admiring perusing my Ravelry projects page the other day and I realized that I have no in progress photos of any of my current projects. Shame on me! So, what’s on the needles at Carole Knits? Glad you asked.
I wanted to cast on for this sweater the minute I tried on Caro’s back at SPA. And I finally did a few weeks ago. The back is about 3/4 done at this point. The yarn is Peace Fleece and the pattern is very well written and easy to understand. I’m so glad I got over my fear of cables. You all were right, they really are fun! I’ve sort of lost my steam on this project since it’s gotten too warm to wear it, but I’ll plug away at it and be rewarded with a nice new sweater when the fall comes.
Because there are always socks. The yarn is Carole’s Eye Candy Friday in Daffodil in Mama E’s -C*EYE*BER Fiber Coordinates, dyed for me and gifted to me by none other than Mama-E. I love it! I didn’t expect it to stripe but I’m pleased that it’s happening. These will be on the plane with me tomorrow.
This shawl has been on my to-knit list forever and I’m so glad to have finally started it. The yarn is Judy’s Arequipa from Ball and Skein and I was originally going to use it for Twinings. But the variegations and the pattern weren’t a good match and I ditched that for Icarus and I’m glad I did. I’m almost finished with the last repeat of chart one and then it’s one to the edging charts. Woot!
So that’s what’s knitting here. What are you knitting today?
