Two for Tuesday

It is Tuesday, right? Things are starting to get a little muddled, and it’ll probably get worse before it gets better. And with my WIP count down to two, I needed to cast on some new projects to make sure I have plenty to keep my anxiety in check. My Penny sweater is going so well. I’m loving it! It’s lace front and back, so no miles of plain, boring stockinette, and it’s sport weight on size 6 needles so it’s going a little bit faster than the fingering weight Boxy. But also, on that note, the pattern calls for DK, so I have no idea why I ordered the sport-weight Malabrigo Arroyo instead of a DK weight like Rastita. But hey, I did a gauge swatch and made the appropriate adjustments, so it should be fine!

F746BB59-4973-4039-907F-7A0327BB211F_1_201_aI also started a new worsted weight cowl. The yarn is Delicious Yarns Frosting Worsted and oh, it IS delicious to knit with. I love how soft and supple it is, or maybe that’s just my mind playing tricks on me as I switch between fingering, sport, and worsted weights. In any case, this project is growing quickly, but it’s on hold for the moment.

The pattern is Wormwood, and it’s one of those bandana-style cowls which I love to wear, but I found a couple of errors that were giving me a little grief. So I messaged the designer, and she said she’ll be putting out an updated pattern in the next few days. I’m going to wait until that’s out before I knit more. Or at least I say that now!

Besides extra knitting time, the silver lining to being at home more is that I know my dogs are super happy. Duncan has been beside me 90% of the time, and the other two are pretty close. I hope you all are finding moments of peace at home as well.

    • I’m sorry to hear that. It’s definitely a hard time and I have to consciously force myself to click away from the news and relax my body. I hope you’re able to find some moments of peace!
