It’s the 25th of January already! I thought I’d be on the ball and write a post to update about my ADVENTure :-) Hopefully I can link up with Kristyn later too when she puts her post up.
I’m trying my best to only knit one project at a time right now. I have a ton of things on the needles from last year and if I think about them all I’d get a bit overwhelmed, so they are tucked away safely in my ‘wip basket’ and as and when I feel like it, I’ll pull one item out at a time, OR I will cast on something completely new.
After I finished the Juliet Scarf (which still needs blocking!) I did cast on for something completely new. This (above) is McCafferty! A beautiful pattern created by a beautiful young girl. I’m sure many of you know Lily (and her Mom Amanda from JoliHouse). They live in my neck of the woods in England ;-)
To be really honest with you I never intended this to be a gift, I’ve loved the pattern ever since Lily’s Mom blogged about it, and I just had to buy it as soon as it was available. I have every intention of keeping this for myself - is that naughty of me? No, I didn’t think so ;-)
I did cast on for something really easy while I was knitting the lace edging of this, and it is to be gifted . . .
Hard to tell from this picture, but this is a simple cowl using Lion Brand’s Homespun. It has a contrasting ‘fluffy’ edge. I can’t quite remember the name of the yarn but I’ll put it on the finished details once it’s complete. I plan on making a pair of mittens to match with fluffy cuffs too. Should be a rather nice gift set I think.
So, that’s what’s on my needles this month. What’s on yours?
