Today is “Are you kidding me?” kind of day. I am amazed how people can do stupid things. The hardest part is when I witness more than one stupid event at the same day.
I have been working on few knitting projects this week. Yesterday, I finished socks that I started last Thursday. They were my “Karate” project for last and this week. I work on my “Karate” projects only when I have to wait for my son to finish his karate class. My feet are always cold (no matter what the weather is here in GA), and I needed a pair of summer socks.
I have picked I love this cotton yarn. It’s a good quality cotton yarn, and it’s easy to stop by local Hobby Lobby to get it when (if) I need more yarn. I plan to knit more, but with warmer weather I needed at least one pair of socks with shorter leg.
The second project that I am working on is a cardigan. It was planned to be mine, but I have changed my mind. I think my mom would be happy to get it. It’s a basic cardigan, knitted in stockinette stitch.
I will have to find some nice buttons for this project.
The third project is my first serious attempt to knit something without changing a pattern. I knit this beautiful Ginko Shoulderette . So far, it think I failed… maybe I did not…. I do not know… I have made this shawl a bit bigger, so I can get two more chart repeats. I changed size, but not charts. At the end I will get the same shawl, but a bit bigger. It’s not really pattern change, but still… I am knitting this for someone who is a big, tall person, and I think that bigger shawl would look so much better. I used yarn from my stash for this project. Sorry, no photo for this project.
