Recent Knitting

I made a 3 hats (one each for my husband and kids)

I couldn’t find the red one I made, so imagine that is there 🙂

This was a simple ribbed hat pattern from Ravelry.

When knitting for myself, I am going through a Madelinetosh/Veera Välimäki phase right now.

I started Different Lines a little while ago, but it is on a bit of a hiatus because I’ve been a bit sick and brain dead and can’t seem to manage the very simple amount of counting necessary for this shawl.

Will get back to it when my brain fog has lifted though.

Yarn for this is Tosh Sock in Byzantine and Tern.

As soon as I saw Pop Block in the Winter Knitty I knew I would make it. I scored a bunch of Tosh DK in Duchess (a nice variegated purple) from Webs recently. I’m almost finished with the first section of pleats.

If you happen to be sitting around your house lacking energy to do much but knit garter stitch and marathon Vampire Diaries, I highly recommend this pattern. This wrap is ridiculously easy to make, but I think the asymmetric pleating will look very cool and it is the type of thing that I can picture myself wearing all the time when it is done. Now that I see how easy it is to make these garter stitch pleats, I might experiment with them on some other type of garment.

Now I’m going to spend the rest of the afternoon winding yarn and finding out how Stefan and Damon are going to prevent Elena from being killed again.

There are so many Snarky Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, and dying campers in Mystic Falls, I’m not sure how any normal humans manage to live there.
