One happiness scatters a thousand sorrows. ~ Chinese Proverb
Where did March go? Okay, I know I worked rather a large number of hours this month, but still it feels like it was just March 1. Last week, I hoped there would be a few completed projects. I have one hat that’s a bit too big for my head and the other project ran out of yarn. (Don’t worry, more yarn is on the way.) I decided I might just cast on six or seven more new projects. One for every day left in March. That’s right, cast on fever has hit.
Only three new projects this week. Here’s the list so far:
- Washted Thermals – My first ever project using the new base. Mitt number one is off the needles.
- Teal Feather Gluhwein – I ran out of yarn!
- Cian Nine – The cables are just starting to show on this pattern.
- Aniversario Rye – Rye is one of my favorite sock patterns and Washted is my new favorite base. A perfect match! Not to mention I’m leading a KAL if you want to join in the fun. – Definitely no new progress on this one, but April is for finishing.
- Fields of Heirloom Veggies – My new favorite yarn, Washted in Heirloom Veggies.
- Camaleon Flowers – Can one have too many Washted hats? Field of Wildflowers is one of my favorite hat patterns.
- Captured by Malabrigo March – This is my first time using the colorway Kris. I’ve made enough progress on this one to know it’s not twisted at the join. Big sigh of relief.
- Malabrigo Entralac – Still no project page for this one. I’ll get there in April.
- Lettuce Oscar – This one has an interesting construction. It has short rows in the ribbing before joining it to knit in the round.
- Perky Little Camaleon – Completed!
- Birthday Surprise – I made a coworker a Copy Cat C.C. Beanie last year. They requested another hat in a different color. How can I resist?
- Don’t Separate Me From My Malabrigo – I really love the base Caracol. I love the think and thin bits.
- Rugged Washted Headband – I really love the new Malabrigo base Washted. This should be a quick knit once I get past the casting on phase.
Sorry for the crummy inside photo with the collection of Burt socks. The front steps were too wet.
Burt’s feeling better. He’s still dealing with a delicate digestive track. Fortunately, he’s eating, playing and sleeping like normal.
I’m off to cast on another new project.
