I started the Swing Cowl!!!!
Last week, Denise really encouraged me to go ahead and start this project because "it is so much fun!" Of course, I couldn't resist that, so I sat down that night and started it. If you've seen her gorgeous Swing Cowl (go HERE), then I'm sure you understand why I was so anxious to start one too! And she's right, this one is a lot of fun and holds my interest easily :)
Here is another picture of where I am so far.... even though this is a night pic and not so great, it will give you an idea of how far I've gotten and the lovely movement in the design! The colors appear much darker here than they really are....
This is the yarn I am using, so there will be many lovely variations of color transitions - YUM!!!
I did my first provisional cast-on for this - I love learning new things!!!
By the way - pay no attention to those fingernails which are in desperate need of a manicure!!!
I think I need to hire a fingernail stunt double -- Anyone interested?
The pay is lousy, but you'd get to play with lots of lovely yarns & fabrics! :*D
I also managed to show some love to my red House Targaryen socks......
This one is just about ready to start working on the heel - yippee!!! I really enjoy working on socks.... I sure do hope this pair fits me :)
And last but not least is confession time..... I bought yarn!!! Although I had made up my mind that I wasn't going to do that, and I really want to knit from my stash, I caved in to the pressure of a pattern I want to make and a SALE!!! Okay, I admit it, I'm a sucker for a sale! Knit Picks had this lovely deep royal blue fingering yarn on sale last week...........
..... so I bought enough to make a Rocio Sweater - see it HERE on Ravelry.....
|Of course, the color is not quite right, even taken in broad daylight :(|
