Living with multiple WIPs you go through phases. Sometimes you just want to try new things. You go through a cast on frenzy and go from 6 to 12 WIPs in a week. Other times you just plod along on everything you’re doing, the patterns are familiar and you are content with the variety available.
This week was finishing week. 3 things finished in a week. An instant gratification knit, a quick knit on large needles and a smallish project. I love finishing week, everything just comes together and I didn’t even mind sewing in 32 ends on the wave wrap.
The next to be finished is the Cap Sleeved Top. This is a Debbie Bliss pattern and made in Debbie Bliss pure silk and I am up to the shoulder blades on the back, the front is finished.
Of course just because I’m in finishing mode doesn’t mean not starting new things. My hands were getting sore yesterday so I wound 260g of mohair by hand and started a mobieus wrap. This is another quick knit project. I used the Cat Bordhi cast on instructions from you tube. I found this a really clear and easy to follow method of casting on and it is fun!
I’m always confused when I read moebius cast on instructions probably because I can’t see what the final result will be. Seeing it is much better.
The ball doesn’t look that big in the photo but that is a 60cm circle of knitting sitting next to it – a 120cm circular needle with a double loop.
