For now, you'll have to settle for getting up to speed on the projects I've been working on lately. I think I mentioned it, but a few weeks ago I brought my Peerie Flooers Mittens out of deep hibernation and started working on them again. I love, love, love these, but I've learned something about myself: I hate doing 2-handed colorwork on dpns. It's ridiculously slow going for me, and also awkward and fiddly. If I'm ever going to make all the fabulous colorwork mittens in my queue, I'm going to have to brush up on my magic looping. Maybe that will be easier?
Anyway, mitten #1 is chugging along (No, really. It is.) rather nicely...
I have high hopes to finish it this week, but we'll see if they materialize.
In other news, I started a Hermione's Everyday Sock to knit up on the plane and during down time on vacation. I absolutely love the yarn, but it's a little bit fuzzy so the stitch definition isn't great. I think I'm okay with it though. It's such a pretty color, and sooo soft.
And yep. This is me practicing my magic looping. So far so good, but I'd be farther along on the sock if I had any clue how to work a heel on two needles. I think I've got some youtube time in my near future. It can't be that hard, right?
That's what's going on around these parts this Wednesday. I'm still working on the Austin Hoodie, but haven't made any progress to speak of lately so you'll see it again when it's bigger. Until then, go check out all the lovely projects on the needles and hooks over at WIPW. See you Friday!
