I’ve been working on lots of projects this week. It’s been fun to play with different yarns, needles, and colors. I’m not certain that all three projects will stick, but that’s OK. Sometimes the experimentation is all that I need.
And, they’re all out of stash yarn, so all it cost me was a few hours’ time.
On the right in the bright orange is the almost garter scarf by Norah Gaughan (free pattern on her blog). I’m alternating 2 shades of Tess laceweight (held doubled) and plan to use all 7 shades. The next shade to use is that fuchsia color just above it. Not the most riveting project but I’m really looking forward to the FO. I can’t wait to see what the whole thing looks like when it’s done.
On the bottom in seed stitch is a swatch for Roam. I saw Diana’s WIP and I had to blatantly copy her. The swatch is in Araucania Nature Wool in berry.
And finally, the colorwork is the Latvian Fingerless Mitts from Veronik Avery’s Knitting Classic Style. I loved this one immediately and bought the yarn for it while working on St. Brigid. However, my tension is too tight so I’ll have to restart. I don’t think I have the heart to rip this though, so I’ll just put it in my swatch drawer as a gentle reminder to go up a needle size for colorwork.
