the minute I complain about something here it seems to resolve itself! I still feel slow as molasses, but my progress on the garter squish blanket is really picking up speed now. After I finish this blue-black stripe I will be in the homestretch, with only one last orange-gray "stripe" to go!
the battle to finish other long-languishing works-in-progress continues. I've re-started my second chains sock and it's going quickly too. This pair of socks would have been finished ages ago if I hadn't accidentally goofed and made the "chains" cable in the wrong direction. These socks have sat for at least five months waiting to be frogged and fixed.
Lastly, you know I can't resist starting a new project, right? Right? Ha! I decided to frog last week's Montague Street cowl. I just wasn't in love with it. And ultimately it was intended to be a birthday present for my sister, so I changed course and cast on for this zig zag cowl for her instead. The pattern is a freebie designed for self-striping Mochi yarn, so I'm doing the work and striping two colors of Madelinetosh tosh chunky (smokestack and hollyhock). I had given her a hat made in the hollyhock colorway last year, so now she'll have a matching set. It's going fast! Aran weight yarn plus size 9 needles and only 61 stitches to work across = SPEEDY. I'm really curious to see how long the cowl will end up using two skeins. I'm already envisioning more of these with my large stash of tosh chunky!
