Dabbling in Projects

I'm unfocused a bit right now... I'm working a little on several projects right now. Let's do a run down:

The Natural Beauty Fair Isle has about 2 more inches to go before I divide for the sleeves. It's starting to get a little warm in my lap, so I can only work on it in the mornings before the house warms up.

The Belted Box Stitch Cardigan is almost to the belt loops. That should be fun, as each "loop" is a seperate piece of yarn (and yes, Kristen, I do think it's easier than doing intarsia, as at least it's all the same color, but by gosh that going to be a lot of ends to weave in).

A new project! I've been playing around with some of my stash sock yarn to find an other good choice for the Slip Stitch pattern I used for the Claudia Handpaints socks... not all handpainted yarn works well with this pattern. I tried the two Cherry Tree Hill yarns in my stash and they didn't work at all. The short color repeats makes the slip stitches disappear... good for some patterns, but not the slip stitch. So I pulled out some Blue Moon Fiber yarn (in County Clare) and they seem to be working well. Nice yarn to work with, too.

And finally, the Shoalwater Shawl. Tonight is our SnB KAL night for this project, so I'll probably try to get a few more rows done on it today. I've got a looooong way to go.

So I'm just sort of dabbling in a bunch of projects right now... fairly typical of me after I finish a sweater. I'll probably do the same thing today... just a little of this and a little of that...

Happy Knitting!!


  1. I'm loving the natural colors of the Natural Beauty. And the shawl colors do look like rippling blue waves. I'm feeling the same way as you, dabbling here and there, and still wanting to put something else on the needles.

  2. You have been tagged by Molly & Murphy! It's a blogging game where you list weird things about you or your children or your dog (or really, whatever you want - weird things in your fridge or sock drawer could work too). Go to sarahsthreads to see the rules as they were passed on to us.

    (P.S. Why is it that you're always tempting me with beautiful new projects?!?)

    I love that fair isle! And the STR blues/greens is calling me, even though not really my colors...
