In case you haven’t noticed, it’s pretty cold in Massachusetts right now. Like really cold. Like record breaking cold. Like so cold my usually unbearably warm apartment is cold enough I thought the heat wasn’t working (it is).
So today I’m definitely going to be a hiding inside and knitting kind of day. After spending a morning on Ravelry under the weight of a million blankets, I’m feeling inspired to work on all three of my knitting projects. Yes, three. Why three at once? Well…
There’s the Free Rapunzel Hat by Tiny Owl Knits. I started this hat in the fall, my friend B gave me the pattern book for Christmas Last year. I’m working it in a fun, yellow chunky knit yarn. I was knitting using size 13 needles, but the yarn is so thick my size 13 double-pointed needles couldn’t hold it. I needed to wait for my Christmas present (a new set of circular needles) in order to have the right size to finish the project. I’m so close to done I can’t wait to finish it!
Then there’s the Cowl by Carla Positano Designs that I got in a knitting kit at a festival this year with B. We’re both working on this project and it’s been fun to have a knitting partner to compare project notes.
Finally, there’s the River Shawl by Softsweater Knits Sylvia McFadden. I got this pattern during one of Sylvia McFadden’s promotions over the summer and have been anxious to try it. After the wedding, my husband and I stopped at The Yarn Sellar in York, ME and I bought some new yarn for this pattern.
The wind is howling something fierce outside, so stay warm everyone and happy knitting!
