WIP – Leaf

I got my Ravelry invite a few days ago and have gone over to the dark side. Fear me and my mad knitting skilz.

Well, at least it got me to pull two of my WIPs out and get started on them again. Ms. Marigold is going well, although I fear it’s going to be too small. Bit early to tell, but I may need to frog it. The Fitted Leaf Cardigan is almost done, although I fear it’s going to be too large. Not too late to tell, but too lazy to care. I think it’s my fault anyway, as I picked a cotton over angora and the cotton, no suprise, is stretchy. Next project though, I fully expect to be just right.


Still need to do all the finishing and add the icord and dangly leafy bits. I’m afraid I’ve lost interest again already; it’s just so much stockinette. Fortunately, I have a little helper.

I’m trying to get out of the knitting rut by selecting a few more complicated patterns. And no more cotton…my poor hands are being cut by the fibers. I’ve been browsing for sock yarn (why does Posh Yarns always do their sales on a Sunday…they’re inevitably sold out before I get home) and have picked out Craftaholics Spring Grass Socks as my first pair to try. I’ve spent the past two nights attempting different toe techniques in bed (get your mind out of the gutter, Susan).

I’m probably the last knitter in the universe to make Clapotis, but I’m starting one for my friend Erin, who is exchanging one of her gorgeous paintings for a Parisian scarf of her very own.

So, watch this space. Non-cotton things to come.
