I did take a little vacation from knitting, not because I wasn't enjoying it, but after working with wool all day, I found my mind drifting in other directions at night. With Christmas nearly upon us, the knitting mojo kicked in. I am making a pair of bright green Eliza mitts for my granddaughter. (they lean more towards jungle green then in this picture). I made the largest size for myself as I have man sized hands, so I opted to make the middle size for McKayla, but my inner voice is saying they will be too small. I will give it a few more rows before I decide weather or not to start over again. I am hoping that I won't have to start over, but that little voice is usually right.
I have also started a new sweater, Folly Cove, written by Julia Farwell-Clay. This is the perfect project for when you just don't want to have to think, only knit, and it's soooo pretty too! There is something so soothing about plain stockinette knitting. Back and forth, back and forth....I love the quiet rhythm.
....and that's it. I am really trying to not overwhelm my brain with too many projects. Leaving is still waiting for her last sleeve, but for some reason I have hit a wall with that sweater and it is taking a little time out for now. I will pick it up again after the holidays.
What are you knitting?
