I thought I had this post all set to go yesterday . . . and…
Because it’s Thursday. And because I haven’t talked about knitting for a while. Today I’m sharing 3 things I’m committing to knitting over the next little while.
- Kaffe Fassett’s Stripe Scarves and Cowls. The photo above is from earlier in February but now I am thisclose to finishing my first Coins Cowl and I love it. The colors are great fun to play with and I’ve got an excellent stash of Rowan Felted Tweed to choose from. I’m pretty sure I’ll be casting on another one of these as soon as I finish this one.
- Nightshift by Andrea Mowry. I’ve been wanting to knit one of these ever since I saw Kym’s and a few weeks ago I ordered a fair amount of Malabrigo Rios from Loopy Ewe and WEBS. And then, as fate would have it, Vicki decided that a Knit A Long for this pattern is in order. Her timing couldn’t be better and I plan on figuring out which colors I want to use very soon. Maybe even this weekend!
- Fingerless mitts. I’m less clear on this in that I haven’t selected actual patterns I want to knit but I am going to commit to a Summer of Fingerless Mitts. For one, they are faster than socks. And for two, I sort of have a lot of handknit socks that I don’t even wear all that much. If I spend the summer knitting mitts I will have a great supply built up when the cold weather comes again.
What are you planning on knitting in the days, weeks, and months to come?
If you wrote a post for today I hope you will share the link below. Thanks for joining in this Thursday!
