I might have been a little too ambitious packing yarn-y related things for our trip to DC.
First, a pair of socks in stripey-yarn. I’m using String Theory Colorworks in Lacerta. I’m improvising a little pattern with a short-row heel and toe. As soon as I get the second sock done, I hope to share the pattern on Ravelry!
I’m working on another sock pattern too! I’m using KnitPicks Palette which comes in such a wide variety of colors. This fingering weight yarn is perfect for colorwork projects!
Next, a little stashbusting has been going on. Ready for the pins are these shawls. I brought them with me thinking I would find a way to improvise blocking a shawl. Ambitious indeed! I think these will have to wait a few weeks until we get home. I’ve used Madeline Tosh Sock in Jade and The Sanguine Gryphon in Skinny Bugga (Ruby Tailed Wasp). I can’t wait to see these shawls once I’ve had a chance to block them!
Lastly, I brought along these pretty yarns to knit the Color Affection Shawl. Kinda wishing I wound them before we left! From left to right, The Sanguine Gryphon Little Traveller in Lazy Mountain, GA; Madeline Tosh Sock in Cove and Madeline Tosh Sock in Denim. A completely stash bust project!
I can’t wait to get started but I should probably finish the socks and my second Holla Back Cardigan first!
What do you have on your pins and needles?
