I’ve Been Knitting

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Mostly, a certain bluish-turquoise  mohair sweater has taken over my sitting-still life. I started 5 days ago and here she is now, ready to start armholes on the back:

Fortunately, I sometimes need something more portable to knit. This assures that I can not stay totally focused on one project.

The hat-turned-neckwarmer is looking lovely. I’m almost out of the color-changing yarn so I think I’m almost done knitting this. Maybe another two more purplish/blue stripes can be finished, probably not more.

I do plan to finish off both top/bottom edges of this cowl, with one round of single crochet in the solid turquoise. I cobbled a fix when I cast on the wrong number of stitches, and so even if I liked the edge I have now, it would not look consistent.

Besides, crochet is excellent for edgings on knitting. I will enjoy that. My wrist does not like crocheting very long, but I enjoy the change of pace when it is just the right solution for edgings.
