Oh right! Knitting... WIPs...
1. Bird In Hand Mittens - These mittens are plagued with tension and gauge issues. I also dislike the braids... they just don't look right to me. I LOVE the colors I'm using though. So I'm stalled right now. I can't decide whether to trudge on or to rip back and start over. Hmmm.
Gathered Chocolate - I'm having gauge issues with this one too. I started a sleeve as a swatch on US7 but it's too tight. It took awhile to buy some US8, but I think I'm on the right track now.
Mingus Socks - Kinda complicated for a carry-along sock pattern so I might start a simple sock too. But I adore the yarn... Smooshy... it's awesome. And the color!!! Beautiful.
4. Print O' The Wave - I've been working on this one a lot lately. I'm halfway through the main body repeats. It's a nice relaxing knit since I have mostly memorized the pattern repeat. I only need to glance at the chart now.5. Thorpe for Tom - Eric's friend Tom expressed interest in my Swell ear flap hat and suggested a trade. He is a wood worker so I agreed. I'm hoping this turns out well. I'm using DK weight yarn doubled instead of chunky yarn. I seem to be getting gauge so I think it'll work out.
And one more from the weekend...
