It has been a lousy week. We have had dreary days and rain. Today was suppose to be sunny, but the sun hardly came out. I hope tomorrow and next week is nicer.
I finally finished the Willow cowl. I had to rip it back because I didn’t have enough yarn to finish. I should have had 2 skeins of yarn, but the yarn I used I bought years ago and only had one skein. As a result, I only had 3 repeats of the lace section where the pattern had 5. I still like how it turned out and will make another one. I used a Size 5 needle with Socks that Rock lightweight yarn in the color Muddy Autumn Rainbow.
I worked on my Rainbow sock. It’s a 15 color rainbow striped yarn. I planned on doing the normal heel flap and then decided that I would waste too much yarn to get it to work out once I finished the heel. So, I am doing an afterthought heel. I am using a size 1 needle and the yarn is from Fab Funky Fibers.
I finally cast on for the Rikke hat. I am using Madelinetosh DK in the color plaid blanket with a size 4 and 7 needle. I really like the color.
I better work on these projects as I am already checking out new patterns to start knitting on. I already have a skein of yarn wound to start another sock.
