I recently picked up an old WIP. (That's what re-organising your stash does!) The Ten stitch blanket is so addictive. Suddenly you run out of yarn, because you've just been sitting there knitting and knittig without noticing how far you've come.
I'm test knitting a hexagon from the famous Beekeper's Quilt, which is a design I just love wildly. But to be quite honest I find I hate this sort of knitting. It's so tiny and fiddly. My fingers just don't like it. Bohoo.
Like many others in Sweden I am currently working on the shawl Stjärnhop. After having frogged it twice (or more?) work is now proceeding smoothly. I like how it's turning out and can't stop knitting once I sit down with it.
But I need to be careful right now. My left index finger has a slightly swollen joint and it's probably because of too much knitting. So rationing, rationing. (Boring, boring.)
Swedish knitting club Sticka! has just published its own version of Pinneguri's The Thistle/Barista shawl. I originally started this about a year ago, but for some strange reason decided to use another pattern for the two-colour knitting. I found a very complex design in Norsk Strikkedesign and started knitting.
Quickly I realised this was going to be too difficult to work smoothly, so the shawl just ended up in the hibernation pile.
But now there is a new version with a fairly simple star pattern! Of course, I can't help but start planning a change... I found this really pretty heart pattern in a book, you see.
Oh, well, first I need to decide on a yarn as it seems I may not have enough of the Visjö used in the photo above.
