Urg, maybe this will get me motivated -- I've been doing lots of reading about knitting, but not a lot of actual
mystery sock in Lanna Grossa.
Shorties for Hokiemom with Cascade 220 (color/design are a bit of a surprise, so can't share more). Almost done with these, a few more rows & I'll be splitting for the legs.
Acrylic (red heard & bernat baby acrylic held together) experimental "front loading" soaker for my sister. Just need to knit the other leg cuff.
To be cast on:
100PureWool "front loading" soaker for a customer.
HAT for my baby! He's about outgrown his hat the midwives made him! I'm thinking a simple cable or two on a top down beanie style hat in Lana Grossa Royal Tweed (I have a brown & a light blue; not sure which I'll use yet, though).
I've signed up for 2 sock swaps: the Harvest Sock Swap
, which is way cool; you knit one sock then send it & the leftover yarn & pattern to your pal & she knits her own 2nd sock! (If you join, mention me!
). And Sock Wars
, which is some sort of a speed contest where you "die" if you receive socks from your pal before you send yours, then the game progresses as you send your unfinished knitting to the person who "killed" you.
I have some handspun alpaca that will be knit up into a cabled sweater in a 5-6 size for ds1 (who wears a 4, lol), I think.
I'm wanting to knit a pair of Breeze
socks with some leftover Interlacements Tiny Toes
sock yarn, which I LOVE! It makes tiny stiped socks for toddlers & infants; I can't wait to see how it knits up in a big girl sock!
I *just* bought the yarn to make my sister's Starsky
; I'm using Paton's Shetland Chunky so she can machine wash it. This is my first grown-up sweater!
I'm also looking to knit a sugar & cream cotton baby sweater for my etsy shop to make the move into fall, I need a hat/mittens or gloves/scarf set for myself this winter, and I just (finally) bought Fitted Knits
, and I want to knit, umm, everything in there!
Okay, there's more, but I'm starting to overwhelm myself...
I need to finish those 2 soakers & finish up my Socktopia "clue." Then I'm casting on for Spencer's new hat; what kind of knitter mama am I that my baby doesn't have a proper hat to wear when we walk his big brother to preschool? Come to that, my other two don't have any hand knit hats from me, either!
