I should be sleeping but look: I finished stuff!
The Purl Ridge Scarf! (Ravelry link)
I realize, actually, that I never talked about starting this project. I was deep in my desire to find The Perfect Yarn™ for the Dipped Infinity Scarf (which I am still determined to do) and then I saw that other people were knitting other scarves of the same type and I decided to, you know, be smart and look on Ravelry. I found Stephen West’s pattern for The Purl Ridge Scarf and I thought it fit the bill. Then I remembered this yarn, Ty-Dy Cotton which I bought in Placerville as a souvenir of my trip with the knitters to Tahoe last May. I never knew what to do with it… until now!
I love it already. I wore it for a bit today but it got too warm, even though it’s just cotton. I think it will be nice when it really is cold again, so that might be November.
I also finished a baby sweater.
Ribbed Baby Jacket (Ravelry link)
I made it to match one that Juls made for our knitting friend who had twins last week. Juls made the girl one and I made the boy one. It looks much cuter on the bear, don’t you think?
It’s All Seasons Cotton, of course. It’s a colorway that I actually bought from Juls a few years ago because she saw my Rogue knit from it and said she had this yarn and did I want it? Of course I did! I have two sweaters out of that exact yarn myself. I did not mean to make my friend’s baby match my sweater but I guess I did. Whoops!
I should have taken a progress picture of Aidez because there actually has been progress. I’m not convinced it will be finished at a time when it will be at all the right temperature to wear it but the cold always does come back eventually… right?
