Apparently I was in a new year, new cast on mood this month! 4 cast ons in one month is a lot for me. But I really couldn’t say no to a DK sock test from one of my favorite designers, and of course the Vertices United is a KAL that I didn’t really plan on casting on when December ended but whoops here we are. I had sort of been hoping to finish one of the pairs of the socks within the month, but it was not to be, as I was trying to dedicate time each day on my test knit due in March, so some days with rehearsal, all I had time to work on was a square and a few rows on that. I’m hoping to finish off the test knit in the next two weeks or so, I’m just about to start the stranded colorwork yoke on this bottom up sweater. I am super excited about my blanket progress this month! I did end up making a square every day (one day I did 2!) so I’m very slightly ahead of track to finish by the end of the year.
I think February will be more of the same. Hopefully I’ll cast off the test knit top and both socks this month, and then can spend some time on Vertices Unite. I don’t really have my next projects planned, I’ll probably cast on one of my sweater stashes and another pair of socks. But I’d like to also spend some time on the Larksfoot blanket and Grandma shawl. Those have both hit two years of being in progress, and I said that if I don’t touch them in 2022 I’d frog them.
What will you be working on this month?
You did well on your stitch count. I have never thought about counting stitches. That would very a whole new way of showing progress. Especially on large projects.
Such lovely projects Kath and agree with Marsha about the stitch count.
You do an amazing amount of knitting considering you work fulltime plus theater!! I only get about half the stitches you do in a month. Love your blanket squares.
Wow – you’ve got a lot going on! You are getting a lot of knitting done along with your production, and of course work 🙂 All of it looks lovely!
Great job on the blanket progress! I look forward to seeing the test knit when you’re allowed to show it off. I’ve been wanting to make a sweater with a colorwork yoke, so I’ve been especially enjoying seeing those projects lately.
Love your curly colourful hair. So busy, lovely knitting and singing.
