I have next to nothing finished to show you. No lovely pictures. Sorry. But I have been knitting. As a matter of fact I have been re-knitting. My picot top socks that rock socks were done. But when I put them on there was a major problem. The second sock gauge was totally off. I mean an inch difference at the picot hem top. The darn thing wouldn’t even stay on my leg. SO I am re-knitting it ripping from the toe of the finished second sock. It is interesting to knit while un-knitting something. The socks were so fast to make that I didn’t really hesitate to knit the second sock again.
I pulled out the Cycling Aran sweater for George and finished the back last night. I got most of it done at knit group (this week held at the Coffee Cat although a little crowded it was an awesome group last night!) and then finished it after getting home. I also cast on for the first sleeve but only got the first inch done. I would love, love love to get this one done this next week so my hubby can actually have a new sweater for the winter. I am also going to line the collar with some alpaca or cashmere to make it much more soft on the neck.
I also have some Top of the Lamb sport weight yarn in stone and charcoal to make George a ski sweater for this winter. I haven’t decided on a pattern/ fair isle chart yet but I will do that when I am ready to cast on. That is, after I finish the Jefferson sweater. I am feeling the need for some cabling so that sweater is the perfect fix. Of course I considered casting on for something new in an aran pattern to alleviate the want for an aran fix but I should probably just finish something I have started, dontcha think?
I am really feeling the need for some knee socks. I have the yarn to make Meg Swansen’s socks out of the last vogue knitting
