casting on

October 27, 2018

Since I wrote my last post, I've finished two projects and made good progress on two others. Because of this achievement I gave myself permission to start three new projects!

Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knits has a sale going on right now (but I don't know how long it's going to last) for 30% off her patterns with the code RAMBLEON. I've always wanted to knit one of her patterns so I purchased two lace yoked patterns, Whitehorse and Zweig. I bought the Rowan Cotton Cashmere just this morning for Whitehorse and for Zwieg I'll use the fingering weight yarn I bought in Quebec City for a one-color sweater. I'm also going to start a gift project; a dress called Summer Into Fall using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. I'd like to have it done the week or two before Thanksgiving.

I love starting a new project: printing the pattern, paring the yarn, choosing the needles and putting it all in it's own project basket. It might include a swatch or two. Perhaps. Here's a link to my Ravelry project pages if you want to take a gander at my works-in-progress. I also have many finished knits that need to be photographed--soon. I hope you have a great weekend that includes a little bit of knitting time.
