Heaps of stuff going on - family, knitting, work, friends, kids, husband, house - all too much for one koala to bear really. And I have to have a root canal. Maybe even this afternoon.
I was in need of a knitting project of the instant gratification variety.
And boy, did I get it.
Herbivore Scarf - Stephen West
A bright colour, a quirky shape, and twisted rib come together in this fun and quick knit. It only took me three or four nights to knit this piece in very loose gauge and I can see it on high rotation this winter.
Veyla Mitts - Ysolda Teague
These are also a completely indulgent knit - I did the first one in two nights and the second one in a single sitting.
But, with only metres to go, I ran out of yarn. I finished it off in a different colour - I could go back and make the other one the same, but I'm hoping the bountiful RoseRed can come to the rescue of this mitt.
I've also started (and finished) the first clue of the Evenstar Shawl - a Lord of the Rings themed knitalong hosted by Susan Pandorf. I'll leave the details of that to another day though..
How's your knitting going?
