Projects, projects, projects
I always have at least a dozen different projects going at one time. I guess I am easily bored. The Pelerine is one of the active projects. It is coming along very quickly which is good because it is getting chilly here now.
I put it on 2 needles for the photo. I am moving it to a longer needle as the stitches were getting very crowded. I am really looking forward to wearing it.
I have also been working on a sweater for my 4yo son. The pattern is the Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Oh, did I tell you that I really enjoy her patterns? This is the 3rd sweater I have made from the pattern in the past 2 months. I am going to teach a class how to make them in September. It is a really fun sweater knit all in one piece.
I asked my little guy what color he wanted the sweater to be. "Orange" was his answer. This is called carrot which is a muted orange color. I think he really wanted a brighter orange but this one is easier for me to work with and he seemed okay with it. I will have to make the sleeves longer I am sure as he is a tall boy.
On Monday I went to our Prayer Shawl Ministry meeting. I recently delivered my last shawl to a friend who was having surgery so I needed a new project. I saw this Simply Soft pattern on the Caron web site a week ago and a friend offered to send me the yarn. It arrived just in time for the meeting. It is a beautiful lacey pattern. http://www.caron.com/projects/ss/simply_shawl.html
I also am working on 2 washcloths for an exchange. These are the first 2 out of 7 that I need to get mailed by October 31. Better knit faster!
Like I said, these are some of the active projects. There are lots more waiting to be lovingly tended to and more yet that I would like to make. There are always new ideas that I need to work on for the classes that I teach at the Rose Tree Fiber Shop and things that I want to make for my family. Then there are all of the worthy charities that I would like to knit and crochet for...
Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
