Two projects that have been worked on this past week:
This is really a fun project that doesn’t get boring at all. I think everyone who has made this immediately wants to make another one. I’m using Cephalapod Bugga yarn for the gold and brown, which is classed as sport weight, and Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere for the green, which is classed as fingering weight.
The pattern is Miss Grace and it’s a free pattern. If you might want to make it, you can download the pattern and read through it, watch Very Pink’s video tutorial. The pattern, at first glance, appears frustrating and difficult, but once I managed to move my brain outside the proverbial traditional way of doing things, it’s so simple and the next “form” is so fun to make that I have a hard time putting this project down. It’s actually a project I can knit while watching TV or visiting with almost no counting! And, it’s all knitting . . no purling until you get to the border. Gotta love no purling!
I have reds and blacks in Wollmeise fingering weight to make another but I’m trying hard to hold off til I get this one finished.
Because Miss Grace is getting big and I’m working off three skeins of yarn, I also have a sock project that I can take with me for car knitting.
I’m almost to the end of sock #1. These have been lingering unfinished for too long but they won’t see much action til Miss Grace is finished.
