I feel like I am constantly knitting. There is always several projects on the go here. Generally I don’t blog about the basic knits – like hats and gators and mittens that are stock knitting fodder this time of year – there are more of those that you could shake a stick at. I’m constantly knitting hats for the husband-squatter, and gators for the midgets.
Last week though these two none-hat-nor-gator knits were finished – the vest in cotton which has been sitting 3/4 done since um, May sometime? for the midget. And this new sweater all for ME which was started and finished in a matter of days.
It is the Shalom Sweater – I’ve just added arms.
Using the much celebrated (and officially my new go-to yarn) Cascade 220, this shade, ‘Silver Spruce Heather’, is more green than I would have liked, but still a nice, nice yarn. I have visions of maybe another Shalom in the wardrobe soon – maybe with a tweaking in the arm department, maybe with fewer buttons, possible in a mustard colourway? Or teal? Mmm.
So two down and several more to go :: a vest for the man, some leg warmers, a cardigan (or two) for the babes and a fun knit involving scraps. And I’m sure I’ll add to the pile as the days roll by…
