I currently have four projects on needles and in various stages of completion. I’m 75% finished with my Boneyard Shawl — love the colors, but not the yarn. Souk has been discontinued by Cascade Yarns and I think I know why — the chunky part of the yarn fibers separates even with little or no pressure on it — frustrating! But I think I’m going to love this shawl.
Next I’m working on the first of six surprise projects. More about this in several months!
Thirdly, I’m just starting a dress for granddaughter Finn in the Susan pattern. The pattern doesn’t seem too difficult even though it’s not written in a straight forward way. I’m not a fan of patterns that give information about how to do certain stitch patterns way before the stitch is called for in the pattern — confusing! But other than that, this dress is mostly stockinette stitch and is knit in four pieces.
Last, but certainly not least, I cast on yesterday for another pair of knitted knockers. I try to do a pair every month, so this is the August pair. I started them a bit early because this is the knitting that I’m taking today to the Mariner’s Stitch and Pitch! Barb from Knitted Knockers will have a booth there as well as many yarn vendors. Fun time for all!
