Startitis

Filed under:Hats,News!,Socks,Stash,Works In Progress — Aileen @ 08:20

…just in time for September! I was chipping away at Arielle on the road and have nearly finished it up. The sleeves need to be sewn in and I need buttons for it.

Since getting home, I have been consumed by the desire to cast on everything I see. You see, I’ve been here many, many times and have already initiated what can only be classed as damage control:

The 16-Sixteen Cables hat in Rialto Aran.

I’d forgotten just how squidgy Rialto Aran is. I can’t wait to have this done. It is already getting into hat weather a little.

I picked this yarn up in Delft. It’s been a long time since I knit a pair of socks and I just fell in love with the colour. For no reason at all, I have decided to knit these toe-up (my first proper pair!) and if I can keep going, turn them into knee socks.

The ‘only’ other yarn I got on my travels is this beautiful New England Shetland from Harrisville Designs. It is slightly heathered and I think the colour will match a lot of my other clothes. Today I plan to swatch and cast on for Peasy (ravelry link)! I am extremely excited.

  1. Love the colour of the heathered yarn ………….. and the pattern peasy will be gorgeous in it. Arielle looks fab also.

  2. Am in a similar state of startitis. Rolling with it is really the only solution. Also: YAY KNEEHIGH SOCKS!

  3. Thanks, I just added peasy to my queue. And am wondering what DK yarn I have… I think I only have enough yarn in a wool silk, think that’ll work? 🙂
