The holiday is over and now I can reveal the stealth knitting project that I’d been working on for Hillarey.
Druid Mittens pattern by BrooklynTweed
Knit in Berroco Ultra Fine Alpaca
DPN’s 2.5mm (Knit Picks Harmony Wood)
As a hoot I joined the Seasons of Lace, Winter of Lace knitting group. I know I’m going to be knitting lace anyway. I bow to the addiction – no fighting it. It wins. I gotta knit lace.
Being a dyed-in-the-wool Pagan I decided to celebrate the Solstice by casting on a new/old pattern. Ozark Autumn by Kay Meadors knit this time using a lace weight Malabrigo, dyed by Kay, in reds and greens. I’m adding green beads for a bit of twinkle. It’s much better in person. Not a great photo but everyone knows I’m not the photographer in the family.
I’m also back on the Fiore di Melazana by Anne Hanson. This is a great pattern and I’m completely in love with the yarn! It’s Tupelo Honey Whisper Merino by Woolen Rabbit. The center panel is about finished. Will post more photos soon.
And lastly – I cast on socks. I wouldn’t say I’m the only sock knitter yet to make a pair of Monkey socks by Cookie A because I know for a fact my sister hasn’t either. The yarn of choice? Socks That Rock in colorway Tide Pool. They’re very busy – call ’em Funky Monkeys.
