Time for a round up of what I've got on the go I think. I've been rather ignoring things other than socks for the last couple of weeks, so it's nice to get back to some other projects.
A few posts ago I mentioned I'd cast on for my next lace project. I know I said that Wing o' the Moth would be my next, but I don't have anything suitable in the amount I need, so I started something else, just to keep me going.
The tangled beginnings of Ene's Scarf from Scarf Style. I'm only 9 rows in and still on some enormous number of stitches. It's not quite TV knitting really. I'm using some 2 ply kid mohair from Touch Yarns that I got at Ally Pally this year. The colour is lighter than in the photo - green with short repeats of lavender throughout.
The baby knitting is still going.
The back of Lucky, from Rowan Pipsqueaks. I'm doing the 6-12 months size, using some Lamb's Pride Worsted. Now I'm back on this I'm confident it will get done soon - a nice quick knit and perfect knitting while we continue on our Deadwood watching marathon. We don't have cable or Sky or even Freeview, so haven't seen any of it before. I bought Toby the DVD set for his birthday and it's great - violent and curse laden - but great.
Waiting in the wings to take over the mantle of TV knitting once Lucky is done -
- the start of a slipover for my father. I'm using a pattern from the the Wensleydale Longwool Sheep Shop, along with their wool, which is just wonderful to knit with. My father is 6ft 4in tall, so you'll be seeing this one around for quite a while I think. I should really have done it in the round, but that thought didn't occur to me until I was pretty far in and I'm not going to start ripping now.
Would you believe it, that's all I have on the needles. Spot the glaring omission? Yes, after 'fessing up to the size of my sock yarn stash, I have no socks on the go at all. At this time of year most socks are destined to be Christmas presents, so I need to do a little planning over the next couple of days and work out how many pairs need to be done and for whom. Expect some socks back on the needles very soon...
