Big knitting plans for the next few months.

I'm planning on finishing the Hourglass today. There are 2 more rows to knit, plus all the seaming, but it will be just the thing to do tonight, while watching a bit of tv.

Then I'm starting the Greek Pullover. Finally. I've been meaning to knit this for ages, but what with the missing copy of IK it wasn't to be until now. Still, I have all the yarn - bought it months ago - so all I have to do is cast on! :)

Also, there are more socks in my future. As you can see from the KAL button on the right, I've joined the Socktober Fest 2005. I loved the name - reminds me of living in Munich and the Oktoberfest (Beer Festival) - and I think it might be just the thing to make me knit a little quicker. Also, it means that the beautiful soft sock yarn that I bought from the Natural Dye Studio (ebay) will not sit around for too long:


And a close-up:

Is it not pretty? And it's so soft. Apparently it's merino yarn.

There is more, but I haven't taken a picture yet. :)

But back to the plans for the next few months:

I desperately need to have some kind of bag for my laptop - I carried it around in my backpack yesterday and it's already scratched. Oops! ;-) Might attempt Satchel (knitty) soon, as D was asking for a felted bag anyway.

I have also promised to knit him a hat from our first-ever handspun New England yarn, so I will have to squeeze that project in somewhere.

And last but not least, I have bought a batch of Amy Butler fabric and am planning to make some bags for various friends for xmas.

Do you think I'll get all this done before the end of the year?! What are the chances? ;-)

  1. I love the excitement of casting on a new project. This Greek pullover has been waiting so long for your needles!!! I am looking forward to seeing the first pictures...
    As for your Xmas projects, if you are as disorganised as me: not a chance!...

  5. There's a pattern for a felted laptop case in IK Fall 2005 - serendipity?

    Love the sock yarn. I did some socks in the merino and they are lovely and snuggly.

    Good luck with the knitting plans!
