There’s nothing like a long weekend to get some extra knitting and crochet finished up. Despite being stuffed with turkey and the trimmings on Sunday, I managed to have a very productive Monday.
Son’s afghan is finally finished and ready for gifting at Christmas and the prototype for my next scarf pattern is done. I’ve got the notes for a slightly different finish and for the different yardages of suggested yarns and now it’s on to the pattern writing. I’m hoping the New Year will bring some new and improved software for writing and charting, it’s always nice to be able to offer options.
A Saturday visit to my LYS and my BFF – The Evil Yarn Temptress – resulted in one pair of very sexy Knitter’s Pride Karbonz and some Noro Kureyon Sock falling into my basket. Because… of course I need more sock yarn… Ahem. This will be my personal project for the upcoming Needler’s Retreat. Eighteen more sleeps!
I am excited to try the Karbonz. Reviews have been good and they feel good in the hands. Proof is in the stitching though, so I’m looking through patterns this afternoon. I may work up my own “Inuksuk Socks“, it’s a subtle pattern, not boring and won’t fight with all the “noroness” of Noro.
