And The Grays Have It
Last time I said I would get into my ongoing projects and I think that I have all of them. I recently moved and well have not finished organizing….well anything. Of course that has not stopped me from casting on a new project or 3.
We will first start with the pretty much finished project of a cowl that is for my adopted soldiers. his is not a fun color; but, I am restricted on what I can send to them and have it be useful. It is made out of Patons Classic wool in a color I don’t remember. It is some sort of warm gray. This is a pattern I came up with and well haven’t written down anywhere yet. I made it long enough to cover the neck to the ears/nose. To go with the cowl there are fingerless gloves that are not pictured. I have about a million of ends to weave in and a wash before I can call this finished.
I am seeing a theme here. A while ago I cast on twisted flowers socks by Cookie A in a warm gray patons sock yarn. I am a bit further down than this. Actually almost through the leg which was two repeats of the pattern shown. So far I love knitting them. I only see one issue and that is the leg. I have not tried them on but they might not fit around my calves. If that is the case then I will need to find homes for them. I might end up making the foot a little shorter and gift them to my sister. This will be decided once I am on the foot.
Now I wont bore you with all of my WIPs. There are quite a few blankets I have started and are in time out so they have not gotten photographed. I have at least 3 baby blankets. Don’t ask me about them because it has been a while that I would not be able to tell you much. Two of them are crocheted and the third is knit and quite cabley. I like the pattern I was quite tired of the color. I have my wonderful sock yarn mitered square blanket that I will be working on for ever. A few blankets that I don’t think I will ever finish. I am working on a crocheted blanket that is not technically mine. My supervisor’s grandmother passed away a year or so ago. Since I knit and crochet her stash of 70’s acrylic and half-finished projects were given to me. I re-purposed a granny square blanket that she started but did not have enough yarn to finish into a large cowl. Of course I did not get a photo of it. I have been working on and off on a blue crocheted blanket.
My hexiflat worsted weight is slow and coming. I have not taken a new photo because I have a bunch of hexiflats that need to be added to it.
I also began unpacking my yarn! I have an “extra” closet in my hallway where I decided it would be great to store my yarn. I have picked up a bunch of the fabric boxes and well decided that I need a few more. I think I need to reinforce the shelves before I add anymore books.
