It’s done!!! It’s over, well except for the blocking. Hell Shawl is out of my life as a knitting project. And I think the length will be OK once it’s blocked. Plan to take a photo of it laying on my Citron before I block and after. I am sure I will love having it to wear, but right now the thought of it makes me sick! I ended up with about 50 yards left, so no way I could have gotten more length out of it without possibly having the same issue of running short.
So, now I can start something new? Well, I shouldn’t since I still have three other items in progress. But I do need a baby sweater done by Dec. I need another baby sweater and a blanket done by Feb. College Girl would like a cowl and earmuff set in grey. I need to find some washable in a soft hand, she is not a sweater type. I got her a sherpa collar Levi trucker jacket in black last weekend, so it needs to blend with that. I could do an oyster color, just not sure I can match the sherpa.
I also want to start more for me, cause 2 items just isn’t enough. But maybe I should finish my cardi or the hat I am making for a friend? No way I will be finishing the other shawl anytime soon! I still have 8 skeins to go on it. But the itch to start a cowl for me is strong. I want to do the adaptation of Jared Flood’s striped scarf. I have a skein of Eco Duo that is to die for! And then two balls of Mochi Plus in a soft stripe like in the scarf I made last winter.
But then I also want to use some Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran in a deep brown. I only have 2 skeins, so need something that uses about 200 yards. There is a False Rib Cowl pattern I could use. No external link for it. Although I could start the Autumn Blush shawl using my Malabrigo Arroyo. It was yarn I purchased in Maine. Also need to figure out what to do with the Blue Ridge Bambi I picked up there too. Too much yarn, so much time wasted not knitting with it!
OK, to show I am now able to wear my hand knits I give you study in a football season. Of which the last few were freezing!
OK, I am done. Will show some FO photos this Friday, 2 hats and 1 shawl. Then maybe I will get back on track with the knitting. Fingers crossed. Um, no, that definitely won’t work.
