Picks called Simply Wool Worsted and is described as an Eco Wool and all the colors are undyed.
Well we are expecting a snow storm today! It will be nice as there really is very little snow on the ground.
