I'm fighting a fearful case of startitis here folks...
I'm blaming it on the weather (it's cold - I'm not complaining - but the cold weather makes me antsy).
I'm blaming on January (I'm always restless in January - probably the cold).
And I'm blaming it on SSS...
Not that SSS, the other SSS... second sleeve syndrome, which to me is worse than second sock syndrome (though looking at my WIP page.... maybe not.. I have a sock pair I started in April... the first one is done... the second one hasn't even been started. APRIL!!!)
I'm committed to knitting at least 8 rows a night on this one. That will still see me finish by the end of the month. And give me time to work on other things....
I cast on for another hat
really nice alpaca hat I made him a few years back, and has resorted to wearing the horrible acrylic one I made not long after I first started knitting (I could have sworn I threw it out... I hate that thing).
So I grabbed a leftover ball of Regia 6-ply from Sandpoint, and cast on. No real pattern - I cast on 128 stitches (the stitch count from the deer hat and knit some ribbing. I'll knit until it's long enough and then start decreasing. Dave is very particular in his hat tastes. It has to be plain. But it has to have a fold over part, and has to be just long enough to cover the tips of his ears (but not all of his ears) and has to be small and light enough to fold up and put in his pocket (so no bulky yarns). I swear he's like Goldilocks sometimes.
And when I'm not working on the hat, or the cardigan, I'm adding a pattern repeat to the Tiger Eye scarf. But even that isn't satisfying my needs....
I think I need to cast on for a shawl (let's not point out the fact that I have the Maple Leaf Shawl on the needles still). A lace shawl... and intense lace shawl.
Autumn Adagio Shawl
Quadratische Decke Shawl
Yes.. I need lace, and silk, and beads.... oooooh.... stay tuned!
