Projects: Current, Finished, Fantasy and Wearing

Sherri
  • Knitting a pair of Mount Mocco socks for herself out of Regia 6-ply. Sherri's Mount Mocco socks on Ravelry 
  • Knitting on more socks. In fact, she has a pair of socks on all the sock needles she owns. And she's thinking about buying more sock needles to cast on more. 
  • Fantasy. She's been thinking about sock yarn, tossing her stash for sock yarn, and bought sock yarn from Little Knits.   

Tamara
  • Finished! A fingering weight hat for the older teen in a deep grey sock yarn on the top and bottom and a neon rainbow strip in the middle. The neon rainbow yarn is a mini-skein set from TallPineYarn and she loves it! She shared a look at it on Instagram
  • Working on another matching hat with the neon rainbow started lower. Then she'll let the older teen pick the one they love best and keep the other one for herself. 
  • Knitting on socks!! It turns out she's a sock knitter again and she wears handknit socks again. 
  • Wearing!!! Tamara has started wearing her design sample sweaters! This is a big change in mindshift from saving them for hypothetical future events to simply wearing them now because she loves them. She's been sharing sad attempts at selfies in them on Instagram each week or so. She's loving wearing them and it feels like growth. 
  • Fantasy. Tamara is dreaming of a deep red worsted weight fall poncho. Her Clover Poncho (Ravelry link) was in the book Malabrigo 17: Ponchos & Familia a while back. (In fact, it was the cover photo which is cool.) But the original idea for that poncho was not used. She's excited to pull that back, rework the idea and get it on the needles. She's thinking to use Malabrigo Rios for this one since that was the original plan. 


Mulligans

Sherri:
  • Her brother's Christmas socks are still ongoing. One sock is almost finished now! But needs ripped back some since she knit them at least an inch longer than needed. The second sock should be on the needles sometime soon. 
  • Her April Cardigan is finished. But the yarn for this is heavy enough that it doesn't fit the way she wants. So she's in the process of sewing twill tape to provide structure for the shoulders and neckline.
