But I'll come back from my crazy fashion spiral to tell you about what I've actually been working on (but I do have plans and yarn for a white cape. Stay tuned). I finally cast on for a project I've been talking about for months -- the Christmas stockings. I purchased this ebook on Ravelry because it is full of charts but they all follow a theme. The patterns are written for sport weight but I am knitting mine in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, which is a worsted weight wool. This first one is a dark blue and will eventually have white snowflakes as the motif.
|As always, I'm sorry for the bad quality photo. I know you are shocked to hear that it's raining again.|
So far I just have a toe, but that would be because I am still distracted by this.
Yes, Twigs and Willows is moving forward. I actually switched to a larger work bag so that I can take these sleeves with me. It has been so cold and there is talk of *gasp* snow in the forecast again, so I'm hoping that if I keep at it I may get a chance to enjoy it before the season changes for good.
