I’m so close to finishing a pair of socks! I’m knitting them out of the Tofusi that I bought a few weeks ago and I’m calling them my Raspberry socks. They are just simple stockinette socks but very interesting looking cause of the subtle stripping. I love them and am on the foot part of the second sock now. But I can’t bring myself to finish. It just seems so boring.
So I cast on for the Lucky wrap cardigan in the Stitch and Bitch Nation book. The lace pattern is simple and easy but as I do my research on the Net, knitters everywhere have had trouble finishing this piece. Not something I want to hear! So, I’m plugging along on the back.
I bought the pattern for Marilyn’s Not So Shrunken Cardigan from Knit and Tonic. It’s so cute and looks like a quick knit. I went to Common Threads in Encinitas on Thursday and picked up some Rowan Felted Tweed in a dark brown. Yummy. I also picked up some Cascade 220 to knit Arriann. The Cotton Fleece that I was going to knit it out of will become something else. I have no idea what yet but I’m sure inspiration will be just around the corner.
I will cast on for the MNSSC today but will not cast on for anything else until I finish a WIP. Here’s a list of everything.
- Ribbed Cardigan for Matt from the Summer 2006 IK in Cascade 220
- Raspberry socks in Tofusi
- Lucky Wrapin Petite Mandarin
- MNSSC in Rowan Felted Tweed
Ariann will be cast on as soon as I finish the Raspberry socks. I’ll try to finish the socks tonight and post a finished pic on the good ole blog tomorrow:)
