After months of it NOT happening, this is a very good thing!! I'm stoked, and trying to finish up a few things before the day of surgery. I've promised several people that knitting will NOT go to the surgical ward with me, or even to the hospital. If I can finish his third sock before I go, I'll be very happy, tho' I'm also trying to finish his Creel Cowl, and then, for me...
My Downtown Christmas Ever After Cowl. This is the Lorna's Laces in the Sportweight that I bought last holiday season to participate in the Christmas at Downtown Mystery KAL from Jimmy Bean's Wool. But I didn't have time to start when everyone else did, and as things went along, knew I didn't want to use the yarn that way. So now, here I am using the Ever After Cowl
pattern (it's a freebie on Ravelry!).
And for those of you who know me well, you should find it not the least bit surprising that I'm loving this little feather and fan pattern. (I do think F&F is my all-time favorite pattern in the world!) I chose to use the sportweight (the pattern is created for worsted) and downsized the needles to size 6 from 8. I love the fabric at this point, so I think all that was a good choice. It won't be quite as big around the neck, but that's exactly what I wanted, anyway!
And about those socks? Well, I'm up over the heel and progressing up the ankle. With luck they'll be done and done by next weekend. I hope.
