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.
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!
