A preview of what’s to come…
This is almost complete. In the end it will be a scarf. I’m using Red Heart Unforgettable, in the color “pearly”. I love the striping effect and the fuzzy fibres. I’m using a 6mm hook and coming up to the end of the second skein. I was thinking of trying to make a matching hat, but I’m also thinking I’d like to try knitting a hat with this yarn instead. I have one skein of it left.
And this is going to be a slouchy hat, comprised mostly of clusters. I’m using Vanna’s Choice in the color “periwinkle “, with a 6mm hook.
My yarn bin is overflowing. It seems to be that as I use up one skein I replace it with 2 or 3 more skeins, lol. I told my husband that I’d like to sign up for one of those yarn-of-the-month clubs but his lack of enthusiasm about that idea leads me to believe that I should use up at least some of what I’ve got on hand before mentioning that idea again, lol.
A few days ago I picked up 5 skeins of Caron Simply Stripes in the color “jersey shore”. I can picture it becoming a c2c or perhaps a kids poncho or hat, scarf and mitten set.
I have a few amigurumi projects in the works, but they’ve been put on hold. I find it very difficult to work on them, especially the assembly of them, with my daughter hanging off of me.
I would really love to try to knit a shawl or wrap. I’ve crocheted many in the past, but never knit one. I have 4 skeins of Lion Brand Landscapes in the color “boardwalk”, and I think that would look great as a shawl or wrap, but I don’t know if 4 skeins is enough.
I could go on and on about what yarn I have and my ideas for what they will become, but, I think I should spend some more time working on my current WIP’S first! Lol
On that note, I’m off to see what progress I can make on my projects today…
Enjoy your Sunday!
