This week I've cast on:
The Pretty Thing pattern from the Yarn Harlot. We had our ups and downs initially resulting in two lots of frogging and starting over. I'm well into the pattern now, and enjoying it thoroughly. And it is certainly very, very pretty. It's not for me - no use for cowls in sub-tropical Queensland. I hope the recipient will be happy. I'm doing these on my new Addi circulars. They are great, but my one complaint would be that they aren't quite pointy enough. Unlike Knit Pros, which you could use as a weapon if you really wanted.
A stole that I'm doing for Gabrielle from American Yarns in a gorgeous blue baby alpaca.
Not quite casting on, as it's crochet, but I've started a blankie for my cousin's oldest son. I think I have the perfect teen boy colours, so I hope he likes it. His mother will love it because it won't show the dirt.
I probably shouldn't mention the blanket I've started but not finished yet, or the two pairs of socks I still have on the needles. I probably should also not mention that I'm planning on casting on another pair of socks today - which will be a gift for the same lucky person who will be getting the cowl.
Have I mentioned that I would really love a clone? Or maybe the power of super speed. Hmm, the needles would probably catch on fire!
