Friday Finish or Not

In this case, not. I haven’t finished anything since the hat I did last week. Maybe it’s because I am working on so many things at once? Could be. Or maybe it’s because I am working on things that just take longer to finish than a baby hat? No matter, I am enjoying the making, so that’s more important than finishes.

The Fallen Cloud shawl has now used up 2 skeins of the Suri Merino I am knitting with. Oh my, this stuff feels like a cloud!! So soft and airy. I am so ready to wrap up in it’s warmth. But that day is 4 skeins away. I am knitting until I use every bit of it! That’s also a goal for this year. Use the yarn I have wisely, no leftovers. This means pairing patterns and yarn to optimize the yardage I have on hand.

Another day, another yarn purchase! LOL. This is for CarGuy’s hat, he’s Diva’s Beau.

I stopped in at Serendipity Fibers to see what I could find for hats for Diva and CarGuy. She had a light selection due to a move happening soon. I definitely will try to get back to visit again. I am planning to use Fredrica’s Hat to show off the cables as best as possible in the black Liberty yarn. I could have bought some luscious Alpaca for Diva’s hat, but at $18.00 a skein I thought better. I would have had to buy 2 skeins! I just bought her a $36.00 mini skirt, no $36.00 hat on top of that!

So, what’s on your needles today? Sewing is on my agenda for later, sorry I don’t have any progress to show today!

    I finished one project this week but I started it a month ago. I wish I could finish reading books faster but I knit more than I read these days. I bet you finish something next week 🙂

      Yes, I am due a finish of some sort!

    The shawl is lovely!
    Today I’m hoping to cast on the second slip-stitch sock… I’ve been slacking lately!

      You slack? I highly doubt that. Me? Absolutely!!

    The shawl is making progress–it shows! Nice hat yarn when finished but working with black is tough!

      Thanks, I am still loving the knitting. I have made 2 hats with black Liberty Wool, you would think I would learn, right? > >

    Your Fallen Cloud is getting beautiful! Nice find on the yarn for Car Guy’s hat 🙂

      Thank you! I am still loving the knitting on Fallen, but I still have close to 4 skeins to knit!

        That will be a nice cozy wrap when you are done with it!

    I love that color and what I can of the design. The way you laid it out, it looks a little like a chili pepper. =)

      LOL! I thought the same thing! Thanks > >

    The problem with internet…I cannot reach out and touch things 🙂 I want to touch the beautiful little green wing in the first picture. It looks like it will be super cozy when you get finished.

    • chrisknits January 15, 2019 / 4:24 pm

      Believe me, with Suri Alpaca and Merino wool it is SERIOUSLY soft! At first I wasn’t sure what you were wanting to touch, LOL!!! > >
