I am beginning to get a stash of leftover sock yarn and was enthralled with Wendy Johnson’s Leftovers Cowl. I favor purples, greens, and turquoise and here is the progress so far.
I didn’t make the cowl as wide as she did as I only cast on 122 stitches but I love the sense of accomplishment at having finished another repeat of a certain design. Someone asked me when I expect to be done with it and I hope to be wearing it this fall.
I usually have two projects going at once because sometimes I need something that is simpler to knit depending upon the situation.
I’m working on a new fair isle hat design since my husband asked for another hat. I figured I could accomplish two things at once! Even though it is not a gift, I’m still pushing to get it done. It’s easier for me to do fair isle when it’s not noisy so over the course of the next few days, I envision family and noise.
Here is a sneak peek. My design includes a Latvian braid of sorts. I hear it’s also called the Herringbone stitch.
Well, Merry Christmas to my blog readers and I hope you enjoy the holiday and remember the REAL reason for the season.
