I’ve been bouncing a bit between projects recently, I usually like to stick to one project at a time but right now I’m enjoying the variety.
First up, I’m knitting some super fun neon socks. I’m knitting these for a fellow instagrammer, @olivesandpickles. She sent me a skein to knit socks for her and another for me to keep, I can’t wait to knit with this yarn again, it’s just a lot of fun. The yarn is Regia Fluormania Color. I’m knitting vanilla socks with my Knitter’s Pride needles, which are sharper than I remembered, there’s a hole being poked into my finger, so the second sock is moving a bit slower.
A shawl is the next project I’m knitting. I’m knitting it for the Stressed Knits podcast Indie Dyed KAL. It took me quite awhile to settle on a pattern to knit up, the yarn was an easy choice, I’m using House of a La Mode. I’ve been drawn to the bias shaped shawls lately, I looked at so many before I finally settled on the Be Simple Variations shawl. There are quite a few others that I’d like to knit but I thought a free pattern would be a good one to knit first, so I can see if I actually will like wearing the shawl shape. I am loving knitting the shawl, putting it away to do other things has not been easy!
And I’ve started another scrap project! This time I’m crocheting with sock yarn, I have only a handful of teeny tiny granny squares finished so far. Right now I’m planning on these just being the centers of larger squares, my plans could change but I’m hoping they turn out how I picture them! I ordered some yarn to make them bigger and join that I think will look good with all the random colors, just need to wait on the delivery now.
