If you follow me over on Instagram, you might have seen that I finished Starting Point yesterday (queue happy dance) !
And because I’m in the somewhat unusual position of having a limited amount of yarn with me, I thought this might be a nice moment to take stock and show you what pretties I’ll be keeping myself busy with until my stash and I are reunited … which, given the speed with which our stuff will cross the ocean, won’t be until sometime in September.
As I’ve mentioned a few times recently, my Viola socks are languishing a bit. I’ve been trying to figure out why that is. I couldn’t wait to cast them on, I love the pattern, I love the yarn … but I’ve just completely stalled out on the gusset! I think part of it I’ve been distracted by other things, like nearly finishing my Arrosa shawl and starting Southwell.
But I also think part of me needs to change things up. I’ve knit a fair few pair of plain jane socks (my Droving Socks excepted!) over the past six months, and I think maybe it’s time for a little change of pace.
So instead of showing you yet another picture of my Viola socks in the same place (basically they’ve barely grown since this post), wanna help me with planning my next pair?
Not much has changed on my needles (still working on my socks — more on that tomorrow) or my nightstand (still reading and enjoying The Yorkshire Shepherdess — but it’s almost done, so I need to decide what’s next!). But today is the first day of March, and boy does spring feel like it’s on its way, so I thought today we could chat a bit about planning spring projects!
