This “me only” December knitting is harder than I thought. I’ve done a recent sorting of the stash, and it reminded me that I wanted to knit another Likesleeves for Tilly. And Dodge needs a new hat (maybe this one). I’m sticking with my plan though. I will conquer the selfish knitting.
I finished the big, black neck thing for the husband over the weekend (which I decided counted as “me only” knitting…somehow… pictures to come. ), and I was just really getting into the hang of thinking about myself when the husband mentioned going to see a movie with the kids. I thought my knitting plans were foiled until I remembered that people sometimes knit at movie theaters. I usually don’t, but I grabbed a hat pattern, some wooden circular needles, and away we went. I decided on a hat that is a current favorite: Equisetum. I knit the last Equisetum a little more than two years ago, and I love it. I have deep, deep feelings for things that are gray, and so I decided on a gray hat. I was placing a Knitpicks order at the time, so I went with Andean Treasure in the only gray they had: slate gray.
Thankfully, they have updated their selection of gray since then (which I am super happy about), so as of this weekend, while watching Big Hero 6, I started my new project: Equisetum in Fog Heather.
It’s gorgeous and soft and coming along nicely. I can’t wait to wear it! Merry Christmas to me!
