After a long drought, I finally got back to working on some knitting projects. I can’t even count how many unfinished garments are stashed around the house, but there are two that I absolutely have to put on the fast track. First, there’s the Magnolia Cafe cardigan from Metropolitan Knits. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted a cabled fisherman sweater and had a bunch of fisherman’s wool reserved for when I found the perfect pattern. Magnolia Cafe rocks- not only does it have a beautiful cable pattern, but it has secret pink pocket linings. <3 Hopefully it will be finished by spring. There’s nothing worse than working on a sweater and not being able to wear it for months.
The other item I’m working on is a scarf for my son. Truth be told, I despise knitting scarves, but how could I say no to my little guy? L was pretty specific about wanting a yellow and black scarf “that looks like a bee,” so I pulled out my well worn copy of Charmed Knits and cast on a Hufflepuff Year 1 House Scarf. For a scarf, it’s the fastest and most mindless pattern you could possibly ask for. It’s knit in the round as a little tube, and then you close off the ends and add some fringe. L was super excited when he saw me working on it, so I can’t wait to see his face when he can wear his scarf.
So what are you working on this week? Are you juggling multiple projects or are you a monogamous crafter?
