Wandering Eye

I tried to be faithful, I really did.

After finishing my Lenore socks, I decided I needed to face my wips.  I only had 3, and I thought surely they would keep me entertained until after The Move.  I thought forcing myself to knit on these already started projects would do me some good and clear the decks for some inspired fall knitting.

It lasted 2 days.

I tried to focus on my Hamamelis shawl, I really did!  But the charts and lace don’t make for good relaxing in front of a movie knitting for me, and that’s really all I have room for right now.  The good news is, I did make some progress on it before going on a cast-on spree.  Another of my wips wasn’t so lucky…

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiip!

I have been vacillating over what to do with my long-languishing Hemlock Ring blanket for months.  I was pretty sure it wasn’t going to get finished, yet something wouldn’t allow me to rip out all that lovely knitting.  Then one day I was casually browsing projects on Ravelry when Sweetie noticed what I was looking at.  Those are cool, she said, looking at some colorwork mittens.  Knowing she likes owls, I said: I bet there’s something similar with owls on them.  A few clicks later we had decided on a pair of cabled owl mittens, and a matching owlet sweater for Peaceful Baby.  Suddenly I knew what all that Malabrigo would be good for, and it was very easy to rip out!

I also cast on a little something for PB to protect her tender knees during all the crawling she’s been doing.  This project is knitting up super fast, and I should be finished after the weekend. Have a good one!

  1. The Owlet sweater is so cute and comes in a huge range of sizes. I made one for my best friends’ baby last year, and it turned out so adorable. It was the first real garment I’d made, but it was super easy.
