WIP Wednesday: Totally Distracted
I'm enjoying this little break from having long term projects on the needles (languishing socks notwithstanding). Of course, most of my time since last WIP Wednesday was spent spinning for the Tour de Fleece, and finishing one of the hats I had started recently. So, it kind of seems like I haven't been knitting at all recently, but that's only because there is hardly any visible/measurable evidence due to extreme distraction by trying to knit all the things. Anyway, I finally got around to starting the second Rowan baby sweater:
And while I barely worked on the chevron baby hat, I did manage to finish the ribbed cuff on this sock:
And then I started this garter stitch rug with some ginormous yarn and needles that are just TOO BIG. I know people say that big yarn + big needles = FO project in a jiffy, but for me, I think it will be just the opposite. I am not used to knitting with tree trunks, and just casting on the stitches was an ordeal in and of itself! But I will stick with it and finish this project, because that's just how I roll.
If you aren't tired of seeing finished hat projects, join me back here on FO Friday. Thanks for stopping by!
