A three-peat, and current projects

What kind of knitter are you? Do you love the thrill of the new idea, technique, or project? Or do you find yourself revisiting favorite designs, over and over again? I’ve just finished knitting three versions of the same thing, as part of a design project. I can’t show you yet, but it’s really cute. I didn’t mind the repeats, because it’s a fairly mindless knit, good for multi-tasking or on-the-go knitting. (I’ll admit to watching a lot of Downton Abbey with this project!)

My other project is the Leif Slipover, and I’ll only be doing this once! I love the look of this, but I don’t like having to keep charts with me. I’d rather that my knitting be more intuitive. This isn’t a take-along project, for sure; I can only work on it at home! I’m up to the point where the previously flat knitting of the bottom portion has been joined in the round for the waist.


And since I need a carry-along project, I’ve started Vivian Aubrey’s String Theory. Go look at the rav link; it’s gorgeous! The yarn is what makes this, so choose a very special skein of something smooth and wonderful. I’m using Malabrigo Arroyo.


I have a big project coming up, so I”m going offline for a bit. I’ll catch you on the flip-flop! Oh, don’t forget, my Thrumbelina pattern is on sale through the end of this month…
