I finished my test knitting project over the weekend. I have to wait to show it to you, though, until Elizabeth officially launches her new design (I think late next week). For now, just know that I'm very happy with the outcome, and can't wait to put this new cardigan into my regular "closet rotation."
Finishing that project means . . . I have the knitting capacity for something new.
Those little yarn balls lined up on my lap are . . . it. I'll be "raveling" them into one of Andrea Mowry's shifty projects . . . The Shift cowl. I've already been bitten by the shifty-bug, having knit both a Night Shift shawl and a Shiftalong hat before. I decided it's time now for the cowl!
This time, I'm trying it in Andrea's shifty-favorite yarn, Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool. (I really wanted to see what all the fuss is about.) I'll tell you, that yarn IS shifty! Because those balls all rolled up there in that photo? Well. There are some Big Surprises hiding inside . . . under those wound layers! It may LOOK like it's going to be a bit "Valentine-y," color-wise, here at the start, but I'm thinking it won't be once I get going. (Stay tuned.)
I love Andrea's shifty designs. They are endlessly entertaining to knit . . . and really hard to put down once you get in the shifty-groove!
How about YOU? What are you working on this week?
