Well, it’s the middle of the week, it’s 61 degrees F outside (way to cold for June), it’s overcast and my knees hurt. Quite a Wednesday! Now, onto knitting!
I’ve made some progress on Meave and the toe is slowly growing but I still need to find my cable needle (I’ve never gotten the hang of cabling without a cable needle) in order to keep going.
Even though the 100% cotton yarn is difficult to work with because a) it’s technically crochet thread and b) cotton has no stretch; and so even though the knupps are showing up really nicely in the fabric, it’s a little hard on the hands because it’s rough. I hope that when it’s washed and blocked it’ll be softer.
“Helms Deep or Hogwarts” is moving along.
And I think that’s everything I have in progress right now. I’m eagerly awaiting the 20th of this month where the first part of the KAL pattern will be posted and I can get started on that, but for now I’m really working on my lace projects which are fun but slow going due to the fact that they’re… y’know… lace.
