Episode 24 - I Definitely Finished February!
There are a lot of finished objects and a rant at the end. Also, NO editing!
Off the Needles/Hook
Habitation Throw by Helen Stewart - Curious Handmade - using my December Swap from Jen Study
CU Buffs Socks in Steampunk by Artistic Yarn by Abi. I started these for the Pigskin Party, then my team was awful, but we signed a new coach, and I finished these up. Nothing too special here - toe up, Fish Lips Kiss Heel and a folded cuff.
Hudson Bay House Slippers with Lion Brand Thick and Quick. I based these off the Turkish Bed Socks by Churchmouse Yarns and Tea, but I made a ton of modifications. And no, I won't publish them because it isn't my pattern to publish. Sorry, but all I really did was make them in the round, and no seaming on the sock.
Astra Cowl by Ambah O'Brien. I knit this up in a day and didn't even bother to take any photos. I simply wanted a cowl with some mohair, so I hit up Jimmy Beans Wool and ordered Berroco Ultra Wool DK in Cream and Maritime, and Berroco Aerial (mohair/silk) in Degas.
I FINALLY finished my Sassy Spirit Wrap (RAV link) by Megan Williams of the Stockinette Zombies video cast. This was on my needles like 11 months, and I love the finished object, but I just got stalled out. And again, no photos. I really should do something about that.
Arcade Shawl by Katy H Carroll (RAV link) aka Katinka Designs. I started this at the ZK retreat in 2022, and it was not even on my radar to complete in February. But once I had finished everything else, I dug into it. It turns out I was only 16 rows into the pattern, so there was a LOT of knitting to do, but it was a really nice project and good Lord do I LOVE Three Irish Girls yarn. This was knit up in Adorne Luxe Witches Brew and Tits Up! I could knit EVERYTHING in Tits Up!
I'll admit it, I'm doing these notes days after recording, and I haven't a clue what I said were my WIPS.
Up Next: Make It March!
I have a slew of WIPS sitting around, so I think it is time to work on them! I hope not to be too distracted in February so that I can move on to more garments for the rest of the year!
Night Owl by Heidi May of The Velvet Acorn using Knit Picks Wonderfluff in Turquoise Heather. Yes, I made this a few months ago, and I would most definitely use the yarn again! Project Page or Ravelry post.
Tahoe Shawl by Get Knitfaced in Colorado in the sample colors, but I don't know what they are as I type this!
Pavement by Veera Valimaki using The Lemonade Shop in Toxic Oreo, and another using some Mudpunch tweed I picked up on sale, that I had no need to purchase!
