Socks, Hats, and Sweater

A lot of things are going on the needles, but not many are coming off.

I am busily working on socks for the husband. He was in the yarn store with me one day and some yarn caught his eye (hahaha). So I am making him some vanilla socks with what will be an afterthought heel. Yarn: Cascade Heritage Prints Color 35

I am still working on the Kopekapeka Hat. I ran out of yarn, therefore, this project is in hibernation until I can get back to Michael’s. I attempted to go Saturday yet, the line was 30 people deep (no exaggeration). I immediately walked out the door. I love yarn, but not that much. Yarn: Patons Classic Wool in Royal Purple

Instead I went to my LYS to look for yarn for a new project. I purchased some Rowan Hemp Tweed in Almond to make an infant hat for a friend. I have to admit that colorwork is not my favorite. It makes me into a SUPER big perfectionist. The contrast between the colors really makes tension differences stand out.  I get so bothered if even one stitch is looking wonky. Hopefully, I can keep my editing eye in check with this one.

The new sweater I am working on is the Rosina Sweater. I am in love with this burgundy color I picked out. It is the epitome of fall colors. Rosina is being crafted on some tiny needles (US Size 2). I love the tight stitches, but this project might take me a long while. Yarn: Cascade 220 Fingering in Burgundy 


Until Next Time
