The lace panel jacket/cardigan is blocking, so it’s time to get something else on the sticks! It took 2 trips to the yarn store today, but I now have yarn and needles for 2 new projects! I started swatching for the Cabled Turtleneck form Rebecca 28. I decided to use Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky…and just happened to find it for 50% off! I had to order 2 extra balls online, but didn’t much care after getting 12 balls of the stuff for FIFTY PERCENT off. I won’t be knitting this one during my Thursday night knitting club, lest I spill beer or coffee or rhubarb pie on my soft white yarn, so I needed something else to keep my hands busy. I’ve been wanting to knit socks—not because they interest me that much, but just to see what all the fuss is about. I do like having a small project going at the same time as a larger one, anyway. I bought some Koigu sock yarn in a dark raspberry colorway, and I think I’m going to try this toe-up pattern .
(Also, after wearing the Prairie Tunic for a solid 6 hours, I think I might kinda like it. I also gave the Razor Cami another night out and I might be digging that one a little more, too. I guess I won’t avoid lacey cami patterns altogether…)
