Well, I am wealthy beyond measure with my family, our home, and our life, but in the knitting FO department, I’m tapped out! Nothing soon to come down the pipes. No FO’s on the horizon. Not even a spark waiting to ignite. It’s a FO wasteland, I tell ya.
Projects? We got your projects! Overflowing with projects, just nothing approaching the FO stage. Autumn Sweater is halfway through the body. Connor’s Redo Blanket is maybe 24% done. Miss Dashwood isn’t dashing off anytime soon, only her bottom is covered. Eke! Yes, the hat could have been finished at any point on Thursday, but we are prepping for a camping trip, and who needs to see another hat FO? After 29 so far this year, I am thinking hats are going to the back burner for a bit.
So, what to share with you today? Hey, I guess I did finish something. I finished winding all the yarn for Autumn Sweater! See……
As I took the 2nd shot I noticed something.
Yup, my color choices are never far from my norm.
So, do you have a color scheme? Is there a color on the spectrum that all your friends say….”That’s a (insert your name here) color”. Mine do. Any green in between the lower right shade and the upper left in the yarn cake photo is MY color! You can’t have it, I called dibs! The lighter green shade covers about 30% of the walls in our home, the burgundy is in the kitchen and on my door, and the gold covers 30%. It truly is a fall inspired home.
Oh wait, I did finish something else. I finished the border on Miss Dashwood!! Actually, I just skipped the last 3 repeats. Considering the border already measured 66″ and the finished measurement on the pattern says 65″, I was good. And don’t be surprised if you recognize the stitch pattern, it’s the reverse of Sagano. Same look, but at least this one is being knit from the front side, not the purl side, so no (P3tog, P3)!!!!
The texture is a little different, but still creating the defined lines.
