Update: Actually KALing in a Timely Fashion!

Cable Net Socks (Project Spectrum):
I enjoy making socks (granted, this is only my second pair), but the tiny needles do hurt my eyes a little bit. Once I’m through with the ribbing, the stockinette and cables will be easier… I HATE purling in the round, or at least switching the yarn like in the ribbing.

Wicked:
I’ve been making this sweater while reading Wicked and listening to the Wicked soundtrack. I put the sleeves on scrap yarn last night and I haven’t had a chance to try it on yet. But hopefully I will do that tonight or tomorrow.

Central Park Hoodie:
I have the back and both fronts finished. The ribbing on the sleeves is pictured below and I am hoping to finish this sweater by the end of the month, with any luck!

I <3 Wool!!!

Posted by allie on February 5, 2007

I don’t know what it is, but everything I’ve been knitting lately is woolly and wonderful. Today, I spent my time working on Wicked, Central Park Hoodie, and my Hidcote Garden Shawl.
I love the feel of wool as it winds through my fingers and I am always reminded that no fiber will ever be as perfect (to me) as wool!!
Anyone else who loves wool and cannot knit with anything but, a shout-out is encouraged…
I LOVE WOOL!!!
