though lots of what i'm working on i can't quite tell you about yet... (though i'm hoping soon!) there are some projects i want to tell you about.
i've finally cast on for strathcona! i had a few false starts with this one... and i've had to drastically go down in needle size.. but it's just because i'm such a loose knitter. something i've been noticing in the last while...
but let me tell you.. i love this pattern! and of course, it's a jane richmond pattern. :) it's interesting enough not to bore you while you knit away.. and it's so fun to see it grow! also, i just love knitting with linen.
the pattern calls for a 4mm needle. and at first i just went down to a 3.5mm but i've decided i like the look better on a 3.25mm... crazy i know! but i think that the linen makes me knit even looser... i'm using the quince and co. sparrow.. in butternut.
anyways, i'm loving how it's working up so far.. and it will be such a treat to wear in the warmer weather.. :)
i've also been dreaming of knitting up pendulum for a while now (pattern by amy miller)... and i'm certain i've found the colour combo i want to use. i'm very attached to living here on the west coast. i've actually been here for 13 years... and so i do feel that this is home.
these colours are very "west coast" to me. mountains, and ocean... cloudy skies... rich, deep colour.. i love it..
and i am so wanting to wind these up soon to cast on.
i do think that the pattern will suit this yarn very well... and i'm so looking forward to wearing this often...
there's antother pattern that's been on my mind lots... and that's lintilla... by martina behm. and i have recently acquired some wollmeise.... so excited to knit with it... but of course, i can't decide on a colour.... here's what i've got...
what do you think? do you have a fave colour?
of course i have many more in my "very soon" queue... i've been thinking of swatching for a laceweight sweater. (!!!) i just wish there were more hours in the day :)
at any rate.. with the rain just coming down in buckets.. it's a great day for leggo, tea, and knitting....
tell me, what do you have on the needles? what do you have next up on the list of things to knit? i'd love to know what's at the top of your queue!xo
