One of these days, I’m going to learn. If it’s possible to do the endless K1P1 ribbing first, I will do that first so I don’t end up in the final stretch of a project, moaning over the endless K1P1 ribbing.
Yes. I’ve been here before.
That there is the Elizabeth Cardigan. The body of the thing is done, as you can see, but for blocking and seaming. And I’m currently working the endless abyss of the collar. The first bit is in the middle of the picture there. It’s 47 stitches in ribbing, long enough to go up one front, around the neck and back down the other front. I might be almost to the neck by this point.
We won’t talk about the seaming. (Shudder.)
I know, I know. It’s been going a long time, but it is a sweater. And those take a long time.
At the same time, these things are coming along a bit:
Yep. I’m up to the toe of the first sock of a pair. That’s a plain sock in handspun Shetland from Spunky Eclectic in Reading Rainbow (n-plied). And I’ve caught my stride on the twisted stitches on that hat, and it’s gone from pain to pleasure. (That’s the Proverbial Cap in Clun Forest yarn.)
On the wheel, I’ve already plied this up:
(4 ounces of sw Merino from Two If By Hand in Burning Witches…darnit, there’s an update tonight. I shouldn’t have looked.)
And I’ve spun another 4 ounces of singles in the January Spunky Club colorway (which is waiting to be plied) and moved on to this:
That’s 4 ounces of Cheviot from Southern Cross Fibre in Hay Sunrise. Slow going because I’m aiming for something sockworthy. And I chose it because I thought the colors were sort of similar to the cardigan, and so socks made from this would be nice to wear with that.
And in the midst of it all, the K1P1 goes on…and on…and on…and on…and on…
Have a Great Weekend, Friends!
