House of Snow & Frog
My restlessness is also affecting my knitting...I don't feel like working on anything I have started. The scarf for a friend is my travel project, I'm unhappy with the socks I have currently (Jaywalkers I think are going to be too small, the Coffeehouse socks are just annoying me), I'm not in the mood to start Green Gable, I need to wait until Friday to start Wicked (to buy the pattern), I'm tired of facecloths. Argh. Whine whine whine.
So I decided to do some frogging. Thus this:
I'm still in love with this yarn, it's the SWTC Pheonix that I bought almost a year ago,but I didn't like how it knitted up. It just wasn't the right pattern for the yarn...I can't put my finger on it. I think I would have run out of yarn anyway. So bye-bye. I started knitting a shrug out of it - I'm using the top part of the Tubey because I love how that fits - I just don't want to add the tube part. I need a new shrug (well, need it a bit of an exageration, I really want one) because it's very chilly in the store and my Leaf Shrug doesn't have long enough sleeves so it looks very silly over a long sleeved shirt - I wear it, but I need something more. So this should work. And here's a nice close-up of the yummy yarn - it's actually a much deeper royal blue. I started the SoyShurg today.
I also have a FO, something I worked on yesterday:
Started: January 16th
Completed: January 16th
Pattern: just a simple rolled brim hat
Yarn: Patons Soy Wool Stripes in brown - most of a skein
Needles: Size 8 16inch circ, size 8 dpts
Notes: I've forgotten how lovely and simple a rolled brim hat is too make, just very relaxing kniting round & round for awhile (not too long) then it turns into a sweet little hat. I realized it when I made the adorable hats for my nephews so I just had to make one for myself. And I love the SWS yarn, I think it's a perfect yarn for a simple hat - it makes lovely stripes & doesn't itch (much) when I wear it. I only wish I had made it a bit longer - it's about 10 inches and it would probably fit over my ears a bit better but it's not a big deal.
I'm still getting the itch to buy some yarn though...especially with $10 credit from Google. Could Malabrigo be mine?
Headed to my mom's for a couple of days...I hope everyone is safe & warm somewhere!
