Craft After Dark
One repeat in to the Irish Hiking Scarf. First cables were accomplished this morning at 6:30 a.m. I'm using the Jo Sharp DK wool that I bought (and hated) for Cozy. I'm still not fond of the yarn, but it's working better for this project just because it sticks to itself so well, and I'm not worrying about dropping stitches as I wrestle with the cables.|
Also on the needles: the Mostly Knit Round Hat from Sally Melville's The Knit Stitch. About 50% done in Mountain Colors 4/8's wool. Very yummy.
Starting to plan Christmas presents (if I have any hope of finishing them in time), so some burnt orange Cashmerino Aran is on the way for a mistake rib scarf for FIL, and I'm also awaiting some denim blue variegated supermerino for MIL hat. I should also start on Christmas stockings.
We are going to IKEA next weekend and I intend to get stuff to organize all my various craft supplies. Stamping especially has suffered because of my disorganized "craft area". I need a system that protects my stuff from toddlers and cats, all of whom seem to spend more time in my craft area than I do.
