This week I find myself
First up, is the sweater from last week. It is bigger but not enough to be photo worthy. It has gotten big enough to be too big for the 32" circ I have it on and the only bigger circ I can find is bamboo which I'm not really looking forward to with such splitty yarn. There isn't enough time to order a bigger cord for my interchangeables from Knit Picks so I am... stalled
Next, is the swirl hat for Doodlebug. It is looking lovely but is decidedly too small for my petite 14 month old (despite the fact I am knitting the 12-24 month size). Of course, I didn't check my gauge, sigh. I am too far along to frog and there is plenty of yarn left to make another hat so I figure I will finish it for some mystery baby but I'm annoyed and so I have... stalled.

Somehow Fall came while I wasn't looking and it was already getting dark by the time I took these
despite it only being 7pm.
Finally, I have cast on a baby blanket for a baby that is coming in the family in early December. The pattern has simple colourwork with a fun slip stitch that is easy to remember. I am a little apprehensive because I have decided to use cotton like the original (why, why?). I don't particularly like knitting with cotton and I'm worried the final result will look funny because I can't really block it. The pattern calls for a heavy worsted but I couldn't find any cotton like that (that I liked) so I am hold a DK weight double for a funky chunky effect that I can't decide looks cool or just kind of... weird. Currently... stalled.
What I really want to do is cast on my new (first ever) Zauberball for this infinity scarf. I have delayed myself by suggesting that it will make a great travel project and that maybe, just maybe, I already have enough on the go.
