Today seems to be kind of a crazy weather day around the country, so stay warm and be safe! I'm looking out the window right now at the sun on the clouds, even though we're expecting rain rain rain for the next several days.
Break is almost over and I've done more of some things (work) and less of some things (knitting and reading) but it has still been a good one. I had an Annoying Work thing yesterday but I remembered to try to flow with it, and it went OK.
These are done and blocked (but still a bit wet):
Speaking of which:
Finally, I need some input. While cleaning the guest/craft room, I found this set:
1. Casapink cowl because I love Casapinka. This one is pretty much 'mindless knitting' which I'm not in too great of a need for mindless knitting, especially once I divided the sleeves from the body in the sweater (above).
2. Gravity Shawl because I love samplers. The downside is that I'm not a huge shawl fan, this shawl was written for DK and while I'm ok with doing it in a different yarn, it may not look great and finally, I'm not sure I have enough yarn for it.
3. Double the cast on for the Silver storm cowl and use all six yarns. It'll be pretty and I'll get a lot of wear out of it. It is semi-mindless knitting (see #1).
4. Make up my own pattern from the gorgeous book Japanese Knitting stitch bible. This would be a challenge because these patterns are pretty complex, and if I take it on as a sampler I could try lots of different patterns and even if I mess one up I can rip it back and start again (note to self: lifeline). Downside is it would take longer and I'd have to decide which of the 100s of motifs go together.
What do you guys think?
