I’ve added a few new knitting patterns that I thought were worthy of sharing.
Joji’s Night Out Cardigan is so pretty. It’s fingering weight yarn so it’s lightweight enough to be a year round sweater for me. Inside almost every building is cold enough in Texas for me to feel like I need a sweater, even in the hottest part of summer. Joji’s patterns are always great and this one has just enough detail to be classic, yet striking.
Last week ESK had a “yardage boost” where you got 1.5 x the yardage. There wasn’t anything I had on my wish list but I knew if I ordered 6 skeins of Madelinetosh Twist Light, I could use it for a sweater. The 6 skeins would give me the sweater boost and the extra boost, so buying 6 skeins is 2,520 yards but with the sweater boost (at least 6 skeins of the same yarn/same color), I would normally get 3,780 yards, but with the “yardage boost”, it was 5,670 yards.
So, I ordered 6 skeins of Thyme, which is a green I have loved through the years and it’s now discontinued and I ordered 6 skeins of Iris, which is a beautiful purple. One of those will be perfect for this sweater. The yarn arrived yesterday at home. If it had arrived here, I’d probably have cast on last night. Good thing it’s at home . . I have projects to finish here.
Yesterday while looking at projects on another knitter’s page, I came across a dozen or more pairs of Felted Clogs that she had made. If you look at the pattern, there’s even some that have really pretty “decorations” on them. I’m thinking “Christmas gifts”! I bought this pattern in adult and child sizes.
For these I’ll use either Cascade 220 or Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted – something that felts nicely.
On the same knitter’s page, she had several pairs of short socks with a double roll at the top. The pattern is called “Jelly Roll“. I want to make these now but my yarn isn’t here. I may have enough leftover yarn from the Mother’s Day Knit Along but I have to finish it first and see if there’s enough.
For these, I have plenty of sock yarn . . just not with me.
So much to knit . . so little time.
