No sewing this weekend: I have raging toothache and can hardly bear to move from the sofa. This is good for my knitting though!
I have two single socks to show you.
First up: Arnulf by Rachel Coopey. Once I hit the stripes there was no stopping me!
I need to get myself to that point with sock 2 this week and then it will be all systems go.
And this is another Rachel Coopey design: Solar Flair.
Although it is easily memorised, this stitch pattern aggravates my RSI, so progress is slower than expected. I might take a break before I start sock 2.
I have reached a happy place with my Monte Rosa cardigan: I can see what I am doing now and am less reliant on the charts. These pictures show what it looks like at the end of page 5.
I love the way the shoulders turned out!
I came close to casting on a new shawl / scarf the other day: Vintage Fremont.

It reminds me a bit of the Hitchhiker Shawl but is a bit more delicate with those lacey sections.
I even wound a skein of sock yarn into a ball before I realised it was a bit too crisp and borderline scratchy – that’s no use for a scarf! So I am just considering my options: I have no shortage of soft and luxurious goodies in the stash, I just need to make a decision. Perhaps I need to start by deciding who I am knitting it for – the plan of a genius!
