What’s on the needles?

Aside from the Utah Sky project and the Sweater of Guilt (which just needs to have the sleeves finished), I have a couple of new projects on the needles.

For my weekend trip to Phoenix (more on that later), I needed something portable but time-consuming. Laceweight is always a good choice, so with a bit of stash-diving, I came up with some Malabrigo in Lettuce to be made into Bitterroot. I made a good bit of progress on the trip:

Before leaving, I also cast on for some Duffers, which shouldn’t take more than a few hours to finish, so they’ll be great for SnB:

The trip also saw the demise of another project, my Kalajoki socks. I was trying to find some pattern to use with the Reynolds Soft Sea Wool I had, and thought this might work. I really like the sock pattern, but after completing one sock, I had to admit that I didn’t like the Soft Sea Wool for socks – or at least, not these socks. I think the yarn would be better used at a looser gauge. That project is headed for the frog pond.

    That is a very lettucey color indeed. Any yarn with soft in the name doesn’t sound quite right for socks to me.

    You’re making me want to dig out that GREEN! Malabrigo I have stashed. 😕

    Nice! I have a road trip coming up next week and I’m stewing over just what to bring for the long drive. Those duffers are nifty! Hmmmmmm…..

    Deon was thrilled to receive the Seawool last night! You’ve found a good way to get rid of your stash without knitting it.
    The shawl will be a perfect weight for year round wearing.
    From the look of your speed knitting last night, you’ll have a finished pair of Duffers today!

    Aw, you frogged the sock? I haven’t knat since Sparky’s, and I am feeling a little deprived. (Another night of early sleep and I may have this cold kicked enough to start thinking about it again.)

    Love that color for the shawl! It will be very springy!
