October Wrap-Up

Published by at 6:31 pm under monthly wrap-up

October was a work in progress.

The Big Sock

(That’s me, knitting on the Big Sock at Rhinebeck.)

I finished one, count ’em, one project:
Autumn Socks
Autumn Socks

But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t knitting my little heart out in between Rhinebeck’s moments of sheer awesome. On my needles currently are living:
-one half-completed pair of Jaywalkers
-one half-completed Ivy sweater
-one ready to de-hibernate February Lady sweater
-one half-completed set of armwarmers in Atacama, to match a cowl

And that’s not counting the Christmas presents I am trying to crank out (knit early, knit often?).

And then there’s that little designing thing. I’ve been hard at work on a new pattern — see, I have an event to go to right after Christmas so I wanted something nice to wear, and I think maybe other people might like a nice warm squishy thing for holiday events. So I’ve been working on that, and it’s currently with a test knitter and I should have it ready by Thanksgiving. You can be sure it will be warm and squishy, because I knit it in Malabrigo:
Malabrigo Worsted in Verdes

Now I suppose I should get cracking on that to-do list, huh?
