I have been really trying to finish some of the projects that have been on my needles for a while. I feel like it’s a spring cleaning of my knitting basket. One more thing needs to be finished and then I’m planning to start my first sweater. I’ve decided that my first sweater will be the Featherweight Cardigan. I will be dying my own yarn for this, but haven’t decided on the color. I’m thinking a grey or some other neutral color so I can wear it with many shirts.
I finished my Hermione Everyday socks in my Spring Tulip colorway and love them. It’s just a little sad that the weather is finally getting a bit warmer and I won’t be able to wear them. At least I’ll have some nice socks waiting for when it gets cooler. Maybe I’ll even have a few more by then.
I also finished my Clockwork shawl that I think I started last August. It’s lightweight and I think that the colors will be perfect for the summer. I used Madeline Tosh. The pink color is Espadrille and the tan is Antique Lace (I think).
I did start something new today! My friend Seashore Sharon (Instagram – @seashoresharon) gave me a whole bunch of her leftover yarn so I could start a Cozy Memories Blanket. I was so surprised yesterday when she gave me a bag with so many different awesome minis at our knitting group. I had to start it! I think my first square worked out well.
