I always have a pair of socks on my needles. Best grab-and-go knitting project ever! And now that it’s starting to get chilly I’m extra motivated to crank out a few more pairs of wool socks for the winter. I’ve written about this yarn before, Regia Jacquard, which is so fun to knit just to see what pattern shows up next! I can’t get enough of this self-patterning yarn.
Also on my needles… a sweater I stared knitting over the summer, designed by my dear friend Laura Nelkin. It’s called Artichoke French and it’s part of the Rhinebeck Sweater Book. (I’m using Amherst Valley Yarns in Balsam, 100% merino wool) So far this has been a very fun knit! I love the shaping of the sweater and the cable-esque detailing is easy to do (and easy to memorize). It’s knit from the bottom up. I’ve got the sleeves finished and most of the body. Next up is joining it all together. I just might finish it in time to wear it to Rhinebeck and the NY Sheep and Wool Festival next month!
And speaking of my friend Laura and her beautiful designs, she’s got a brand new book out! It’s called Knockout Knits (best title ever!) and I can’t wait to finish the aforementioned projects so I can dig into this book. In the meantime you can check out the projects on Laura’s blog and Ravelry. I’ll be sure to show you what I decide to knit from it, there are so many gorgeous options!
What are your knitting plans this fall?
