I finished some things and I had to start more.
This is that Handspun self striping 3 ply (that is not Navajo/Chain ply). It’s my false start. I finished the leg of it in pattern and realized that while the pattern looked good in the book, it looks horrid with this yarn. Ripped. I’ll probably end up doing a plain sock.
After the unceremonious frogging I decided it was finally time to start Leisl. In the back of my mind I wondered if I could finish it in time for my TNNA trip. The answer is yes if I focused on it. I did this the first evening
And then I haven’t picked it up. TNNA is still a week away so it is possible in knitting terms but I keep wanting to spin more than knit so that makes a finish much less likely. We’ll see if my desire to have a new sweater will win out.
But not to be left out a sock had to be cast on again.
I’m using Spunky Eclectic Shine in “Tequila Sunrise” and I’m doing a version of my Swirly O pattern from The Knitter’s Book of Yarn. I say a version of that because that pattern is for sport weight yarn and I’m using fingering weight. I rarely wear thin socks but I have a couple pairs of shoes that neglected in the winter because socks don’t fit under them. I’m all about making the shoes happy.
