A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

After the Shawl

I finally finished Drachenfels!* It felt like it took forever to knit. And it kind of did. It was my only project, other than a few log cabin squares for all of April and the first two weeks of May. And now it's sitting in a crumpled ball waiting to be blocked.


The yarn, Cormo Sport by Elemental Affects, is delightful. It's soft but not mushy, makes crisp clear stitches and is springy as all get out. Seriously, I would sometimes get distracted while knitting and find myself just holding a length of it between my hands pulling it out and watching it spring back to shape. Boing, boing, boing. Delightful!

When I finished Drachenfels I couldn't decide what to do next. I need to dye more yarn before I can continue on my log cabin blanket. So, being me, I knit a few hats. I finished another X-ing X's  that I had cast on before going to the movies months ago (Zootopia? Probably.) 


Then I started another hat for a viewing of Captain America: Civil War. A two-toned affair.


Now I'm knitting a plain black, ribbed hat for a co-worker's husband. 


I have to pick out my next project. I'm deciding between the Honeylocust Loop and Waiting for Rain but if history teaches us anything I'll probably end up starting something completely different.

*I see that I never mentioned starting Drachenfels here. I started it. Then I knit it. Now it's done.
