Eat.Sleep.Knit is doing a Flash KAL for stocking caps. Originally I wasn’t going to do it but decided a stocking cap would be a great holiday gift for a friend who spends a lot of time outdoors in the winter. I decided to make the Twisted Stocking Cap – put my fringe twister to work for the tassels but I plan to add more because well… more is always better for fringes, tassels, pompoms, etc.
I went stash diving and found some Farm Twist (Farm Twist yarn for a twisted stocking cap – seems meant to be) in a color called Fragile. Drips and drabs of colors on a white background.
I spent all yesterday until early evening cleaning out bins and containers of knitting projects. Much sorting, untangling, separating into piles of places to where they need to go. Ripped out a few projects I just don’t want to continue, reclaimed needles and stitch markers that were spread throughout all those containers. I also went through the “finished projects” to see what I want to sell, give away or keep. I’ve got some buttons to sew on some kids’ sweaters and sewed a few pom poms on some little kids hats. Progress was made but I still don’t have all the clutter cleared away – but I’m happy with the stuff I got organized.
One of the projects that I found in the drawer was a cowl – Harmonize – that I had all the color work finished on and just needed to do the dark teal section at the top on. So last night I finished knitting that and here it is fresh off the needles. It definitely needs some blocking but I’ll save that for a day when I have a couple things to block.
The yarn is Western Sky Knits DK and it is so plumpy and thick feeling. I love it.
