What's on my needles Fri, June 27
Socks in progress. I'm almost at the back or the heel moment. My very favorite part of sock knitting, other than the leg, is that little short row turn of the heel. I just love doing this. Not there yet, but will be shortly.
The short row scarf is progressing nicely. This is such a delight to do.
Almost at the end of the 2nd ball. This is not going to be very long, but it will be wide and squooshy, so very comfy to cuddle up around my neck. I can't wait to see how it blocks out. All those garter raised portions will smooth out, I hope.
My charity scarf for Chabad House is getting there. I'm using the same technique on both this and the mitered scarf above, but look how different they look. This one is all garter stitch; the one above has a stockinette and garter pattern.
And a sweater that I didn't show last week. It's just mindless stockinette at this point. Yawn. The sleeves will be worked up in stockinette also, and then joined to work the yoke. The yoke will have stranded color work on it. I haven't knitted an Elizabeth Zimmerman sweater (other than the Baby Surprise Jacket) in a very long time. It does look small, but it's the right size (36" in circumference) for me.
And that's it. Well there are a couple more WIPs, but I'm not working on any of them, and may frog them.
