It’s been a week for simple knitting here at the Waystation.
I’m more than half way through a pair of simple short socks, which I cast on for Sunday.
Mods: I didn’t like the heel, so I ripped it back — made the flap 2.25″ instead of 2.5″ and worked the heel cup from the Yarn Harlot’s Sock Recipe.
I’m using yarn leftover from an earlier pair of socks. If/when I run out of this yarn, I’ve got a coordinating color ready to go.
And then last night, despite the presence of said sock project, I cast on for a basic hat.
My husband (he recently informed me) is without winter head coverage, and this is not acceptable. So even though it’s forecasted to be 84° F tomorrow, I’m working on a hat, in black Lion Wool. So far so good!
Do you ever get the urge for simple knitting?
P.S.: Last week I posted photos of my Springling Shawlette, and several commenters asked me to say something when that pattern became available. Well, Cosy’s Springling Shawl pattern was released this week.
See the Fiber Arts Friday roundup at Wisdom Begins in Wonder to see what other people are crafting this week.
