Here's my weekly check in: I'm still working on my socks almost done with the first one. I haven't bee n putting in the time that I should, decided to do a test knit and that has taken up my time. The test knit is a cowl pattern , it is almost like a fan and feather pattern. It took me 4 try's to get the right yarn or one that at least worked for me. Attempt 1: using a mohair based yarn I really do dislike mohair, 2nd attempt: with a yarn that I had wound up still in the same color as the first one. I did about 2 inches and realized I twisted my knitting so off the needles and into the garbage. 3rd attempt:
Back to the stash found another caked yarn a brown with splashes of green in it, I can use green beads great. Just didn't like the color off the needles it goes. For my last attempt I pull out another caked skein and this one is working out. I have till the end of the month to finish it so I should be able to get it done.
I did finish a pair of fingerless gloves this week, I'll post a picture later this weekend. My cardigan is coming along. Well my brain is getting tired and I do need some sleep. Have a good weekend and GO HAWKS!
