As I posted in my previous post, I promised to provide a bit of an update on where I am now with my current WIP’s.
Firstly, I have completed the mittens and cowl for my swap partner. The colourwork turned out fine, I am happy with it, and was happy with trying it. I will be wanting to do more, but it will be little projects at a time, I would need loads more practice. I knitted a cowl, but it is open with buttons, so it can be fastened in more than one way, and therefore worn in different ways.
Then I finished my first sock that is my own design. It looks pretty nice, and now I can start the second one. I have had positive comments, so I feel pretty inspired about this, my very first own sock design pattern.
I also started a second pair of socks, these are for a swap partner, and I am using a local South African yarn, that is knitting so smoothly, I am enjoying this knit tremendously.
Then my Manos wrap is now only a few inches away from being complete. Then just for some pretty buttons, and it is all done. I must admit, this Manos yarn is so very soft, I can not wait to wear this. I can see myself wearing it as soon as I can feel a little nip in the air.
Soon all these will be off my needles, and I can start of my Summer Vacation Knitting, I have already so many ideas and plans, and have some of my yarns ready, here is one that I specially got, I am very eager to cast on and knit a pretty shawl with this.
