As promised, here are the knitting updates. And since B couldn’t stay out of the shots we’ll call it Friday Cat Blogging too.
First up is the Clapotis:
Hopefully blocking will make it line up better, but this is just beautiful. Everyone says so when they see me working on it. It’s soft too. I’m sure it will make my mom feel very hip. I can’t wait to give it to her.
Also for mom is the knit.1 cardigan:
It kinda got pushed to the side when I got the Clapotis yarn. But I’m going to pick it back up soon since it’s the “official” Christmas present.
I’ve started making a headband out of that custom yarn:
I’m just doing a basic 6 stitch cable with 2 stitches of reverse stockinette and 1 stitch of garter on each side of the cable. It was really hard to photograph. I’ll make sure to do this one in natural light once it’s finished.
And finally, no longer a WIP, is Raspy:
Not exactly the cute tight hipster fit it was supposed to be, but I’m keeping it as a comfy loungy sweater. I really like the sleeve length, I can cuff it if I need my hands and pull it down over them the rest of the time. I’m also totally in love with the drop stitches. Here’s a cuter shot:
That’s my stash in the background, complete with my poor abandoned octopus. I’ll finish him someday…
