I am having a bit of a yarn slump. I am just not overly excited about any project. I thought if I blogged about the projects I am currently working on, it would give me some incentive to make some progress.
Another cowl with the amazing Malabrigo yarn I am currently obsessed with. I have frogged this baby 3 times. It was two short, not drapey enough and just not right. I decided to double up the yarn and use a treble crochet in every stitch with this cowl. Now I am thinking it is too long.
And in this basket is project number 2. I am attempting to make the sweater below in alpaca yarn that is thicker than the yarn used in the picture. I am also attempting to make it using circular needles, which isn't really in the round, I just won't have seams as the back and sides are being knit all at the same time. So the progress is a lot slower and need I say, a lot less fun. I may decide to make it a vest and leave off the sleeves completely if I can't take it anymore.
I took this intended scarf off my loom yesterday. I really don't work on my loom unless it is cool out, don't ask me why I have no reason. I decided to finish this yesterday as I had only a couple more rows to complete. Well I should have stuck by my seasonal rules as after I took it off it shrank width wise, and elongated so that it looks like a really, really long belt. So I think this project is going right in the garbage. Believe me when I say it looks better in the picture than it is.
At least I got a very lovely surprise when I walked out side today with Max. One of my gardenia bushes has decided to surprise me with some late seasonal blooms. My kitchen table is so happy right now.
So what do you have on your needles or hook? I need some inspiration.
