And . . .
I haven’t finished the Musselburgh Hat yet but I have started the decreases. I know, my progress on this is pathetic. But it’s because of the kitties. And maybe also Christmas baking.
The Santa Hat is in the same place (literally, on a high shelf in my kitchen) as it was a week ago. This was never something I planned on finishing for this year, I just want to wear it in my town’s Christmas parade next year so there’s no rush.
Once I finish the Musselburgh Hat I suspect I will start another one as I have another skein of Gauge Dyeworks in the color Colourwheel.
I’m also starting to think about casting on a bigger project. Perhaps next week when I’m home for Christmas break or perhaps on January 1st. Whenever I do start, I’m fairly certain it will be the Daytripper Cardigan. I bought the yarn for this in Iceland at the oh-so-impressive Handknitting Association of Iceland. It’s Lopi, of course, and I chose colors that remind me of Iceland: grey for the lava fields, green for the summer mountains, ice blue for the ocean, deep blue and purple for the sky. It’s a project I’m truly looking forward to both working on and, ultimately, wearing.
And that’s my knitting update for this week. What are you knitting right now?
