I’ve been so busy in the garden that I haven’t been spending as much time knitting (or in front of the computer), but I couldn’t miss Ginny’s Yarn Along on Small Things. So here we are.
I’m almost finished with a hat for someone who needs it in Japan—it’s my Toddler Earflap Hat adapted for knitting in the around. I’ll share the updated pattern here next week. I thought it was fitting that the Noro Kureyon (made in Japan) in my stash return to Japan to keep someone warm. I might have just enough yarn leftover to make another hat for Nathan this winter. I love how nicely it stripes around a smaller circumference.
I’m also making good headway on my May socks, my own simple design that will be snug-fitting and tall. I’m using up every last inch of this soft self-striping yarn to get the full, stripey effect. I really like it.
I'm still reading the Friday Night Knitting Club, and if I read as much as I should be reading, I'd be done by now. If only I could figure out how to knit and read at the same time! (I've tried and it didn't work for me, although I heard that the Yarn Harlot does it. I'm not sure how.)
