So I have a rekindled obsession. Knitting.
Since getting married my knitting has really been put on the back burner. Confession, my husband gets a little jealous of the knits I think. He is a cuddler, so if I am knitting while we watch t.v. he gets a little grumpy because I need my arms free.
I don’t know if it is a nesting thing, or grasping at something I know I am good at and familiar with. Or that I am trying to not buy clothes so as to keep my wardrobe paired down for ease of use. Whatever it is, I am obsessed. I have a list of projects I want to do. I want to buy all the yarn! So I’m thinking that I will do a regular post with my works in progress (wips). You can find me on ravelry @sarahkatie to also check them out.
My current wips…
- Nara Jacket by Carrie Bostick Hoge
- Baby Socks by Kate Atherley (free pattern on Ravelry)
- Barley by tincanknits (free pattern on Ravelry)
Here is my list of things I will be casting on very soon…
- Mae by Andrea Mowry
- Spin Raglan by Andrea Mowry
- Find Your Fade by Andrea Mowry
- Ara Shawl by Andrea Mowry
- Debut Shawl by Katiuscia Bayslak (free pattern on Ravelry)
- Lonnie Baby Bonnet by Julie Taylor
The Nara Jacket is really close to completion, I just have one more sleeve to knit, and that will probably only take about an hour or so to get done.
I have a cuff of one sock almost done, but these things are so teeny, they should be done in an evening.
And I started on this Barley hat, to match the Bandana Cowl (free pattern from Purl Soho) that I just made, but it may get frogged, because I want to get started on Mae.
I have received my yarn for Mae and got the hanks rolled into balls, so I need to swatch it. I also have yarn to knit another Lonnie Baby Bonnet, I already have one finished in newborn size, and am going to do another a size or two bigger.
I’m planning on getting started on Find Your Fade as my labor project, I will get it started and get into the flow of it, and then perhaps I will feel like knitting for relaxation during labor.
All of these projects I am hoping to get done over this fall/winter season, or I should say before I go back to work from my maternity leave.
Happy knitting everyone! What are your current wips? Share in the comments.
