If September is all about getting back into routines, October is certainly about preparing for…
When last we met I was about to finish the alien illusion scarf. Alas, 6 rows from completing the sucker, I ran out of green yarn. Man alive, was I aggravated! I had planned on going to the yarn shop the next day to pick up another skein of green but, sadly, my mother-in-law passed away that morning. Needless to say, yarn shopping has not been a priority this past week. Once there’s an opportunity, though, I’m hot-footing it over to Middleboro to get what I need to finish Mr. Roswell.
In the meantime, I had to have something to knit so I cast on the Windy City scarf from Stitch ‘n Bitch. It went pretty quickly, although I ended up making it longer than the pattern stated. I still had leftover yarn so I made a pair of fingerless mitts to go with it – mismatched stripes and all. They came out cute except that the second one was shorter than the first because the yarn ran out. So, I frogged part of the first one and now they match. Sort of. It’s close enough, anyway.
Once I got those out of the way I picked up Dale’s socks and I’ve now finished the heel and gusset descreases and am making may way down the foot. Progress feels so great!
Pictures of the finished scarf and mitts tomorrow!
