I’m hearing from family and friends back home in New England who are enjoying 70 degree weather. Here in Valladolid it’s still wicked cold! This week I finished my gloves and I’ve been wearing them. The warmer days of March are still far away for me, but at least I get to enjoy my knitwear for a little longer, right?
Of course, I have a picture of my blue gloves:
They’re really comfortable and I really like the color a ton.
It seems that knitting a pair of gloves was not enough to procrastinate on the sleeves for my sweater (I guess now it isn’t knitting itself!), so I’ve casted on a pair of socks. It’s the famous (and free) “Owlie Socks” pattern. Here’s my progress so far:
These are SO MUCH FUN TO KNIT OMG. I can’t stop knitting these socks, really. They’re going to look wonderful on my feet when I finish them. I needed a size larger than the largest written into the pattern but that really wasn’t difficult to modify at all thanks to the fact that the pattern charts are for exactly half a round (or the instep). I’m also getting some extreme satisfaction from the fact that the stitch pattern matches my stitch markers!
