I’m almost done with my Catkin – I’m about halfway through the second chart:
Pattern: Catkin by Carina Spencer
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy in ‘Gothic Rose’ and Enchanted Knoll Farm Superwash Sock in ‘Gold Dust Woman’.
I am very worried that I’m going to run out of the gold. I have 6 more loooonnngg rows to work with the gold, and I swear I do not have 6 rows worth left. I’m hoping maybe the gold-ish Dream in Color yarn I originally got for the shawl will blend in well enough for the last few rows. We’ll see.
But I did find some wonderful buttons for it! I took a trip this last weekend to the huge fabric store Mary Jo’s in Gastonia and found a few buttons that I liked. I think I’ve settled on these:
I also started on a knitted Sackboy for my son. We just started playing Little Big Planet a couple of weeks ago, and the whole family fell in love with the knitted main character. So I found a pattern (by Alan Dart!) and I’m going to make one for each of us.
My son wanted his to have an open mouth, so I gave it a shot with some short rows. I’m not 100% happy with how it turned out – I’ll try to tweak it some more for the next one.
And I casted on my first Summer of Socks pair:
I only have a few rows done, but at least they’re casted on! It’s the Summer Spirals pattern, and I’m using a skein of Tofutsies that I’ve had in my stash for forever.
So that’s what’s on my needles right now. I’m hoping to have the Catkin done by Friday, so maybe I’ll have a FO to show you for FO Friday! 🙂
