Hooray for October and Happy Friday!
The weather is quite chilly lately, and damp. Much needed rain has greened the grass a bit. Woodpeckers have returned to the feeders after a short absence. Leaves are falling but the only colors so far are dirty yellow and brown. Still, I love this beginning of autumn.
No FOs for me this week, but there are a couple of knitting projects getting attention when I’m not working on the crochet blanket.
The Camellia Dolman for ~R~ is growing. Instead of knitting the pattern as written for a cardigan, I’ve added a front panel and am knitting it as a pullover in the round. The yarns are incredibly soft and the pattern easy to follow. I am using new-to-me needles, ordered by mistake. Knitters Pride Cubics are actually square and very comfortable. A good mistake! I’m on round 114 of 188, close to 500 stitches per row.
Barndom is growing as well. The ribs are formed by an interesting slip stitch and cable combination. It takes some concentration and stitch markers are a must. I’m really pleased with the way the colors play together.
I may need to set these projects aside briefly. There’s a pair of unfinished fingerless mitts hiding somewhere and my hands are getting chilly.
Enjoy your weekend!
