But in the "look what I have accomplished" department, I finished two lingering knitting projects. Not one. Two.
Granted, they were both well underway and they're both small, but there's nothing like empty knitting needles to give me a little boost. Sometimes I have to create my own positive feedback and finishing projects is a great way to do it.
I know it's not a pair. This is a booth sample and I only need one mitt, but I started it just the other day, and now it's in the finished pile.
Some day I do want to make a pair for myself if I ever have time for self-indulgent knitting again.
This design features reverse stockinette worked on the wrong side for minimal purling. The yarn is Oma's Organic, Peat Moss. One skein equals a pair. Not to instill any panic, but these mitts would make a nice gift item if you're thinking ahead.
Also featuring Oma's Organic . . .
Woodstacking Cowl in Byzantium. Last year I made this cowl in a different color to give it a test run. I liked it so much I decided to make it a regular feature. The fabric is full of depth and texture . . . cushy comfort. This is another one skein project that knits up quickly.
Since I finished two projects, I feel fully justified in starting something new, but I'll save that for later in the weekend. My husband is right. It's time to jump-start the dye pots.
I've already noticed some leaves changing color, so when I found this hidden in a hedgerow, it caught me by surprise. It had to be my color inspiration for the week.
