Over the last week or so I’ve finished up 2 projects that are NQR (non quilt related). Both are for me, one has a definite purpose, one is still undetermined.
Last winter I started knitting a pair of socks in a fuschia/purple/green yarn. Then the weather warmed up and I lost interest, until the other day and we got cool. I finished them yesterday and finally, after 4 pairs of socks, have my sizing right!!! Apparently I knit with really loose tension and have had to drop to a size 1 needle….and could probably still drop to a size 0 and have an even better fit!
Until now, when I knit socks, I’ve been using DPNs (double pointed needles), but doing one sock at a time means I have to write down the # of rows (and which row I left off on) on little slips of paper. So I have ordered a set of circular needles to go with my newest sock book that I purchased (Two at a Time Socks). I’m looking forward to trying that and see if it’s more confusing, or less confusing for me.
Until the needles get here, I have a luscious ball of hand-dyed yellow rayon yarn to knit into a special project for a special person. Hey, you KNEW if it was YELLOW it wasn’t for ME! LOL
The other project, whose eventual usage has yet to be determined? Well, it’s a woven ????????? Hmmm, too short and stiff for a scarf? But I finished it with fringe like a scarf. Maybe a table topper scarf? Or ??????? I don’t know what it will be, but I love it!! Love the texture, love the color, love the feel of it so for now it is draped over my office chair where I can see it daily.
