Dream Knitting

I fell in love with the Baubles shawl pattern as soon as I saw the sneak preview of it!  The pattern immediately fell into my queue – AKA my dream knits.  This weekend I finally picked out the yarn, although I haven’t wound the yarn yet as I have so many on-going projects right now.  Those unfinished projects include writing up my next hat pattern and working out some issues that I am having with a toy I am designing.  In the meantime, I have decided to place the yarn in a pretty bowl where I often sit to knit.  Hopefully this will encourage me to finish up some projects.  For now, I am just enjoying looking at the yarn!

Sleep Knitting

The above picture shows exactly how tired I have been lately.  I actually put my knitting away with only about 30 stitches left in the row.  Mostly I was dropping more stitches than I was knitting because I kept drifting off mid-stitch!  My day job has been keeping me excessively busy for the past couple months.  It has recently gotten even busier with several days in row where I have worked 12+ hours.  Because of that, I have been making pretty slow progress on my knitting.

Finished Socks

I finished a thing…just in time for Spring!  Luckily Emma wears her hand knit sock much of the year.  These are just simple shorty socks made out of a durable yarn.  The yarn is Schachenmayr Regia Fluormania Color 07187.  I love how bright it is!  About three years ago, I used the same yarn to knit leg warmers and knee length sock for the girls.  The yarn holds up to rough wear.

WIPs

Atelier-cardigan

Atelier has received most of my attention this week when I have had time to knit.  This cardigan has so many cute details and I am very excited to see how it turns out.  I am about 6 cm from starting the pockets. I hope to at least get the pockets started by next weekend!

I have also finished the knitting on a new hat design!  Now to just polish up the pattern and get the tech editing complete.

Wishing everyone in the Northern Hemisphere a very happy first week of Spring!
