I finished the hats last week too soon for the Stranded Colorwork Knitalong, by a couple of days. But what the heck — I’m in for another round. I don’t know yet what I will knit for it, but I picked up some yarn and I think I’ll design something myself. Maybe mittens. Stay tuned. I am waiting for inspiration to strike.
I’m also working on a project I call “Baby Eleanor”… a scarf version of the Lady Eleanor throw from Scarf Style. Yeah, everyone’s knitting that. It’s this years Clapotis. But it’s just so darned pretty. I’m using Patons SWS, which is really lovely stuff — but I think it’s rather a pain to knit with, as it is way too splitty. But it’s so pretty it will be worth it. This is an example of Lady Eleanor in the same yarn and color that I am using, but it’s twice as wide as mine will probably be. (So far it looks like it will be about 9 or 10 inches wide unblocked, probably 11 inches blocked.) I only have two skeins of the yarn so I suppose I will have to buy more at some point.
And I have another pair of socks going, because my feet need more warm socks.
