Ugh. The day? Not so great. Work was fine, and I got to start an awesome sample for the store! I’m making the cover “capecho” from Vogue Knitting, out of super yummy Blue Sky Worsted (different gauge than called for). I wanted to knit it (but not necessarily wear it myself), and megan wanted it for a store sample, so everybody wins. I started today and I have four pentagons done!
Hopefully I won’t get *too* sick of pentagons, because I also want to knit the Bubble Sweater from Knitting Nature. I’ve set my sights on some Manos in a colour that I’ve loved forever. Soon, soon.
The back of the organic cabled raglan is done, and the front is proceeding in quite a timely manner as well. After the front is done I’ll probably be taking a short break until more of the yarn comes in. The pattern is a bit hard on my hands – so many twists and cables (I cable without a needle, of course – it would be so tedious to use a cabled needle on a piece like this!). So it’s probably good to take a break.
I’ve been thinking of starting a new super-simple shawl, out of some Nature’s Palette that I bought awhile back. I have three each of two different blue shades, because I couldn’t decide between them! The question is, what shall I do? I’m already thinking just along the lines of cast on 3, inc at the beginning of each row in st st – but holding one strand of each colour together, or softly grading the colours by working 2 balls of dark, then alternating one ball of each colour, and ending with the last 2 balls?
Hm. Sounds like I’ve already made up my mind!
