I don’t know how it happened but I’ve currently got four projects on my needles. I like to switch between different projects based on what the pattern requires of me. So here’s a look at what I’m currently working on right now.
After I separated for sleeves I put this one back in my project bag. It’s temporarily on hold so I could start my next test knit.
Rumo Test Knit
I’m working on a garter stitch open cardigan test knit. I decided to go with this yummy black cherry color Berroco Vintage yarn I had in my stash. I also decided to use this test knit to try out square needles.
I heard that square needles can be easier on the joints and I occassionaly get soreness in my right wrist due to a little cyst I’ve had for years. So I’m always open to trying something new. I feel like I don’t get fatigued as quickly using these but I’ll keep going and see how I feel about them. They are on sale through early September on KnitPicks, so I may order myself the set.
And with all that talk about rainbows I decided to start a rainbow Askews Me Shawl for myself. Brioche knitting it like mindless knitting to me now so after doing tons of garter stitch on my test knit I like a little break from that and brioche is a great palette cleanser. I asked my Mom what she wanted me to knit her this year and she said she wouldn’t mind a shawl/wrap so I’ve got to figure out what color combo and pattern I want to make for her, I have a feeling it will be something brioche too. And my fourth project? That’s still my squares blanket. I toss that in my purse and carry it with me and work on it bit by bit.
This has been a great week, I visited friends, museums, snuggled dogs, knit and really recharged myself. Next week I start prepping for school!
