I’m back to having three projects on the needles!
First is my Drops cardigan, which I’m knitting out of yarn hand dyed by my friend Alissa of Headknits. I started this over the summer and then set it aside for some Halloween knitting. At this point, the back and fronts are done and I am working on the collar piece. The sleeves are also started, but I wanted to get the collar done before I did any more on them. I am very happy with how this is turning out – can’t wait to wear it!!
Next is the last pair of gift mittens for this year – Flombre mitts for my Mom. These are to go with the Flombre hat I made her earlier this year as part of the Knitsonik colorwork KAL. I just have the barest start on the first mitten, but I feel like these are going to go somewhat quicker than the last two pairs I made. The pattern is pretty repetitive, so hopefully I can get these done this year.
And the last WIP is my Just Beachy shawl, which I started in August of 2021, but then – you guessed it – put it aside to do some Halloween knitting. I’m noticing a trend here. Maybe I need to not start big projects in later summer? Anyway, with only a little time spend figuring out where I left off, I’m back at it. So lesson learned to me – if you are going to put something aside, probably for some Halloween knitting (and I think we can assume that I am going to do that), at least take good notes about where you left off. It’s almost at the halfway point, so also hoping this can be done by the end of the month. I do love the yarn colors and it is a nifty patter, so I’m looking forward to wearing this one too 🙂
What are you working on right now, and how is it going?
