Quite a few months ago I finished some vanilla socks (my own personal in-my-head pattern) and I never bothered to photograph them or talk about them much. Here’s a pair I knit up with Rowan Fine Art hand painted sock yarn from the cuff down:
After that, I finished a pair of toe-up socks with some rainbow sock yarn I bought at Tiger and now I’m happy to report that I have my own toe-up pattern in my head, although I’m going to experiment with the heel in the future:
I’ve also finished a few other things but I didn’t bother to photograph them and I’ve already given them away. That’s life!
This is what I’ve been working on:
Yup, I’ve got all that on the needles. I’m still working on that blue cardigan. The back is almost finished. I blogged about this before, but the photo was yucky. Here’s a better detail on the stitch pattern:
This pattern is simply called “Cabled Cardigan” and it’s published by Hayfield. Of course, I’m not using the suggested yarn. I prefer something more wooly, so I’m using Drops Nepal.
I’ve also decided to invent a scarf with a traveling XO cable. The scarf will be reversible and maybe one day it will be a free pattern offered on my blog. Who knows? I’m having fun with this scarf. It’s very easy for me to knit.
Quite naturally, I’ve been making progress on those vanilla socks with little shell rib I talked about in my last post. I’m still on the first sock, but I’ve turned the heel, decreased the gusset, and now I’m just ticking away at the foot portion:
I think that’s a lot of knitting. Let’s see if I can keep my attention focused long enough on my cardigan to finish it. I love knitting it, but for some reason I just get distracted. Every time I consider casting on yet another thing I just sit on my hands for a moment and then work on my cardigan. That should do the trick, I think, at least for now… dun dun DUN!
